image001United Church people travelling in the Sudbury area this summer may wish to attend the following commemorative service.

On August 20, 2016 the Moderator and representatives of the Indigenous church and other members of The United Church of Canada will participate in a commemorative service at the site of the 1986 United Church Apology in Sudbury, Ontario. All who wish are welcome to attend.

The event will be from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. It will be a time of storytelling, journeying, and ceremony with folks who were present at the 1986 events. The event will begin at Huntington University followed by a walk to the Cairn.  After that there will be a barbeque back at Huntington.

The next day, Sudbury churches are hosting a joint service at St. Peter’s United (203 York Street, Sudbury). The service begins at 10:30 a.m. where the Moderator will be preaching.

The organizers would like to get a sense of how many people will be attending the Saturday event so they can make adequate preparations for the commemoration and the meal that will follow.

If you are planning to attend in Sudbury, please register online at:
