It happened on February 12th! I attended my second parish council in-person meeting in the past two years. Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples (Edmonton, Alberta) was having its second organizing meeting.
This very new parish council had almost 20 people in attendance! Parish President Mary Rose Mayowski, Edmonton Diocesan President Mary Molloy and Parish Spiritual Advisor Fr. Susai Jesu had an opportunity with a few members to take some photographs. As part of the meeting, one member spoke on the importance of personalizing land acknowledgements. In addition, those attending the meeting were asked to bring some baked items to add to the bag lunches distributed Monday through Friday from the church.
It is an exciting time for this new council that hopes to have its charter signed very soon. Let us keep the council in our prayers as it joins the many councils across Canada, members journeying together, Catholic and Living It!
