Christmas Hamper Campaign Success

This December, Crossroads raised $3630 for the city-wide Salvation Army Christmas Hamper Campaign, meeting and slightly exceeding what we raised last year. Congratulations to all the contributors for their generosity!
Although COVID restrictions have meant that the regular food hampers couldn't be made available, those enrolled in the program will receive grocery store vouchers to help with their food costs over the Christmas season.

Truth and Reconciliation Calls to ActionTruth and Reconciliation

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established in 2008 to document the history and impacts of the Canadian Indian residential school system on indigenous students and their families. Its final report was issued in 2015. In light of the recent revelations of gravesites identified on the grounds of former Indigenous Residential Schools, this is a good time to have a closer look at the Calls to Action (part of the larger report) that were put forward at that time.

About the season: Epiphany
When: Epiphany itself occurs on Jan 6 (on the 12th day after Christmas - hence the name of the Christmas song!). The season lasts either for a week or until Ash Wednesday (Mar. 2 in 2022), the beginning of Lent.
Meaning: "to reveal" - a shining forth of the light of Christ. Often a period for emphasizing the mission of the church.
Colour: WHITE
Event: Traditionally, Epiphany celebrates the arrival of the magi ("wise men"), the first to "reveal" Jesus to the wider world
