Christmas Eve Service at Lakeshore [in church only]

Please note this special evening time to join us for our annual Christmas Eve service. This year back in the Sanctuary. We will hear our Lakeshore Community Choir, share memorable stories for all ages, and we will sing our favourite Christmas carols. 

Please come out in person to be together and to enjoy “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” 

New Year, New Perspectives [hybrid]

As the New Year approaches, let’s look to Buddhist and Hindu calendars and cultures for acknowledgment and celebration of new beginnings. What other traditional forms meet the universal need for hope and resilience throughout the year? 
Milda Graham is a Religious Studies scholar at McGill with a focus on South Asian traditions such as yoga, and the Sanskrit language. 

Saving the Wet’suwet’en Nation and Old Growth Forests [hybrid]

Marlene Hale has just returned to Montreal from her Wet’suet’en territory in BC. She had brought a Human Rights lawyer from Montreal there to meet with Hereditary Chiefs, and both sides of the pipeline. “I got to see at first hand the atrocity it has caused our people of Smithers BC and Witset as preparations resumed to tunnel under the Morice River [Wedzin Kwa] south of Houston BC, as construction of its natural gas pipeline from northeastern B.C. to the LNG Canada liquefied natural gas facility now underway at Kitimat continues.” Marlene will give an update on the Coastal Gas Link and its impact on the Wet’suwet’en Nation. 
She will speak about our Fossil Fuel Addiction, which is supported by Canada’s largest fossil fuel investor – RBC. “RBC must be accountable to their direct contributions to the endangerment of Indigenous Title and Rights.”
