ORANGE SHIRT DAY RECOGNITION IN CHURCH AND COMMUNITY – SEPTEMBER 26
On Sunday, September 26th, St. Albert United Church will be recognizing the significance of the Need for truth and reconciliation. You are invited to wear an orange shirt to church as we gather for virtual and in-person worship.
This year September 30th, Orange Shirt Day, will be the first observance of a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. As per previous years, we mark the day by wearing an orange shirt. Traditionally these orange shirts carry a reminder that “Every Child Matters” in recognition of the children who were forced into the residential school system.
For settler folk, this is a time when we can reflect on our role in the systems of injustice and our role in making reparations. It is a conscious opportunity for settler folks and Indigenous peoples to find ways to healing and right relations the authentic paths. Members of the Living Into Right Relations Team will be wearing orange shirts on the Sunday prior, September 19th. You are invited to join them in wearing an orange shirt, allowing for us to bring greater awareness to the ongoing daily need for truth and reparation.

SAUC SUPPORTS OUTLOUD ST. ALBERT
Outloud has been doing our very best to weather the pandemic storm but as you can imagine, it has been tough. The beautiful space that we moved into last January has hardly been used since we cannot have group meetings. The real problem is funding. Without groups happening it makes our donations very low. It doesn’t matter if the space is open or not, the youth still need help. What we need is an angel or group of angels to give us $30,000 to make our rent and expenses disappear for this year. Now that we have charity status you will receive a tax receipt for any donation above $25.
Please support Outloud as you are able.
