Moment for Tuesday, September 13, 2022

We hold Meryle and Ben Berg’s sister Susan in our prayers as she journeys through cancer and is in hospice. 

We hold in prayer the family of Alice Allen on her death early this week. We will post details about her service in the next little while. 

The people of The United Church of Canada express our profound grief at the tragic events in James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon, Saskatchewan. Moderator Carmen Lansdowne, expressed her pain on hearing of these attacks and committed her ongoing prayers for “the families of the victims, and survivors as they deal with the resulting trauma.” Read the full news story.  

Members of The United Church of Canada join with others in Canada, Bermuda, the Commonwealth, and many other parts of the world in mourning the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Elizabeth was 96 years old. Read the full news story and prayer.
