Please hold in prayer Hatigje Hasani and her family as Hatigje undergoes treatment for end-stage cancer. You may remember Hatigje and her husband Ali as refugees from Kosovo who came to Canada in 1999. At that time they received some support from Trinity members as they made a new life in Canada. Both Ali and Hatigje worked as caretakers at Trinity several years ago.

We hold in prayer community members and families as we mourn Rebecca Contois, Morgan Harris, Marcedes Myran, and Mashkode Bizhiki’ikwe and all Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

We hold in prayer those who have been devastated by Hurricane Fiona, including the people in the Maritimes. 

We hold in prayer Lorraine Antosh as she is in hospital.

We continue to hold the people of James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon, Saskatchewan in our prayers.
