On Monday, June 7 at 12 noon, the bell at St Alban's Anglican Church at the corner of Ellice Street and Broadway Avenue Moosomin will be tolled prayerfully 215 times in memory of the victims at the Kamloops Residential School and their families.
There will be no formal prayers, however, St. Alban's Church is inviting anyone who wishes to join in quiet and individual prayerful reflection to attend the memorial event.
"Stay ten minutes or stay 30 minutes. There are no expectations," Sheilagh Garrett of St. Alban's Church said.
"We also encourage anyone who would like to, to participate in ringing the bell. If people prefer, and time is limited, they may also bring their own lunch and sit in the courtyard."
The Monday, June 7 issue of the World-Spectator includes interviews with Chief Evan Taypotat of the Kahkewistahaw First Nation and Chief Cadmus Delorme of the Cowessess First Nation on their thoughts on the latest Residential School revelations, as well as a history of the Washakada Residential School, which was located at Elkhorn, Manitoba.
The June 14 issue will include an in-depth interview with a survivor of the Marieval Residential School, which was located east of Crooked Lake in the Qu'Appelle Valley.
