Remembrance Day is about remembering civilians and military personnel whose efforts and sacrifice made it possible for us to experience the peace we have in our country and to live the values we cherish. We are grateful. Many of us choose to wear artificial poppies in these days before November 11; red poppies symbolize the memory of those who died and white poppies stand for non-military conflict interventions. On November 11, whether we pray in groups with other Canadians or by ourselves, we remember.
On Sunday, November 6, the Liturgy Committee of the Sisters of Providence Motherhouse, Kingston, presented a Workshop entitled, “What It Means to Be An Inclusive Church.” It was attended by the sisters of the city, associates and members of the Sunday assembly.
