Christmas Eve service

Our Christmas Eve offering this year goes to an MCC project called Youth H2O, the goal of which is to make clean water accessible to the young people of Pikangikum First Nation, an isolated community of less than 3,000 members. The young people in this community have been left without hope in the wake of multiple recent suicides. Youth H2O seeks to draw attention to the link between ongoing trauma and the lack of access to clean drink water. MCC invites us to work with them to install cisterns and holding tanks for clean water in Pikangikum.
