This July 1st was like no other right across Canada. This was no different for us at St. Philip’s Anglican Church in Milford. We are proud of our Canadian heritage, at the same time are heartbroken by the revelations of the unmarked graves of Indigenous children on Residential School sites. And we know there is more heart ache to come.
So at St. Philip’s we started with what we know – we pray. We pray to acknowledge the wrongs of the past, and to listen. To listen to the hard truths of our Canadian past. To listen for the guidance from our Lord, on what our next steps should be.
We were so very glad to have members of our Prince Edward County community join us in prayer. Here are some photos:
