Canadian Gathering

Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan
September 2004

We had a great weekend at our Get Together at Christopher Lake in Saskatchewan Canada.

Thanks to Colleen & Mark Stoecklein and Alison & Marcel de la Gorgendiere for the planning.

There was a children’s program, which left the parents free to attend our discussion groups.

Our discussion focused on Sacramental sharing, marriage prep, confirmation and the document that was prepared for the Rome conference. Our discussion was fruitful in that it let all of us share our heart knowledge as well as head knowledge.

The evenings were filled with singing around the fireplace.

Shirley & Bernie led a ‘stepping stone craft’ Saturday afternoon.

Fr. Luc Gaudet said Saturday evening Catholic Mass and Rev Amanda Currie (Presbyterian) led the Sunday morning service. Before Fr. Luc said Mass he brought greetings from the Prince Albert Bishop Blaise Morand. He (the Bishop) also mentioned we should have more of these (referring to Interchurch Gatherings).

Thanks to the family groups that attended, 
3 from Calgary, 1 from Regina, 1 from Winnipeg , 5 from Saskatoon and 
Jane Smith from England.

We all had a great weekend.
