Remembrance Day 2016

Barbara Prior, CND

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.

The presenter, Sr. Frances O'Brien, SP, opened the session with an outline of Diarmuid O'Murchu's five Principles for an Inclusive Church.

Through a challenging and stimulating process, each person was engaged in creatively expressing his or her impression of inclusivity. Moving forward, we shared our ideas of how we are already practicing inclusivity. Then we moved on to consider how we can improve our outreach and make liturgies more meaningful. Much discussion and many good ideas surfaced. Finally, we were invited to make a personal commitment to put into practice the fruits of the day.
