Remembering the Children

In the upper entryway, you can see a display of an orange t-shirt that will be there for 225 days. It is in honor and memory of the children of the First Nations who never returned from residential boarding schools. Sunday School is learning about this and how to discuss it, and we encourage adults of the MCC to do that as well. Why an orange t-shirt? To learn more, click here. If you’d like to buy orange t-shirts and support indigenous designers, you can find some here.
