Diversity, a Workshop on Anti-Racism

All Saints Anglican hosts workshop on anti-racism Saturday, April 11.

Earlier in the year, a couple of parishioners from All Saints Anglican attended a workshop on anti-racism presented by a team of clergy and lay people from Vancouver. The workshop included talks, interaction, and a documentary that was emotionally charged. It is a mandate of the Anglican Church to share how we can live in diverse communities and eliminate racism, whether intended or not. In the global village we are called to treat all with dignity and respect irrespective of race or creed.

It was such an interesting day that we are bringing the team to Agassiz to offer the same workshop on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at All Saints Anglican, 6904 Lougheed Hwy. The workshop is free, and a morning snack of beverages and muffins, along with a light lunch will be provided at a cost of $10. Those wishing to attend are asked to phone All Saints at 604-796-3553 and leave a message along with their name and phone number, or email allsaints-agassiz@shaw.ca . Registration  is limited to 25 people and closes on the morning of April 5.
