Water“First Nations communities across Turtle Island stand at the forefrontof protecting the sacred watersheds, lands, and wildlife.

This January 2014, we will come together as First Nations People and Allies to take time apart in a sacred vigil to celebrate and honor the waters: the womb of creation and all she provides us. We stand apart together also to lament the destruction of the watersheds from unfettered unconventional fossil fueldevelopment and resource extraction.Together we will take time to deepen in faith our commitment to be Keepers of the waters.

Please join us on January 15, 2014 at 6:30 at the Church of theHoly Trinity as we celebrate together in traditional First Nations and Eastern Christian practices:“Keepers of the Water: A Vigil of Lament and Celebration.”
