"The Confession"

Hummingbird Ministries Presents "THE CONFESSION" @ Gilmore Park United Church 8060 NO. 1 ROAD, RICHMOND, BC @ 2 PM, SUNDAY, APRIL 24.
The Confession is a dramatic presentation of the 1994 Confession of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, for its part in the harm done to First Nations people through the “Indian Residential School System”. The actors (both Caucasian and First Nations) act out, without words, the acknowledgment made in the Confession, accompanied by music. Narrators read The Confession and the Canadian Apology. An invitation is extended to the audience to join the actors in a celebration dance, symbolic of hope for reconciliation. The Good Samaritan is read followed by a short reflection and healing music.
