Aboriginal communities of faith can work with the Aboriginal Ministries Circle to
- develop a vision and a communication plan
- identify building needs
- upgrade their physical property
To participate, please contact:
Programs are identified and created for youth who are or are not directly involved in communities of faith. Successful programs involving both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth have been held in Winnipeg (Neechi) and at Five Oaks (Wampum). Read a Letter to Future Wampum Participants (on the Five Oaks site) written by youth in the 2014 program.
Future events are under discussion. To get involved, please contact:
The Circle maintains a partnership with the Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre in Beasejour, Manitoba. This culturally based ministry training program, located on 36 acres of wooded parkland beside the Brokenhead River, prepares Aboriginal people in lay and ordered ministry and provides cross-cultural and spiritual awareness for the larger community.
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
Since the time of the Sisters in Spirit program, work continues to support the inquiry into the deaths and disappearance of many Indigenous women and girls across the country. Visit the Native Women’s Association of Canada website to download a fact sheet on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
The Aboriginal Ministries Circle also manages several community funds that support Indigenous initiatives.
