Recent reports have given the Maritime Provinces a failing grade in the fight against poverty. The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been observed on October 17since 1993, when the United Nations General Assembly designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries. This day can be an opportunity to draw attention to the call for a Guaranteed Livable Income. The UCC website also includes resources created for this purpose.

Care and support for one another in Community: People of all ages and walks of life are invited to gather for a time of silent prayer in the sanctuary two evenings a month on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 7pm for approximately 15-20 minutes. This offers an intentional way to hold in prayer all those persons in our lives for whom we have care and concern. And an understanding that we all carry some heaviness in our lives. All are welcome.
