Immanuel’s Chokecherry Harvest An Act of Reconciliation and Thanksgiving


Do you remember back in the spring of 2014 when parishes around the diocese planted chokecherry trees? At the recommendation of Indigenous elders, Bishop Jane Alexander arranged for each parish to receive a tree. These young trees were/are a sign of reconciliation; we are dedicating ourselves as followers of Jesus to making right our relationship with the Indigenous peoples of the land.

The tree planted at Immanuel, Wetaskiwin has grown to over 10 ft. tall and was laden with chokecherries this summer.   Check out this link for more of the story and photos:
