Saskatchewan Conference encourages congregations, pastoral charges and presbyteries to include two acknowledgements at the beginning of their meetings/worship services.
The first acknowledgement should be regarding the traditional territories and treaty land that we are situated on. To facilitate that we have included a map to help determine your location in relationship to the Treaties Areas . For information about the language group, which will give you whose traditional territory you live on, please check out one of these links:
Saskatchewan Indian Cultural Centre (maps coming soon to this site)
Saskatchewan GenWeb (please scoll down to the Aboriginal – First Nations – Native section)
The other acknowledgement is around being an Affirming Conference. The following is included in the minutes of Conference Executive minutes:
And so we also acknowledge that Saskatchewan Conference is an Affirming Conference of The United Church of Canada as one that embraces diversity and strives to include and be a safe place for all people regardless of age, gender, race, culture, education, ability, economic status, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Please feel free to contact the Conference Office, at 306-721-3311 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
