Rev. Debra's Weekly Message

Today, September 30th, is the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. I encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the impact of residential schools and perhaps learn something new about local Indigenous history. The City of Nanaimo and the Snuneymuxw First Nation are hosting a Day of Reconciliation at Muffeo Sutton Park between 10 and 2. I hope to see some of you there. Warmly, Rev. Debra - Sept. 30, 2021

Update on Building Re-opening Plans
Nanaimo Unitarians are following the Provincial Restart Program Guidelines and the latest updates. As of the changes announced August 24th, we are able to plan for the reopening of our building to members and renters in September.
The Sunday Services will continue to be online through September.
The planning team will use September to prepare for hybrid (meaning both in person and online) Sunday Services. Assuming there are no new provincial restrictions, the first hybrid Sunday Service will be October 3rd. There will be more detailed information in late September on attending services in person.
Whether you are vaccinated or not, we ask that you wear a mask in the building. And remember, please do not attend in-person if you are ill. There will be restrictions on capacity in the building. If you want to use a room for your group or committee meeting contact Lise for booking. She will inform you of the protocols. If you choose to meet in-person, you are asked to ensure that participants have the option to join via zoom as well.

Thank you for your patience as we move the community forward with respect and care.
