Update on Oxford House, Manitoba
Many of you will remember that Oxford House was badly hit with COVID. Rev John Thompson and his wife, Elenore were both flown to Winnipeg for treatment. I am happy to report they are now both back home and John says that most of the community has now been vaccinated.
Last week to commemorate the tragedy in Kamloops, they built a sacred fire at sunrise—5:00 AM– and kept it burning until sunset—10:00 PM. People in the community gathered around, smudged and prayed. At noon John rang the church bells 215 times. He has sent two photos—see below. John pointed out that the ice had recently left the lake!
