About the event

The St. Thomas Restoration Committee is hosting a ceremony to mark the Šawelihcikewin Covenant for the Co-Management of Old St. Thomas Church, an agreement between MRHHA and the Diocese of Moosonee that transfers management and control of the building to the community under specific conditions to ensure respect for the building and its heritage as a site made sacred by those who have sustained it over generations, many of whom are buried in the adjacent cemetery. This ceremony will take place during the annual interdenominational Memorial Service held at the cemetery. It is being planned in partnership with the organizers of the Memorial Service.
