Helen E at TRC walk-800On May 31, Helen Epp, with daughters Esther Epp-Tiessen and Marlene Epp, joined some 7,000 others in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission walk in Ottawa. Helen writes: “The five-kilometre walk started in Gatineau, Quebec, and continued past Parliament Hill to City Hall. MCC Ottawa Office had made placards carrying the MCC logo, which some of us carried along the route. It was really invigorating and fun, with some people singing and indigenous people singing and drum-ming.” Mennonite Church Canada and various MCC personnel from the provinces were represented in the walk. Also joining the walk was a large contingent from KAIROS (Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives) — MCC is one of the 11 member organizations and churches that make up KAIROS.
