In September of 2020 we established a Mercy & Justice ministry to coordinate all local Yellowknife and NWT efforts toward Mercy and Justice. A budgeted amount from our monthly income is allocated toward issues of Mercy & Justice. Our aim is to assist in meeting the needs of the ‘least of these my brothers and sisters’ (Mt 25) as the Holy Spirit makes us aware of needs that touch our community and beyond. Currently we are sponsoring two young Eritreans facing danger in Ethiopia. A process is underway to bring them into Canada as incoming refugees. During lockdown we have supplied one of the poorer school communities in Yellowknife with necessary writing materials. A task team of younger adults is discussing Mercy & Justice and guiding us as it relates to creating an increasingly sustainable effort toward Mercy & Justice.
