November 2 the Western Intercultural  Ministry Network held a workshop and its annual general meeting, bringing us together in community, learning, and storytelling at the end of another strange COVID year.

See the workshop and AGM presentation here (PowerPoint) and the draft minutes here. In 2022 the Network plans to continue its Coffee-Chai intercultural learning spaces; will look at how to connect with the United Church’s anti-racism commitments; and will consider whether its usual Fall gathering can finally go back to in-person gatherings or will need to be online.

Many thanks especially to chairpeople Deborah Richards and Kurt Katzmar; secretary Kathy Yamashita; elder Kay Quon; and all the Executive members who steer the canoe. Here in Northern Spirit, Kurt Katzmar and Chelsea Masterman are our representatives to the WIMN Executive. Please contact them through Regional Council staff support Julie Graham, in order to protect their privacy. Your involvement with this diverse network is always most welcome!
