Sacraments of Initiation, South Indian Lake, May 13, 2011

The group of newly initiated candidates at South Indian Lake, prepared by Bro. Tom Novak OMI with the help of local leaders. During his last stay here, Bro. Tom gand I ave the Christopher Leadership Course with the help of Troy Paul of Thompson and Sr. Margaret Sadler from Lynn Lake.
A family gathering at one of the tables after the celebration. South Indian Lake is good at putting on pot luck suppers after the Eucharist each month that Fr. Eugene Whyte comes to celebrate with them.
Bro. Tom Novak OMI, is ministering in our archdiocese part time as a resource person. He goes into a community for a period of time with the aim of supporting the local leaders and facilitating catechesis, sacramental preparation and ministry training. Tom is also revising the Cree hymn book that we are hoping to reprint soon. Twice now we have offered the Christopher Leadership Course in the community where Tom was ministering, as a way of empowering lay leaders.
