Mark your calendars for the 2014 Promotion Dinner. This is an annual fundraiser to cover operating costs for the relief sale so that everything raised at the sale can be forwarded to MCC.
We are pleased to announce that Eileen Henderson will be the guest speaker at this year's Annual Promotional Dinner. Eileen is the Restorative Justice Coordinator for Mennonite Central Committee Ontario. Restorative justice looks beyond a traditional view of justice, which tends to focus on who is guilty and what is their punishment, to who has been hurt and what are their needs? Victims, the larger community and offenders all factor into the work of restorative justice. Eileen will share stories of where she has seen hope and restoration through comforter knotting at Grand Valley Institution for women, in responding to the needs of seniors who have experienced elder abuse, and in walking with men and women returning to the community after incarceration. Eileen also sits on the board of directors for Missionary Kids Safety Net and Just.Equipping. We look forward to hearing Eileen speak about Finding God in unexpected places.
DATE: Monday, April 28, 2014 at 6:30pm
Tickets can be purchased at MCC Ontario, 50 Kent Ave., Suite 203, Kitchener
