Call to celebrate (over intercom)

Opening Hymn: Let There Be Peace

Let There Be Peace On Earth

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony!

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.

To take each moment and live each moment
In peace eternally

Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

Let it begin with me.

Welcome Greeting: Mr. Richardson

Jesus was kind and forgiving. He said good things about people and when they did not live accordingly to God’s will He reminded them about what they should be doing.

This is what a Peacemaker is, a person who tries to make the Creator’s will…be lived in the world.
Today we gather to remember all those who have dedicated their lives to bringing PEACE in the world. We remember not only the men and women of the world’s armed forces who have died…but also those whose lives were taken needlessly…and those who teach us the importance of having PEACE in the world.

Let us now begin…
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Hymn: Make Me A Channel of Your Peace (Prayer of St. Francis)

First Reading: Mr. Macleod
A reading from Psalm 119:2-8 :
How happy are those who respect His decrees and seek with Him their whole heart, and, doing no evil, walk in his ways! You yourself have made your values known to be faithfully kept. Oh! May my behaviour be constant in keeping your decrees. If I concentrate on your every commandment, I can never be put to shame. I thank you from an upright heart, schooled in your rules of righteousness. I mean to observe your statutes; never abandon me.

Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia

Gospel: Mr. Richardson

A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew 5:9
Glory to You Lord Jesus Christ

Happy are the poor in spirit; theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Happy are the gentle, they have the earth for their heritage. Happy are those who mourn, they shall be comforted. Happy are those who hunger and thirst for what is right; they shall be satisfied. Happy the merciful, they shall have mercy shown them. Happy the pure in heart, they shall see God. Happy the peacemakers, they shall be called children of God.

This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ

Response: Explanation of the life of Tommy Prince (Aboriginal War Veteran) and the contributions of Aboriginal Veterans and other Peacekeepers

Hymn: Peace Is Flowing

Peace is flowing like a river, Flowing out of you and me, Flowing out into the desert, Setting all the captives free.

Hope is flowing like a river...

Friendship's flowing like a river...

His LOVE is flowing like a river...

Alleluia, Alleluia...

Response: Creator, make us messengers of peace.

Power Point Presentation for Remembrance Day

Poem Presentation by the 3M Family and Miss Anderson (CREE reading)

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.
(Niyanan nakataskiyak) We are the Dead.
(moya kayas) Short days ago
(Nipimatisinan) We lived
(mosihtanan pitapan) felt Dawn
(Wahpatinan pahkisimohk ka wasiyak) saw sunset glow
(isakihayak isakihikawiyahk maka ikwa nipimisinan)
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
(ota Flanders Fields.) In Flander Fields

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch, be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.

Lest We Forget.

John McCrae

Closing Song: O Canada

O Canada

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love!
In all our sons command!

With glowing hearts
We see thee rise
The true north strong and free!

From far and wide
O Canada!
We stand on guard for thee!

God keep our land
Glorious and free!
O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee
O Canada!
We stand on guard for thee!
