The CCS Open House last weekend was a warm gathering on a cold January day. Many friends of the Centre came and went through the afternoon – volunteers and board members, colleagues from other educational institutions and denominations, prospective students, alumni, and others.
As part of the gathering we took time to formally welcome David Lappano and Janet Ross to the CCS staff and to covenant with them for mutual support and encouragement. People were invited to offer words of welcome, and many spoke of grounding – in the diaconal tradition, in Winnipeg’s rich social history, and in the responsibilities of living on Treaty One territory.
A great way to start the year.
