Chinook Winds’ Indigenous Minister Rev. Tony Snow will be facilitating several in-person and online events during Lent throughout Chinook Winds. Below are a few dates of events that are being planned. Neighbouring congregations and individuals to the event locations are encouraged and invited to attend.
