Pray for Grassy Narrows’ community and forest. Pray that clearcut logging practices are abandoned permanently and that the Ontario government understands the environmental impact that this practice is having in the river system and the fish used by this First Nation community. 

Grassy Narrows 

Grassy Narrows First Nations, a community of about 1,500 near Kenora, is concerned that clearcut logging will increase mercury levels in local fish, which is a traditional dietary staple.

“Let’s hear it from Sky, with Earth joining in, and a huge round of applause from Sea. Let Wilderness turn cartwheels, animals, come dance, put every tree of the forest in the choir” (Psalm 26: 11-12)

Septermber Supper Fundraiser

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
