Refugee News

Crossroads is a partner in the West Kingston Refugee Partnership (WKRP). Our church is working with the Islamic Centre of Kingston and Edith Rankin, St. Andrew's-by-the-lake, Cataraqui, and Cooke's-Portsmouth United Churches to help bring at least two refugee families to Kingston and to raise funds and provide support as they establish themselves in our community.
June 2016 update: The first refugee family has now arrived in Kingston.

About the season: Ordinary Time
When: From the Sunday after Pentecost (May 15 in 2016) until the beginning of Advent (Nov 27 in 2016).
Colour: Green
About the Date: "Ordinary" comes from "ordinal" which means "counting" as we count the Sundays to Advent
Meaning: As crops slowly grow in the fields, this time between the major holy seasons in the church provides a time in which we can grow our faith, and then turn our focus to the mission of the church in the world.
