Monday, 9 June, we visited Edmonton City hall and met Mayor Don Iveson, who graciously welcomed our visitors to the city. While at the City Hall we also visited the Kids in the Hall cafe and learned about this social enterprise and its impact on its young employees.
Next, we visited St Faith's and St Stephen's parishes and Prayerworks Common, hearing about some of the programmes these two parishes offer in one of the more disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Edmonton.
Later, we visited the Inner City Pastoral Ministry and the Bissell Centre, where the Rev Rick Chapman explained his work with impoverished and homeless clients.
The day ended at the Royal Alberta Museum, where our guests learned about the flora and fauna of Alberta, as well as about the indigenous people of the province.
