The St Matthias, Minocqua's Truth and Reconciliation Young Adult Ministry is one of 15 recipients of an Episcopal Church 2017 Young Adult and Campus Ministry grants. Young Adult and Campus Ministry Grants provide funding for dioceses, congregations, and community college/tribal college/university campuses that are doing or seek to do ministry with young adults on and off college campuses. The amount awarded was $5,000.
Beginning September 2017, St Matthias will launch Truth and Reconciliation for Healing and Mending Relationships. Through this program, the church will begin a process of building a relationship of truth, reconciliation, and healing with the Lac du Flambeau Indian community. This will be done by opening the doors and facilitating multiple Native focused healing services centered on themes of reconciliation. A safe space and an opportunity for attendees to speak their truths and heal from the effects of inter-generational trauma will be provided. Members of the Lac du Flambeau community will be intimately involved throughout the entire project. Learn more about St. Matthias at at stmatthiasminocqua.com.
