Mission Trip to Cumberland House, Saskatchewan-
A Mission Trip – 2017
Cumberland House, Saskatchewan
Settlement in northwestern Saskatchewan, Canada
Cumberland House is the oldest settler community in Saskatchewan. The population of Cumberland House consists of mostly ‘First Nations’ people, including Cree and Metis. It is located on Pine Island in the Saskatchewan River. Cumberland House was the Hudson’s Bay Company first inland fur-trading post, around which Saskatchewan’s oldest permanent settlement was founded in 1774. Adjacent to Cumberland House is the Cumberland House Cree Nation Reserve, part of the original Cumberland House settlement.
In July, a small group of young people from St. John’s Church, along with BC and St. Vincent’s, will offer a Vacation Bible School for the indigenous people of Cumberland House. This week-long mission trip is in a beautiful, but remote area of Canada. Accommodations are limited. We will be housed in a 2-bedroom, 1-bath home at Cumberland House. Sleeping bags will be necessary. We will bring provisions for our meals.
Adell Sheahan will be the group leader. We have been in contact with the youth ministry coordinator in Prince Albert who serves four Episcopal churches in the area. Fr. Mike has been most helpful with the details. The church we will be serving in Cumberland House is The Church of the Good Shepherd.
The cost of the trip will be approximately $1200 – $1500 (we are unable to be specific until airfare is confirmed). This includes airfare, hotel, food, van rental, insurance, gas, and materials for VBS.
July 15- Leave Savannah; Arrive Prince Albert, Saskatchewan; Overnight hotel stay in Prince Albert

July 17 – 21- VBS (other possible activities include canoeing, swimming, hiking)
