Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and the Multicultural Association of Fredericton celebrated World Refugee Day, Saturday, June 20, with a family Walk with Refugees.
Please join a family Walk with Refugees starting from the Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church lawn (512 Charlotte St.) at 1:30pm on World Refugee Day, Saturday, June 20. The 1-hour walk, organized in partnership with the Multicultural Association of Fredericton, will pass by houses built by Fredericton’s first wave of refugees, through the early cemetery and return to the church. Participants will learn how important refugees have been and how they continue to enrich our community. On return to Saint. Andrew’s church, we will share lemonade on the lawn. Rain date is Saturday, July 4th.

On June 7, 2015, we celebrated 190 years of a Presbyterian presence within the city of Fredericton.
The Rev. Jeff Murray, Moderator of the Atlantic Synod and Minister of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Sackville, N.B., was the guest preacher.
