Celebration of Welcome

For Newcomers

During the Oasis 2017 Saturday morning rally, First Nations leaders will welcome newcomer families (former refugees) to the land on which Canada thrives. This will take place at Crandall University in Moncton, NB on Saturday, August 26th beginning at 10:30am. Following the Celebration of Welcome, you and your newcomer family are invited to join us for lunch.

Lunch – Following the Welcome Celebration, you and your newcomer family are invited to join us for lunch. Lunch will be halal (likely pizza with veggies and fruit). Sorry but we will not be able to accommodate dietary restrictions for this event.
The lunch is restricted to the newcomer families that have been sponsored through our organization and their sponsoring group representatives. It is not open to all Oasis 2017 attendees.
This lunch is free of cost to you but we need to know how many to prepare for. Please register by July 28th!

Photos – Whether you can come or not, we want pictures of your families. Please email a family photo of your newcomer family to Paul Carline – paul.carline@baptist-atlantic.ca. We want to be able to scroll family photos on the screen at our event for all families.
