Into the light.

Embracing Light from the Darkness, a national photographic essay project launched in the Anglican diocese of British Columbia, invites Canadians to express in visual images how the legacy of the Indian Residential Schools can be "healed, reconciled and restored." "Many of life's deepest sorrows and greatest triumphs evade expression through words," said Mary Rogers, choir director of the Victoria-based Bishop's Gospel Choir of British Columbia, which initiated the project.

Canadians also are invited to donate to other Bishop's Gospel Choir initiatives: the Aboriginal Bursary and the First Nations Computer Technology Fund. The fund provides laptop computers and printers to post-secondary students who are residents of the diocese of British Columbia and in financial need.
