Lady of the Forest was built on the premise of spiritual healing.
The Lady of the Forest Catholic Church, a name given by Bishop Monroe of Kamloops, BC was built as a result of many Prayer meetings held by our Elders. The Elders concluded that the spiritual component of the Medicine Wheel or The Sacred Circle had been forgotten in their attempt to bring healing to the community. To bring healing to the community they decided to tear down the old church and build a new one for their people.
So we are pleased to announce that this past year a beautiful new log church was constructed in the village! It is a beautiful building inside and out, and has been a nice addition to the community. Nearly all of the community members identify themselves as Catholic, and nearly all are baptized Catholics. There are plans to have the Catholic priest from Quesnel visit the community about once a month.
