Research Participants Wanted You are invited to participate in a research study concerning how Anishinaabe citizenship is conceptualized at Fort William First Nation. Damien Lee is currently seeking families that have experience in adopting people, and who are willing to share these stories. This research is a part of Damien’s PhD dissertation research. He is focusing on stories about Anishinaabe custom adoption not only because he belongs with Fort William First Nation through customary adoption, but also because he believes stories about adoption hold a great deal of information about what it means to make citizens of the larger Anishinaabe nation in ways that align with Anishinaabe law. For clarity, this research project is not related to Fort William First Nation’s current efforts to renew its band membership code. If you are interested in participating in this research project, please email or call Damien at: Email: Phone:

This research is being completed after receiving permission from the University of Manitoba Joint-Faculty Research Ethics Board, and with the support of Damien Lee’s dissertation committee through the Department of Native Studies, University of Manitoba.

St. Anne's Parish Bulletin - 25th Sunday Ordinary - Sept. 20, 2015 1st Reading: Wisdom 2:12, 17-20. This tells how the godless plot to do away with the just man, the man of God, because his blameless life has become a reproach to them. 2nd Reading: James 3:16-4:3. Jealousy, ambition, and self-seeking lead to disharmony and fighting. Gentleness, reasonableness, and mercy lead to peace. Gospel: Mark 9:30-37. The Master had been telling his apostles that he must soon suffer bitter humiliation and death, but they have not grasped what he was saying. Instead they get involved in petty squabbling over who is the greatest among them.

Gospel Challenge: Who Are The Righteous? In a world rife with jealousy and selfish ambition righteousness is not a quality that is highly prized. We want people to be honest, at least in their dealings with us, but we are more apt to applaud those who are clever. We commend people who know how to make a good deal, who know how to get ahead, who know how to strike it rich. We extol the beautiful, the strong, the self-assured, those who have made a name for themselves, those who entertain us. We encourage people to be ambitious, to think of themselves first. Seldom is one's popularity based on righteousness. On the other hand, righteousness is one of the pillars upon which the reign of God is established. Those who would enter that reign must be gentle and merciful, faithful and sincere. They must be lovers of peace. The righteous must be willing to take the last place, to be the servant of all.
