People across the world pray for NAN youth
Youth take part in a candlelight prayer during the evening of Nov. 14 at the Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School in Thunder Bay.
The evening was the culmination of the day’s events during the NAN Day of Prayer, which began with a prayer breakfast followed by a reflective service at the NAN office.
NAN Grand Chief Harvey Yesno said people from all over the world including the U.S., China, Korea, Germany, and places in South America, have offered their prayers for the NAN youth.
Yesno said some communities such as Attawapiskat held their own day of prayer in unity with NAN.
To address the high suicide rates among youth, the NAN Day of Prayer was declared in 2002 to set aside a day each year to support community healing.
