The Weyburn Ministerial Association met Wednesday, September 6th for their first meeting of the new season.

The first point of business for this meeting of Weyburn Pastors and Clergy members was to pass a motion to give $1500 to Community Low Income Centre.

"At the meeting one of the things we do is we try to help member organisations that contribute to organisations to our community," said Cameron Weber, President of Weyburn Ministerial Association.

Community Low Income Centre had asked for funding support at the June meeting where the motion to give $1500 had been made.

It is the policy of the WMA to wait until the next months meeting to vote on a motion to give time for members to think about the best course of action to take.

"We're depositing that check today," said Fred Sandeski, Director of Community Low Income Centre, who received the cheque Monday night at the CLIC Board meeting.

"It was heaven sent, it really was. Things were getting pretty tight so it was really well received," Sandeski added.

WMA meet together to find ways for the different churches to work together too.

"We support different initiatives in Weyburn such as the Blanket Exercise coming up. It's dealing with reconciliation between first nations people and the churches and being ministers of Jesus Christ, we are in the ministry of reconciliation."

Weber also said how the Ministerial does services for the Nursing homes.

"We set up a schedule so that the different churches can go and do services and minister to the needs of the seniors who are in these homes."

In 2011, during a flood which affected many Weyburn homes, Weyburn Ministerial Churches worked together to help those in need of assistance.

"A number of years ago, we haven't updated it recently but we were part of the disaster assistance program for Weyburn and area. Some of the different churches that have auditoriums made them available for people to use them as shelters. We would have counselling and different things, we would provide in a case of disaster," said Weber.

The Weyburn Ministerial Association meet on the first Wednesday of each month from September to June. The next meeting is October 4th.
