Folks of different beliefs and denominations all came together as one to support a great cause and enjoy some music.
The Common Vision Concert was held on Sunday at the St. Paul's United Church, and raised over three thousand dollars for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
"We had 45 people that were performing as musicians and singers, and we had a total of 89 who attended the show. So, overall there was 134 people there, which was a great turnout considering the weather was a bit chilly," stated organizer Heather Vermeersch.
"Our donations that we received amounted to $3,860, which we were very excited about."
While that in and of itself is no small sum, it's only the half of what will actually go to support the cause.
"That amount of money will be matched by the Government of Canada, so we will be sending that off. We also collected 45 of the postcards that were attached to the programs, just asking the Minister of International Development to address the issue of world hunger," Vermeersch said.
The music was mostly composed of a variety of hymns with wide ranging themes relating to church, faith, love and community, and included content from Saskatchewan hymn writer Walter Farquharson.
"Basically, that was the theme of the Concert: we may come from different faiths, but we have one vision, and that's to help other people."
"We had a great afternoon. We had some beautiful soloists, and it was nice to see a children's choir that was made up of local children. It was just a great day, and we really appreciated people supporting and coming out," Vermeersch concluded.
