A group of Dominican-Canadians participated recently in the United Nations celebration of the Prayer Palace Church in Toronto (1111 Arrow Road). The Nature Isle was one of 29 nations recognized and celebrated by the congregants. The Dominica delegation was led by Janet Prosper and Sarah Ramkissoon who are of Dominican origin, while the rest of the group consisted of children and friends of Dominicans.
The Dominica segment of the United Nations celebration featured a promotional video showcasing the beauty of the Nature Isle, a parade in wob dwiyet and creole wear by the group, and a stage presentation. Members of the group shared interesting facts about Dominica with the congregation, and read Bible verses relevant to the islands as God’s creation. The United Nations celebration is an annual event.
