About: The Secret is a best-selling self-help book by Rhonda Byrne, based on the earlier film of the same name. It is based on the ‘law of attraction’ which claims that thoughts can change the world directly.

The goal is to come away with a greater knowledge on the principles of faith and how they can enrich our lives.

McDougall is a Breastfeeding Friendly Church

McDougall United Church became Edmonton’s first official Breastfeeding Friendly church in 2013. In keeping with being an inclusive and welcoming church, mothers will not be asked to move or cover while breastfeeding. They are welcome to breastfeed anytime, anywhere at McDougall.

Business and public places in Edmonton who have adopted the Edmonton Capital Region Breastfeeding Friendly Policy for Businesses and Public Places are eligible to become official Breastfeeding Friendly Community Partners. Community Partners train their staff and volunteers to display a welcoming attitude towards Breastfeeding logobreastfeeding mothers and children, not ask them to cover up or relocate, and to offer appropriate private facilities for women who ask. Training also helps staff handle other patron complaints about breastfeeding.

Community Partners display the International Breastfeeding Symbol. This lets Edmonton’s breastfeeding families know the facility is a safe and friendly space.
