LISTENING TO INDIGENOUS VOICES
Increase your understanding of Indigenous history and culture through our Listening to Indigenous Voices study group. Now in its third season, this study group uses the Jesuit Forum guidebook, Listening to Indigenous Voices – A Dialogue Guide on Justice and Right Relationships, complied by many authors, most of whom are Indigenous, to deepen our understanding of our settler relationship with Indigenous peoples and to explore Indigenous cultures and histories. The study group will meet on Zoom every second Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. starting on Oct. 4 and ending on Feb. 28. (No session on December 27). The guidebook can be purchased online from Novalis or the Jesuit Forum. We also have limited copies for purchase at the parish office for $25. The facilitators, Maureen Cerroni and Anthony Zoccoli, are settlers engaging in efforts for truth and reconciliation. For more information, please see the poster To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
