Lecture Series – Listening to Indigenous Voices

Decorative ImageThe Jesuit Form for Social Faith and Justice has recently published a dialogue guide, in partnership with Indigenous elders and knowledge keepers, ‘Listening to Indigenous Voices: A Dialogue Guide on Justice and Right Relationships’. It has been published by Novalis Publishing as a response to ‘Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’ Calls to Action.

St. Peter’s Parish has invited Elder Bob Philips and Fr. Trevor Scott s.j., of the Jesuit Forum, to introduce our parish community, and those of our wider community who might be interested, to this dialogue process.

Through a selection of 4 Sessions from ‘Listening to Indigenous Voices’ interested participants will meet once a month to reflect upon past wrongs that have been inflicted upon Indigenous communities, and how we can move towards right relationships with Indigenous peoples as a society and as a church community based upon a renewed respect and celebration. These encounters will take place on the evenings of Thursdays, September 15, October 13 (Rescheduled),November 10, December 8 and January 12 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in the parish auditorium.

There will be a registration fee of $45.00 for those who attend. This includes the purchase of the book “Listening to Indigenous Voices.” For those who already have the book, registration is $25.00. The registration fee will be waived for any who cannot afford to pay it. Please register in advance with the St. Peter’s parish office: 416-534-4219. Registration is limited to 40 persons. Please note, that our parish hall is not wheel chair accessible. For more information on the guide itself visit: LTIV.ca
