Holy Name/Jesuit Forum - Register for Listening to Indigenous Voices Dialogue Circle series
February to May 2023
As mentioned earlier this month, the Holy Name parish Truth and Reconciliation group is pleased to host a Dialogue Circle series in partnership with the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith and Justice.
This is one way we are being invited to enter into the spirit of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action as a faith community.
Gathering Times and Sessions from “Listening To Indigenous Voices”
This series of small group dialogues will begin in February and meet once a month for a total of four gatherings.
Each session is stand-alone so it is not necessary to register for all four sessions.
We will meet in the basement hall after the 10 am Mass.
Each session will last approx 90 minutes.
There will be a separate version of each of these sessions geared to children aged 5-12 on each of the four Sundays. If you register your children, we strongly suggest that you also register for the adult sessions.
To register, please call or email the parish office at - HolyNameTO@archtoronto.org When you register, please indicate which session(s) you want to join. Participation will be limited to 20 people per session so don’t wait too long to register!
Listening to Indigenous Voices Guidebook
All dialogue circles will focus on a selection of sessions from the Jesuit Forum’s Listening to Indigenous Voices guidebook, published by Novalis Canada. You will need to purchase the guidebook in advance, to prepare for the sessions. The book costs $20.00. If this cost is a barrier to your participation, please pay what you can.
The books will be for sale after Saturday and Sunday masses for the next few weeks.
