Listening to Indigenous Voices: A dialogue guide on Justice and Right Relationships

(Jesuit Forum for Faith and Social Justice) - click here

Listening to Indigenous Voices – Small Group Book Study
Listening to Indigenous Voices is a resource that has been published by the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith and Justice that "...explores Indigenous worldviews, examines the history of colonization, and concludes with sessions on righting relationships, decolonization, and indigenization...Each session includes questions to guide sharing circles as well as curriculum ideas for use in secondary and post-secondary educational settings." (https://jesuitforum.ca/dialogue_guides/listening-to-indigenous-voices/)

Using this book as a guide, small groups of 5 to 8 participants led by lay-people would meet over Zoom for approximately 1 hour every two weeks for 11 sessions (4-5 sessions before Christmas, and then 5-6 sessions leading up to Ash Wednesday) to discuss the content of this resource. The cost of this program would be the cost of the books (maximum $26).
If you are interested in participating in a discussion group, please click here to fill out a short form expressing your interest. We will do our very best to accommodate everyone's availability, but we cannot make any guarantees.
For any questions, please contact Mireille Grenier by email at mgrenier@archsaintboniface.ca.
