Integration, Transformation and Reconciliation: TRC Calls to Action and Laudato Si'
Priscilla Solomon - January 20, 2017
Using personal stories and experiences, allegory and imagery, Sr. Solomon will reflect on the calls to transformation and reconciliation among our peoples and with our natural world. She will reflect on how her personal integration of Anishinabek and Roman Catholic Spirituality enlightens her path to reconciliation. Sr. Solomon will invite listeners to use the transformative power of story and imagery to engage with others in creating a new reality in our country.
