National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

On Sunday, Sept. 26th the faith community of Toronto was invited to celebrate the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation at St. Ann’s Parish, the “Native People’s Mission.” Fr. Wilson Andrade, CSC, presided at the Eucharist with Readings and Songs in a variety of languages: Cebuano, Ojibway and English. Sr. Petite Lao, RNDM, had prepared the liturgy and shared with the Assembly her reflection on the “Filipino Catholics and the Challenges of the Truth and Reconciliation Process in Canada.” This thesis project is ‘an action research’ that aims to explore with the Filipino Catholic Community in the Archdiocese of Toronto the shaping of a social justice education program that is culturally relevant. It is the hope that educational resources become more meaningful and relatable to them given that the history of Filipino immigration is relatively current.

Dinner Guests

We were excited to receive three of Libby’s colleagues from the University of Prince Edward Island for dinner on Thursday, Sept. 23. Two of whom are from India and one is from Nigeria.

It was an exhilarating conversation, and all were as eager to share as we were. As a congregation, we continue to deepen our call to live interculturality.

Libby really wants to end with: A Sikh, a Hindu and a Muslim walk into Raspberry Ave... and laughter, prayer and fellowship followed.
