This past summer, the Canadian Canoe Pilgrimage took place, bringing together different cultures that form the fabric of Canada today. It provided an experience of encounter that encouraged dialogue, reconciliation and friendship, and immersed in the Calls-to-Action outlined in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
CBC’s The National reported on this venture on September 4, 2017…watch it here.
Dan Leckman, SJ, one of the Jesuits who works here at Loyola House as a spiritual director, participated in the Canoe Pilgrimage. He has many stories to tell and learned much about himself; a worthwhile experience.
