Ignatius Jesuit Centre “Voice” – September 2019

A seed grows but a tree falls with huge noise. Destruction has noise, but creation is quiet. This is the power of silence…grow silently.  -unknown

We grieve those who passed and are grateful for their contributions to the Centre.  Be sure to check out volunteer opportunities and upcoming events…one of which is challenging you to “find your ‘inner squirrel'”!  Enjoy this issue!

Jesuits, First Nations Participate in Reconciliation Canoe Trip

By | General News, Loyola House

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.
