CRC JPIC National Gathering
The CRC is organising another JPIC National Gathering! Under the theme “All Is One: Weaving A Single Cloth For Justice,” this time it will gather from across Canada English-speaking women and men religious and their Associates and Collaborators in the pursuit of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation. It will be held June 2-4, 2015 at the Mary Ward Centre of Loretto College in Toronto.
Caroll Zinn, SSJ, Ph.D., will be the keynote speaker. Sister Zinn is the Past-President of the American LCWR (Leadership Conference of Women Religious). She has worked in grassroots-based international movements as consultant and facilitator and was the main representative for the Congregation of St. Joseph NGO at the United Nations.
The gathering will be facilitated by Dolores Hall, Ph.D. She is an experienced facilitator, spiritual director and teacher with a passion for justice. She is currently a member of the Providence Spirituality Centre Team in Kingston, Ontario.
We invite as many members of CRC JPIC networks as possible to attend, including French-speaking members who understand English. Associates and collaborators involved in the JPIC ministry or interested in the theme of the gathering are also invited.
In addition to the registration fee of $175 which includes 2 lunches, 1 dinner, breaks and a social, other costs include overnight accommodation for those who need it ($51 a night including breakfast) and any extra meals (meal tickets are available). The registration fee is partly intended also to help cover limited travel compensation for those at a distance. Note that the registration fee will go up to 200$ after April 2, 2015.
