On October 7, 2023 Hamas militants launched a devastating assault on Israel erupting into the most severe Palestinian-Israeli conflict seen in decades. Once again the world has been drawn into the aching question; will these people ever know a just and peaceful coexistence?

Even as one considers that far away tragedy, Canada continues to awaken to the colonial harms enacted in its own not-so-recent past; a nationalism built on the suppression of an Indigenous population.

The work of healing histories and peace-making is a global imperative being tested on many fronts, not least of all in Canada of making peace with the planet and peace-making with the peoples of our First Nations.

Canon Dr. Richard LeSueur and Kerry Baisley (biographies to the left), bring a program that will focus on the quest for peace as it relates to the current crisis in Israel-Palestine and in the quest to heal the residues of history with our indigenous peoples.
