To Inform, Encourage and Heal
On-line Learning Offered Through Dayton University (VLCFF) – The Diocese of Hamilton is proud to offer a new adult learning opportunity through our partnership with Dayton University. To Inform, Encourage and Heal is a four-week online seminar in which you can engage in the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Following the course texts and online discussions, you will gain a greater understanding of your role as a Catholic Christian in the work of reconciliation and solidarity in support of Indigenous communities. Both reflection and practical application of learning will be high priorities over the four weeks seminar.
