This Directions in Aboriginal Ministry gathering will include materials presented on aboriginal ministry, spirituality and Aboriginal issues. The conference will allow participants to experience and reflect on the faith life and ritual celebrations of Aboriginal people in the context of the sacraments of the Church. They will explore our faith as it has developed through the lives of our Aboriginal faith ancestors in the context of ritual, ceremony and sacraments. We will explore how their understandings of faith, service, and reconciliation are rooted in their Aboriginal cultural heritage and how that cultural heritage enhances and informs the way they live their Catholic faith.

Denece Billsberger, SCJ; Archbishop Emeritus Sylvain Lavoie, OMI; Bob McKeon; Maggie Hodgson; Harry Lafond; Priscilla Solomon, CSJ; Eva Solomon, CSJ; local First Nations Elders and other guest presenters.
