Join the Edmonton diocese as we celebrate the return of Fr. Michael Lapsley SSM to the diocese this September as part of our continued commitment to reconciliation.
Fr. Michael Lapsley founded the Institute for Healing of Memories (IHOM) in 1998 to work in parallel with South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, providing a community-based method to discover our common humanity and address wounds and traumas. The IHOM now works around the globe to facilitate healing and reconciliation among people. For more about IHOM, please visit healing-memories.org.
Fr. Michael is also the Canon for Healing and Reconciliation for the Diocese of Edmonton. Over the past five years, he has visited our diocese several times and is working with a small team here to build local reconciliation initiatives.
We are planning several events with Fr. Michael this September. Please consider joining in:
