When someone asks you where you are from, do you find yourself hesitating before you answer?
Whether our roots are First Nations, French, English or more recent immigrants, today’s multicultural society calls for a better understanding of others and of ourselves.
In this retreat, we will journey together, discern and define what is home.
This retreat will be conducted in French and English. Each retreatant will be able to speak in either language and should have an understanding of both languages.
