Leap Manifesto

Development and Peace has signed onto a political manifesto that reflects in part the teaching of Pope Francis in a call for drastic change in environmental policy.


Understanding sought

A range of community partners, including the Saskatoon Diocesan Council for Truth and Reconciliation, are working to come up with a concrete way of addressing divisions and bringing about understanding and reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous people.

In the past 40 years, more and more lay people have been following this regimen of prayer and contemplation. St. Ignatius Parish in Winnipeg has provided a means of doing them over the course of six or seven months.
