Tkaronto is the Mohawk word for Toronto. While in Toronto, Ray Morin, a Metis cartoonist from Vancouver, meets Jolene Peltier who is an Anishinaabe artist from Los Angeles. Their encounter surfaces struggles for both of them as creative professionals living in urban settings, their connection with their ancestral heritage, as well as questions of language, religion, spirituality, and relationships.
On the following Sunday, we will open ourselves to the sacred teachings from the Mohawk as well as other teachings from the First Peoples of Kanada.
Our annual Lenten journey includes mid-week opportunities of joining together to watch six films. The themes of these movies will resonate with the themes explored each Sunday.
We invite you to gather in the chapel between 6:45 and 7:15 to greet one another, have a snack, and get ready. The movie will begin at 7:15 sharp. Following the movie, there is an optional facilitated conversation.
