During 10 weekend sessions(September – June), the participants will explore various issues of social justice including: 

  • International development, Economic Injustice & Peace

By visiting local service agencies, meeting with those who work in these social justice fields and being with the people they serve, participants will gain an opportunity to broaden their understanding of the issues at hand and become equipped with the skills to engage in service outreach. Participants will be invited to enter into a process of personal transformation. For More information click here or  contact Kate O'Gorman kogorman@rcdos.ca
