All are welcome to join the 11am service at All Saints' Anglican Cathedral on September 25, to hear guest-speaker Fr. Michael Lapsley SSM. (Fr. Lapsley is pictured here speaking at the cathedral during his visit in 2019.)
Fr. Lapsley is the Canon for Healing and Reconciliation for the Diocese of Edmonton. Part of the resistance to the apartheid system in South Africa through the 70's and 80's, Fr. Lapsley lost both hands and an eye in a letter bomb attack in Zimbabwe in 1990. He later founded the Institute for Healing of Memories (IHOM) in 1998 to work in parallel with South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The IHOM now works around the world to facilitate healing and reconciliation through a community-based method to discover our common humanity and address wounds and traumas.
