Register for Covenant Chain Link and other KAIROS Fall Gatherings
You read about the spring regional gatherings in the coastal regions. Now, if you are in one of the three central regions, plan to attend a fall regional KAIROS gathering.
The Northwestern Ontario and Manitoba (formerly Cambrian-Agassiz) KAIROS Region will gather in Winnipeg on October 18-19 under the theme: Walking Softly! Doctrine of Discovery: Impacts on Land, Food and Relations.
The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Region, which covers Ontario and Quebec (Anglophone), will gather at the tenth annual Covenant Chain Link event in Ottawa, October 18-19. Dr. Niigaan Sinclair will be the keynote speaker at Covenant Chain Link. A KAIROS network gathering will follow on Sunday, October 20 in the morning. Limited free rides to Ottawa from across the region will be available to those new to KAIROS or under the age of 30.
ROJEP (Réseau œcuménique justice écologie et paix / Ecumenical Network for Justice, Ecology and Peace), KAIROS’ Francophone partner in Quebec and other members will host an afternoon community forum in Montreal on October 23. An evening with the KAIROS Steering Committee will follow. This will be a bi-lingual event. Come out to support, and network with, KAIROS’ Quebec partners.
The Prairies North Region which covers all of Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories will gather at King’s College in Edmonton on November 22-23 with the theme Alliances for Change: Climate Justice, Migration and Reconciliation. Friday evening will include a panel of local experts on Alliances for Change. Saturday will feature a workshop on Power, Privilege and Allyship by KAIROS staff.
Regional gatherings are open to everyone. They are a mix of education, inspiration and networking. Meeting other concerned citizens and activists face-to-face is a great way to learn more about the issues you care about and to stay motivated and focused on the changes you want to see in the world. Come be part of the movement!
