Mary has been a member of KAIROS Halifax for several years and a member of the regional Coordinating Committee (CoCo) for the past three. Her interest in working among friends in interfaith communities, in justice for all life, human rights and environmental responsibility, plus an earlier involvement with Ten Days for World Development (Ten Days for Global Justice), led her to being an active member of KAIROS.

Paying attention and being Grateful to all that is around me is my daily goal – I love growing food – keeping water for the commons and justice for our indigenous brothers and sisters at home and abroad are on my list of passions. KAIROS ties together many of the issues that we know are part of the web of life and of living in right relationship, as a Christian, I STAND With KAIROS.

The ebb and flow of rustling leaves reminds me of the ebb and flow of reconciliation and justice spirited faithfulness. For me when I listened to the experiences of Indigenous peoples at the Saskatoon TRC, my understanding of justice took me on a new path. It started with solidarity engagements with Indigenous peoples -the ‘Sister Journey’ canoe trip on the Churchill River, on to Guatemala, and then on to the Philippines. Pilgrimage and relationships of justice, peace, transformation, healing and renewal of all creation.

Elaine Gareau (elaine.gareau@rogers.com)

Greetings! I am originally from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan but have lived in Ontario for 25 years.  I work full-time as a freelance editor and translator in Barrie. Working from home makes it easier for me to pursue my passion for social justice. I enjoy working with like-minded people in Simcoe County KAIROS, the Barrie Action Circle for Amnesty International, and Développement et Paix in my home parish.

Betty Anne Platt (plattbawhitby@gmail.com)

I have a long association with KAIROS and Development and Peace in the Durham Region where I live. Retired from the health care field, my spouse and I spend our time with family, supporting educational projects through our foundation and of course working with KAIROS. Over the years, I have met many wonderful people who share my passion for social justice and I enjoy working with the varied and committed group that makes up the KAIROS Network.
