The Work Continues

At last October’s learning circle of Social Ministry Year, students took part in “The Blanket Exercise” – an educational process designed by Kairos to illustrate the impact of colonialism, disease, residential schools, and social policies on First Nations peoples and territories.

Since then, some of our students have been involved in the activity in their home communities and field placement settings.

Here’s CCS student Ian McLean getting reading for the exercise with a group at Kamloops United Church.
