I’ve been attending a bookstudy looking at Radical Gratitude by Mary Jo Leddy. I wanted to let you know that Mary Jo Leddy is going to be a guest speaker that’s coming to Calgary for a variety of workshops on March 1-3rd. I’m sure some of you are aware of Mary Joe Leddy, through some of the books that she has written. She is a theologian and social advocate and has been involved with immigrants and refugees at Toronto’s Romero House. She teaches theology at Regis College. She has received the Human Resources Award of the Canadian Counsel of Christians and Jews 1987, the Ontario Citizens Award 1993, and the Order of Canada 1996. Below is a list of her activities throughout the weekend if you’re interested in catching her speaking at any of the weekend events.
