King's Interns Going to Dominican Republic and Ethiopia
 



King's Interns Nicole Bullock, Rykker Nyberg and Aaron Brown are travelling abroad on behalf of King's University College. For the third time, Dr. Thomas Tieku is travelling to Adis Ababa with 20 Political Science and Social Justice & Peace Studies students, as well as Associate Professor Dr. Erin Hannah. This year they will be joined by communications interns from Fanshawe College, Rykker Nyberg and Aaron Brown. The interns will be documenting the trip to share with the King's students. You can follow along on social media by visiting Facebook.com/KingsEthiopia and Twitter.com/KingsEthiopia.


SJPS (Social Justice and Peace Studies) 3376 is an experiential learning course which focuses on transnational citizenship a nd activism. This course builds on a program that was originally part of a campus ministry initiative to build solidarity with marginalized communities in the Dominican Republic. This year, 14 students from SJPS, CSI (Childhood and Social Institutions) and Social Work will travel to the DR for the Reading Week break for 8 intensive days of site visits and participation in community events designed to deepen students' understanding of impact of issues on local communities. King's work study student, Nicole Bullock, will be documenting the trip so students can follow along on Facebook.

Laudato Si Reflection Group


During the Lenten and Easter season we will have a unique opportunity to concretely respond to Pope's Francis invitation to explore more deeply our relationship with our sisters and brothers and the earth with whom we share this planet by reflecting on Pope Francis' Encyclical Laudato Si (Our Common Home). We will meet for an hour each during the Lenten Season (excluding reading week). A doodle poll will be used to determine the best day and time to meet. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity or  are interested in participating please contact Annette Donovan Panchaud at 519-963-1477 ex 4423 or at annette.donovanpanchaud@kings.uwo.ca.

February 24th at 3 p.m.- 4 p.m. in the Dante Lenardon Boardroom
Simple Living! So that others may simply live
Small group discussions will begin on campus dealing with the issue of simple living. The group will be using the guide Living with Limits, Living Well! which was prepared by the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith and Justice and published by CCCB Publications. This workbook will guide the group in engaging on the interconnectedness of poverty, inequality, globalization, ecology and spirituality. It is a great way to begin a spiritual reflection on Pope Francis' call to move away from a 'throwaway culture,' that is based on over-consumption. There will be opportunities for each of us to reflect on these implications for our own lives, share ideas and build solidarity among ourselves and with those directly impacted by these realities. The group will meet for 7 consecutive weeks beginning the week of February 1st and ending the week of March 20th. There will not be a meeting during reading week. Students will have the opportunity to choose a day and time that works for them. 

If you are interested in participating in these small group discussions, please contact Annette Donovan Panchaud in Campus Ministry, W149a, 519-433-3491 ext 4423 or annette.donovanpanchaud@kings.uwo.ca . Thank you for your commitment to living justly in the world!
