Enjoy a weekend the aboriginal way

Conference will highlight Rose Prince Pilgrimage in Lejac

Spend a weekend embracing the aboriginal culture July 4-7 at the site of the historic Lejac Indian Residential School. Highlighting the annual Rose Prince pilgrimage, the Directions in Aboriginal Ministry Conference will give everyone the opportunity to gather with aboriginal faith leaders, elders, and ministry presenters.

The conference will begin with a supper hosted by Corpus Christi and St. Mark’s College students from Vancouver. A series of clan group gatherings, prayers, processions, and reflections will complete the memorable four-day event. Some of the special guests in attendance will be Sister Kateri Mitchell, SSA; Bishop Stephen Jensen of Prince George, Bishop Gary Gordon of Whitehorse, and Directions in Aboriginal Ministry group representatives.

The pilgrimage site is located west of Prince George, between Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake. Pilgrims are invited to camp at the site during the weekend.
