Regis College – St Joseph Chapel
100 Wellesley St. W., Toronto
A public lecture hosted by Regis College
Presented by guest-speaker Sr. Gemma Simmonds, CJ.
For centuries women have been collaborating with the Jesuits in the pastoral practice of the Ignatian spiritual heritage. In doing so, they have brought to bear on it a particular creative wisdom born of their own experience. Through the perspective of Mary Ward and other Ignatian women, this lecture explores the questions raised by looking at the heritage from another viewpoint.
