Contemplative Dialogue and Ignatian Retreats
Kateri Native Ministry is in partnership with the Jesuits of English Canada. Not only was our patron saint instructed by the Jesuits, but our priest, Fr. Hasina Rakotoarisoa, and our Archbishop Terrence Prendergast are also Jesuits.
The Society of Jesus is unique in that the order has historically made an effort to connect with and understand the Indigenous people of Canada. So it’s only natural that Kateri Native Ministry has decided to participate in Contemplative Dialogue and Ignatian Retreats held by the Jesuits of English Canada.
These practices will draw from a book, The Quest for Spiritual Wisdom, which is an expression of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius modified with the language and spirituality of Indigenous people. This mode of prayers will help practitioners grow from the core of their living beings as Indigenous Christians.
