CORPUS CHRISTI COLLEGE, VANCOUVER, B.C.
KINGS UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, LONDON, ONTARIO
11 students and teachers from Corpus Christi College returned to the diocese in June 2016 as part of an Aboriginal inculturation and service-learning program. Focus of the course is on Aboriginal culture and issues in northern Canada. The team was led by the capable leadership of Christiana Dumont; Jimmy Lam, and Danielle Gannon. Upon their arrival on Sunday June 12, the group enjoyed an orientation and summary of the major features and issues for the Catholic Church in the north by Bishop Mark Hagemoen, Patrick Scott, Emeritus Bishop Denis Croteau, OMI, and John B. Zoe of Behchokho. The two week visit featured visiting two communities in the Decho region of the Diocese: Fort Liard and Fort Simpson, NWT. Students also visited the community of Dettah near Yellowknife, Behchokho, and Fort Providence.

The pastoral staff here at the Diocese was very grateful for the hard work and generous service of the students. We also appreciated the great energy and enthusiasm the group brought to everything they did. We look forward to further opportunities to receive more Corpus Christi College students in the future.
