This free webinar is designed for clergy, religious, diocesan/parish staff and volunteers, educators, members of the Catholic Women’s league of Canada, members of the Knights of Columbus, and anyone wanting to learn more about human trafficking.
A fresh new study guide has been created in a joint effort of the Archdiocese of Vancouver, the Diocese of Victoria, and the Diocese of Saskatoon. This guide was created as a call to mission; to reduce the harms of human trafficking in our local communities and uphold the dignity of every child of God. Pope Francis describes the church’s mission as a “permanent state” that calls us to go to the “peripheries” of society. The primary and supplementary document of reflection used in this study guide is the 2021 Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops Pastoral Letter on Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation in Canada.
Divided into four sections this guide delves deeper into the pastoral letter and animates it in your specific community context. Each section of this guide follows a particular learning model of See, Learn, Pray, Act. It is recommended to study one section per session. The intent of these reflections is to bring people together in dialogue in local parishes and other community settings. Although in-person settings are ideal the guide is also setup in a way to be used over online communications platforms.
