The training program has been designed specific to residential school issues and
Returning to Spirit" was initiated and developed by Marc Pizandawatc, an Algonquin from Kitiganzibi First Nation, and Ann Thompson, a Sister of St. Anne from B.C. The two met during a workshop that Pizandawatc was conducting in Yellow knife, and from that conversation "Returning to Spirit" was born. Through the initiative and efforts of Bishop Denis Croteau, OMI, this process was adopted in other dioceses. Five years later, the workshops have enabled hundreds of church and First Nations persons to reclaim and reconstitute their personal and communal lives.
