Fr. Michael Lapsley SSM

Today will welcome a special guest, The Rev. Michael Lapsley SSM.  Fr. Lapsley is a South African Anglican priest and the founder of the Institute for Healing of Memories (IHOM).

Fr. Lapsley, who lost both hands and an eye in a letter bomb attack in Zimbabwe in 1990, is known internationally for his work that brings together people from different racial, religious, and social backgrounds.  In June, Fr. Lapsley met with Pope Francis to discuss the healing of memories.

Fr. Lapsley’s class is entitled “Redeeming the Past: Healing Memories of Individuals, Communities, and Nations.”  After discussing his story and the founding of IHOM, he will lead a conversation about how the healing of memories and old wounds resonates with all those present.  Please mark your calendar for this very special presentation.
