Due to the Coronavirus outbreak the Institute for Healing of Memories international work headed by Fr. Micahel Lapsley has been severely curtailed.

This has a knock on effect on the fundraising efforts that accompanies these activities. We would like to encourage you to continue to donate to our work.


The work impacted:

Workshops and talks in Myanmar in February followed by a couple of days in Thailand has been postponed to August; The ten day International Training scheduled for March, postponed to August; Virtual presenter at an international conference in New York on apology, postponed until later in the year; Trip to Lebanon in April, postponed to end of August; Germany trip in April, postponed till next year and Luxembourg cancelled, plans has been made to do some training via Zoom and this will happen in collaboration with colleagues in Montreal.

About Us

The Institute for the Healing of Memories seeks to contribute to the healing journey of individuals, communities and nations. Our work is grounded in the belief that we are all in need of healing, because of what we have done, what we have failed to do, and what has been done to us.
