2011 Reunions Schedule

Note on Reunions:

We have scheduled five reunions for the year

  • Participants and a facilitator or two from each workshop must give a firm undertaking to be present at the reunions.
  • The number of participants at each reunion may be large. The venue therefore must be large enough to accommodate the possible number.
  • Must know the number of participants so that adequate refreshments could be provided.
  • Participants must be informed of the reunion dates prior to the scheduled workshop in a workshop.
  • The venue arrangements can also be made between IHOM Office and a workshop group leader.
  • Reunion in Correctional Service Centres: Special arrangements will be made with prisons management.

Donations and Bequests

A Healing of Memories workshop is a liberating experience, and for many people the first time they are given the opportunity to tell their stories of pain, suffering and oppression. Feelings of anger, hatred and the need for revenge begin to be overcome, and are replaced with a willingness to consider forgiveness and reconciliation. This holds true not only for South Africans, but also for people in other countries where experiences of war and oppression continue to impact on their lives.

As you reflect on your last wishes please consider making a bequest to the Institute for Healing of Memories.

The donations and bequests we receive give more people the opportunity to liberate themselves from the past by attending a Healing of Memories workshop. Should you wish to make a further donation, you may make a direct deposit into our bank account, or post a cheque to the appropriate address listed below. As we would like to thank each of our donors personally, we would appreciate your advising us of a direct deposit by email or by mail at the addresses given on the Donations page.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
With all good wishes
Fr. Michael Lapsley SSM
