  • Fall 2022 Regional Gathering canceled

    September 3, 2022

    We had hoped to have an in-person St. Lawrence Regional Gathering this fall at the end of September, but the location we had planned to use is no longer available. The Monthly Meeting responsible for the next program did not feel that an alternate fall venue could be found. COVID-19 is also still giving us uncertainties around in-person gatherings. May we see an improvement in that over the winter and may we ruminate on possible in-person gathering spots for early June.

  • Texts from the Contemplative Walk by Water: Regional Gathering 2021

    July 4, 2021

    On June 19, 2021, St. Lawrence Regional Gathering took a contemplative walk after a morning hearing about the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway and its impact on the life of Kahnwake. We had also heard an explanation of legal issues under discussion about the personhood of rivers. For this contemplative exercise, walkers were encouraged to walk by water if they could.
