Teacher of Peace Award

Sr. Priscilla Solomon, CSJ received the Teacher of Peace Award from Tom Sagar of Pax Christi Toronto

On April 30th  Pax Christi Toronto honored Sr. Priscilla Solomon, an indigenous woman and a Sister of St. Joseph of Sault Ste. Marie, by giving her the Teacher of Peace Award. The event was graced with the presence of many different groups of concerned Catholics who believe in a non-violent approach to living and dealing with the world’s problems. 

In her speech she expressed her gratitude to her family, community and to the Spirit that guided her to recognize the community builder within herself.  Sr. Priscilla has played and continues to play a very important role in the education of Catholics and many others across Canada regarding the unjust situtation of indigenous people and the importance of healing and reconciliation with our First Nations brothers and sisters.

She emphasized that every person in Canada is in a treaty relationship because we are in relationship with each other by recognizing each richness in spirituality and culture and through this belief we can make reconciliation and healing to happen.
