2017 Annual Reports

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Institute for Healing of Memories, we are incredibly grateful for the work done by Fr Michael Lapsley and the staff of the Institute during 2017 and are therefore very proud and delighted to endorse and present this annual report to all our partners, supporters, friends, and the public.

Despite the harsh economic climate faced by NGOs globally, the Institute was able to continue programs that have impacted on individuals and communities both locally and globally in profound and transformative ways. The work of all our staff has been very successful, with excellent delivery on our set goals and objectives.

It is with a sense of pride that we reflect on an amazing further development of the God Has Many Names project. This program seeks to promote an interfaith vision among young people with its recent focus on sacred music and sacred art. Programs such as these are essential in creating young people who strive for a world where peace, love, justice, and unity triumph.

Other highlights this year have included the marvellous conference focused on healing the wounds of history. The Institute celebrated the inspiring lecture given by Pearl Means focusing on Standing Rock in the United States of America and the related struggles of the indigenous people of that community....
