Join us at 11 a.m. in Room 213 (or virtually) for a special Redeemer Reads event that also includes a visual art presentation! Greg Kennedy and Lorraine Roy will be joining us over Zoom to share their work.


Lorraine Roy is a full-time professional artist working in textiles. Her formal education in the Sciences provides ongoing inspiration for her realistic and abstract portrayals of trees and nature. Since acquiring a B.Sc. in Ornamental Horticulture, Lorraine has gone on to study many other aspects of tree science, tree lore and tree symbolism, all of which inform her art. She lives in Dundas, Ontario.

Greg Kennedy SJ is a Jesuit priest working in spirituality and ecology at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario.  He is author of three books, including Reupholstered Psalms, which features Lorraine Roy’s fabric art and, most recently, Amazing Friendships Between Animals and Saints, illustrated by Guelph artist, Kerry Wilson.

The Zoom link is available here.


*Please note that due to COVID-19, outside visitors are prohibited on campus at this time. Participants who are not Redeemer students, faculty or staff will have to attend this event virtually.
