Special Notes: This event will take place outdoors, in Assisi Heights Canticle Park and surrounding grounds. Entry into the Assisi Heights building is not permitted at this time. Please park in the Canticle Park parking lot (Parking Map included above) and join the group in the grassy area. Despite the signage, we are open for limited sponsored events only, so you will still see the closure signs at the entrance to Assisi Heights. All participants are requested to wear their masks while on Assisi Heights property. (Event is subject to updated COVID-19 guidelines.)
Explore the topography of the Assisi Heights 110 acres that is held sacred and preserved through the implementation of Franciscan values. Learn about stewardship practices that manage and sustain this piece of land entrusted to us. Indigenous Natives have called this place home before us. We acknowledge that Assisi Heights occupies the ancestral home of the Dakota. This sacred land is filled with stories of the indigenous peoples. We invite you to join us in reflecting on how their stories and traditional ecological knowledge can transform our collective story.
