Collection in Support of Healing and Reconciliation
The B.C. Bishops have announced a campaign to raise funds to support healing and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. In the Archdiocese of Vancouver, a collection will be taken at all parishes on the weekend of September 11/12.
The collection will support Indian Residential School survivors and Indigenous communities in British Columbia as part of the Archdiocese’s ongoing response to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
100% of contributions will be allocated for these projects and, as much as possible, the projects will be carried out in consultation with Indigenous leadership, survivors, elders, and other community members. Archbishop Miller: “It is our hope that this campaign will help to restore trust and further the ongoing journey to truth and reconciliation,”
