From the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops:
Pope Francis will make a pastoral visit to Canada from July 24 to 29, 2022.
The Pope’s visit will provide a unique opportunity for him, once again, to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of colonization and the participation of the Catholic Church in the operation of residential schools throughout Canada.
The papal visit will also provide an opportunity for the shepherd of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics to connect with the Catholic community in Canada.
The Catholic Church has a responsibility to take genuine and meaningful steps to journey with Indigenous Peoples of this land on the lengthy path to healing and reconciliation.
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops invites you to visit their website to learn more about the ongoing journey of healing and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples of this land:
