TRUTH & RECONCILIATION

We acknowledge that the church has not always been a peaceful presence as we have engaged with the world. This is particularly true of the relationship of the church and Indigenous people of Canada. As we learn from the past and envision a new future we are committed to work towards Truth & Reconciliation. As a primary effort of relationship building, we have been cultivating ongoing relationships with members of Beardy's & Okemasis First Nation.

 

Throughout the year we engage a variety of events related to the work of Truth & Reconciliation. Past events have included Rock Your Roots Walk for Reconciliation, National Indigenous Peoples Day Ceremonies, KAIROS Blanket Exercise, Land Acknowledgement Workshop, Office of the Treaty Commission Workshop, along with various cultural events at Beardy's & Okemasis First Nation.
