National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

On Thursday, September 30, 2021, across the country, Canadians will be observing the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The ongoing journey to healing and reconciliation has a particular relevance for Catholics throughout Canada given the church's involvement in operating many residential schools and recognizing the suffering and intergenerational trauma that remains for many survivors to this day. This day provides an opportunity for all Canadians to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools, and commit to working for truth and reconciliation in the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.

All are welcome to join Cardinal Thomas Collins for a virtual prayer service on September 30, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. – you can access the prayer service through the St. Michael's Cathedral Basilica livestream at:

In addition, spiritual and educational resources relating to Indigenous Healing & Reconciliation can be accessed by visiting:

The Church is open for you to come for private prayer or community prayer.

As COVID-19 cases decline and the number of people who've gotten the vaccine increases, it is an opportunity for us see each other in person and pray together.

SAFETY is still the priority. If you are grieving, isolated, or still fearful, we keep you close to our heart. We connect in Live stream Masses that are available through our website.

Pastor, St. Norbert's Church
