The funds will contribute to the following priorities:
The Indigenous Reconciliation Fund will ensure fiscal measures of transparency, accountability, and good governance in accepting contributions from 73 dioceses across Canada in order to fulfill the $30 million financial commitment made by Canada’s Bishops in September 2021 at their Plenary Assembly.
There were 25 residential schools in the Province of Alberta. Four of these operated by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) were within the boundaries of the Diocese.
Together as the Diocese of Calgary, we unite our efforts in working with the Indigenous Peoples in the pursuit of truth, justice, healing, and reconciliation.
Thank you for considering this important cause in your financial giving.
