On September 27, 2021, the Bishops of Canada announced a $30 Million National Financial Pledge target that will be raised over a period of five (5) years to support local/regional healing and reconciliation initiatives for residential school survivors, their families, and their communities.
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.
