Seeking Truth and Reconciliation2021-05-11T12:38:23+00:00

One of the purposes of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Circle is to assist Catholics in engagement with the Truth and Reconciliation process and its Calls to Action. The Circle seeks first to understand Indigenous Peoples and Spiritualities and their relationship to the Catholic Church. It is by honouring Indigenous peoples, cultures and spiritualities and by acknowledging with sadness the many failures of the past that the work of reconciliation can move forward.

The Circle recognizes that understanding and education must lead to action for reconciliation.
