Our Lady of Guadalupe Circle is a Catholic coalition of Indigenous people, bishops, clergy, lay movements and institutes of consecrated life, engaged in renewing and fostering relationships between the Catholic Church and Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Circle has a fourfold purpose:
- To provide a forum for its members to dialogue and encourage deeper understanding of the relationships between the Church and Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous spiritualities in Canada.
- To serve as a united Catholic public voice on relations and dialogue between the Church and Indigenous Peoples, and between Catholic and Indigenous spiritualities in Canada.
- To assist Catholics in engagement with the Truth and Reconciliation process and its Calls to Action.
- To carry out agreed upon initiatives and concrete actions.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Circle is motivated by the love of Christ, filled with great hope for the future and attentive to the Holy Spirit’s action in our world, to the glory of our compassionate Creator and Father.
