Reconciliation

St. Mary’s is also committed to learning about reconciling with our indigenous communities,  to understand what our role needs to be, and to reach out in appropriate ways. We have had several indigenous leaders speak to the parish about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action and the impact of the residential schools across Canada. We were able to contribute over $7,000 to the Warriors Against Violence Society to support their work with counselling and empowering indigenous men and women towards a peaceful family life, free from domestic abuse.

Meetings:
An average of six times a year to plan and implement educational/awareness events and fundraising opportunities.
