TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION DAY
In recent years, September 30th has been known as
"Orange Shirt Day",
named after the residential schools experience of the campaign's founder, Phyllis Webstad.
Support of this national day of commemoration is a direct response to one of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action.
As such, please note that:
the Pastoral Centre, parish offices, and all Cathlic schools in the Diocese of Victoria will be closed on September 30th to encourage staff to commemorate Truth and Reconciliation Day.
TRUTH, RECONCILIATION, HEALING AND
AFFIRMING THE PATH OF FRIENDSHIP
Sunday, August 15, 2021, over 200 people from Indigenous and Catholic communities gathered in the church hall at Our lady of the Rosary for an evening of truth, reconciliation, healing and affirming the path of friendship.
