National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
As Canadians take time to commemorate the first-ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, parishioners are invited to take time to pray for healing and reconciliation with our Indigenous brothers and sisters. We invite parishioners to pray a rosary for the intentions of Truth and Reconciliation and to attend Mass at Annunciation at 9:00 a.m.
Mass for Healing and Reconciliation
On the eve of the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation Fr. Daryold Winkler, pastor of St. Basil’s Parish and a member of the Ojibway First Nation, will preside at Mass then bless the trees planted in memory of the Indigenous children lost at residential schools. Holy Redeemer Church, 44 Rothesay, Kanata, Wed., Sept. 29, 7:00 p.m. Info: email@example.com.
