Walking together: Why the papal visit matters for reconciliation

July 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Pope Francis’s upcoming visit to Canada in July 2022 is both historic and vital for Indigenous peoples.  The trip is built around a series of apologies for the church’s role in residential schools and the colonization of Indigenous peoples more generally.  This webinar explores the significant and potential impact of the Pope’s visit from two perspectives: that of the affected Indigenous peoples and communities, and the Roman Catholic Church.  The discussion will consider Indigenous expectations, church priorities, and the public interest in this large-scale effort of meaningful reconciliation.
