On July 13, 2021, the Bishops of Saskatchewan announced a new province-wide Appeal for Support of Healing and Reconciliation – sponsored by our dioceses and eparchy here in Saskatchewan. The overall goal of this campaign is to support Indian Residential School survivors and their communities, and to engage more deeply in our own ongoing commitment and response to the Truth and Reconciliation process.
APPEAL GOAL: To support Indian Residential School survivors and their communities, and to engage more deeply in our own ongoing commitment and response to the Truth and Reconciliation process.
FUNDING PRIORITIES: Healing and Reconciliation, Cemeteries on the sites of former residential schools, Education and Cultural Support
Funds will be allocated to national and local initiatives responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action involving a financial commitment, as guided by Indigenous communities here in Saskatchewan (cf. Calls to Action #61, #73-76; #82).
WORKING WITH INDIGENOUS PARTNERS: We are collaborating with potential participants, and consulting with Indigenous dialogue partners, including Survivors, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Chiefs, and other community members. Out of these conversations, each diocese and eparchy will discern and communicate separately how they will proceed with the Appeal in their respective dioceses and communities.
FINANCIAL GOAL & TIMELINE: We look forward to announcing our province-wide goal and timeline by September 2021.
