The federal government approved September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is to recognize and commemorate the legacy of the residential schools in Canada and the children who attended and those who died while in attendance. The day is an opportunity for the clergy and laity of our diocese to meditate, reflect and offer prayer. We encourage you to read “The Orange Shirt Story: The True Story of Orange Shirt Day”” at home and during services of worship and wear orange clothing September 30.
