Archbishop's Campaign for Healing and Reconciliation
The Catholic Bishops of British Columbia recognize the need for a province-wide initiative to raise funds to support healing and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in our Province. This appeal will launch formally in September 2021.
The Archdiocese of Vancouver is launching its Campaign immediately, and then will hold an Archdiocesan-wide Second Collection on the weekend of September 11/12.
The goal of the Campaign is to support Indian Residential School survivors and Indigenous communities in British Columbia as part of the Archdiocese’s ongoing response to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
100% of contributions made to the Archdiocese of Vancouver for this Campaign will be allocated for these projects.
These projects will be carried out in consultation with Indigenous leadership, survivors, elders, and other community members. It is our hope that this Campaign will help to restore trust and further the ongoing journey to truth and reconciliation.
If you prefer to donate by cheque, please make the cheque payable to the Archdiocese of Vancouver with “Healing and Reconciliation” in the memo.
