We are happy to announce that an "Indigenous Peoples Committee" has been created at Holy Redeemer to encourage parish level reconciliation efforts aimed at establishing and maintaining respectful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians.
1) raising awareness of the ongoing impacts of colonization, including the Indian residential school system;
2) acknowledging and atoning for the harm that has been inflicted; and,
3) taking action towards changing behaviours.
Committee members include: Tony Ritchie, Mireille Church, Peter Atkinson, Edgar Acosta, Sandi Gauthier, Neil Maxwell and Father Paul. If you are interested in joining the Committee, please contact Tony Ritchie (613) 270-9587 or the Parish office: firstname.lastname@example.org
