The Roman 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 take place in the Diocese of Kamloops with a second collection on the week-end of Nov.6/7, 2021.
The goal of the Appeal is to support Indian Residential School survivors and Indigenous communities in British Columbia as part of the Diocese of Kamloops ongoing response to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
100% of contributions made to the Diocese of Kamloops for this collection will be allocated for these projects.
As much as possible, these projects will be carried out in consultation with Indigenous leadership, survivors, elders, and other community members. It is our hope that this Appeal will help to restore trust and further the ongoing journey to truth and reconciliation.
