Truth and Reconciliation Week - Sept. 25-30

Truth and Reconciliation Week – September 25-30
Posted on 09/25/2023
Truth and Reconciliation

This year’s Catholic Education Week theme, “We Are Called to Love,” was inspired by several events, including Renewing the Promise, Pope Francis’ recent papal visit to Canada.

To support this “call to love” for Truth and Reconciliation Week, Orange Shirt Day, and beyond, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is focused on:

  • building positive connections and relationships while strengthening collaborations with Indigenous communities, parents and families;
  • recognizing the tragic legacy of residential schools, the missing children, the families left behind and the survivors of these institutions; and
  • exploring the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. 
    BTCSS will support the Orange Shirt Campaign on Wednesday, September 27, 2023.
