Sunday, September 22, 2013 – A walk for Reconciliation

On Sunday, September 22, 2013, we had a unique opportunity to participate in a significant moment in our nations history – on e of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s National Events. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is a five-year process requested by survivors of the Indian Residential Schools as part of their settlement agreement with the government and the four churches which operated the schools. As members of a church that ran the schools and was a named party in the settlement agreement, Anglicans have agreed to participate in these events.

A Walk for Reconciliation began from the Vancouver Art Gallery at 10:00 a.m.
