This learning and prayer guide has been developed to help raise awareness for the impact of residential schools on Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, and to offer the opportunity for intentional prayer as you are guided through the TRC’s Calls to Action and additional relevant information and resources. Let this expression of faith and hope in action renew our hearts and minds so that by the Spirit of our Creator God, we may honour one another as image-bearers and be reconciled.

A rich document called Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) deepens our understanding of some of the heart cries of Canada’s Aboriginal population. Aboriginal history is exceptionally complex and cannot be summarized in a few pages. The T&R Commission has done an excellent job of contextualizing the 94 Calls to Actions in their final report.

We encourage you to visit the TRC website and read through the Executive Summary to understand the context of each call to action.

  2. Good Morning!

    My name is Deacon Harrold Salahub and I am the Religious Coordinator of the Prince Albert Catholic School Division in Saskatchewan.

    I came across this resource and would love to use the Truth and Reconciliation Prayer Guide with our school division staff. I am hoping for your permission to use it as it is very good.

    Take care and look forward to you soon.
