On February 8, 2023, the Bishops of Canada released a series of pastoral letters to advance the journey
of healing, reconciliation and hope with Indigenous Peoples of this land. Individual letters have been
prepared for First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities. In addition, the bishops have released a
letter to Catholics throughout the country.
Copies of the letters can be accessed by visiting: www.archtoronto.org/healingandreconciliation
Catholics throughout the archdiocese are invited to reflect, learn and join in efforts to nurture and
deepen our relationship with Indigenous Peoples. We pray that the letters may serve as an additional
tool to guide the journey of healing, reconciliation and hope.
