A Christ-Centered Co-Journey Towards Healing (2023)


A picture of two young Indigenous girls, embracing each other by the arms. The girl on the left is wearing a red dress with moccasins. The girl on the right is wearing a long, yellow top, with a black skirt, and moccasins. The poster informs that a special collection will take place the weekend of November 4 and 5, 2023 in support of reconciliation between the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall and Indigenous peoples of the region.

In less than three weeks, we will have our second special collection for the Archdiocese’s fundraising

campaign in support of the Indigenous Reconciliation Fund. This is an important part of our Christ-centered co-journey towards healing between Catholic parishes and Indigenous peoples of our region.


Located across from Cornwall are the Mohawks of Akwesasne, a community of more than 12,000 proud Indigenous people. The Akwesasne Kateri Prayer Circle has received a grant for a four-part

Akwesasronon Healing and Reconciliation Project. The initiative will include teaching the Kanienkeha (Mohawk) Language through hymns and song, leading to an Akwesasronon youth choir. It will also work in collaboration with the Native North American Travelling College to create a youth healing and reconciliation program. It is through your generosity that we can help make these initiatives possible.
