    Pledge to Indigenous Reconciliation

    Each Diocese across Canada has pledged a sum of money to ensure that the national financial commitment will be met. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Peterborough (“Diocese”) was asked and has agreed to pledge the sum of $400 000. The funds will be overseen by a local committee comprised of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (“FNMI”) representation and used for these purposes: 

    • Healing and reconciliation for communities and families; 

    • Culture and language revitalization; 

    • Education and community building; and 

    • Dialogues for promoting indigenous spirituality and culture.

    To donate online: 

    This Year the Special Collection for the Bishop’s Appeal will go to the Indigenous Reconciliation Fund.
