PRAYING FOR THE FIRST NATIONS, MÉTIS AND INUIT DELEGATES AS THEY MEET WITH POPE FRANCIS – All are invited to gather at Queen’s House in prayerful solidarity with Indigenous Peoples whose sorrows, hopes, grief and commitments are being presented to Pope Francis over a four-day period beginning on December 17. You are invited to stop by Queen’s House for a time of quiet prayer on Friday December 17, 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. and Saturday December 18, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. For further details please call 306-242-1916.

This year has brought great sadness and shame to this land called Canada and to its Christian faithful with the sweeping discoveries of unmarked graves raising awareness of the part churches played in residential school history. We will hold vigil and pray together that this encounter will be a grace-filled moment of encounter as Pope Francis expresses his deep commitment to hearing directly from Indigenous Peoples in personal meetings with each of three distinct delegations.

Registration is not necessary, but can assist us in anticipating how many people to expect during this prayer vigil:
