Today in a public audience, Pope Francis spoke to the First Nation, Inuit, and Métis delegates who had travelled to Rome. Time and care must be taken as we reflect on what was shared. As part of our commitment to the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the Caretakers’ Calls to the Church, The United Church of Canada is seeking the wisdom of the Elders’ Council and National Indigenous Council as to how we might respond. 

The church is invited to pray with the Moderator for the delegates who travelled to Rome.
