In June, the federal government passed new legislation making September 30th a national statutory holiday commemorating National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. National Day for Truth and Reconciliation commemorates the history and ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and is intended to honour the survivors, families and communities who continue to grieve for those who were lost. While this not a statutory holiday in Ontario, our Chancery office will be closed that day. Therefore, our parish office will be closed as well.
There will be a Mass of Reconciliation at Sacred Heart Parish on Thursday September 30th, at 9:00 a.m. Wear Orange if you have it, to show support.
