Truth and Reconciliation Calls to ActionTruth and Reconcilation

The Truth and Reconcilation Commission was established in 2008 to document the history and impacts of the Canadian Indian residential school system on indigenous students and their families. Its final report was issued in 2015. In light of the recent revelations of gravesites identified on the grounds of former Indigenous Residential Schools, this is a good time to have a closer look at the Calls to Action (part of the larger report) that were put forward at that time.

About the season: Ordinary Time
When: From Pentecost Sunday (May 23 in 2021) until the beginning of Advent (Nov 28 in 2021).
Colour: GREEN
About the Date: "Ordinary" comes from "ordinal" which means "counting" as we count the Sundays to Advent
Meaning: As crops slowly grow in the fields, this time between the major holy seasons in the church provides a time in which we can grow our faith, and then turn our focus to the mission of the church in the world. In the United Church of Canada, the part of this season between Labour Day and the first Sunday of Advent has also recently been called the "Season of Creation" as an opportunity to consider our blessings that come from the Earth that we depend on.
