Truth and Reconciliation Calls to ActionTruth and Reconciliation

The Truth and Reconciliation 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: Advent
When: Starts Nov. 28 in 2021 (four Sundays before Christmas) and runs until Christmas Day.
Colour: Blue
Meaning: "Advent" means "coming" as we await the coming of Jesus (the Word made flesh) into the world at Christmas.
Symbols: Hope and waiting are the themes of this season. Each Sunday a different candle is lit, corresponding with hope, peace, joy and love. Sometimes purple (the colour of royalty, but also of asking forgiveness) is used for each candle; recently, blue (representing Mary, who waits with us for her baby's arrival) has become more common. The third Sunday uses a different colour - pink, representing joy. On Christmas or Christmas eve, the Christ candle (the white one in the middle) is lit.
