In a few short weeks, Indigenous delegates from across Canada are scheduled to meet with Pope Francis in Rome as part of the ongoing journey toward healing and reconciliation. The meetings, beginning March 28, are an opportunity for Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers, residential school survivors, and youth to share their experiences and thoughts with the Holy Father. The First Nations, Métis, and Inuit delegates will meet with Pope Francis over five days, ending with a final audience including all participants on April 1.
The Archdiocese has posted an interview with Metis delegate, Gary Gagnon. It is the first of four interviews – the three Alberta delegates, as well as an interview with Fr. Cristino Bouvette of the Calgary Diocese.
