National Day of Prayer in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples of Canada - Dec. 12, 2017

The Catholic Aboriginal Council for Reconciliation was created by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) in 1998 to provide resources to increase awareness of aboriginal issues, to support processes of healing and to foster aboriginal faith leadership in the Christian community. In 2002, this Council recommended that each year December 12 be a National Day of Prayer for Aboriginal People. This is a fitting date as it is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe who is recognized as Our Lady of the Americas. This year, the Day of Prayer has a focus on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
