“For more than three decades, the Anglican Church of Canada has been on a journey of listening, truth-telling, repentance and healing with Indigenous Peoples, both within and outside the church. There is an urgent need for further healing and justice-seeking across the land, and we all have a role to play.” ~Anglican Church of Canada Website



The community of St. Laurence seeks to be an open and inclusive community.  As such, we acknowledge that we have much to learn.  We also seek to be a community of reconciliation. Members of Issues and Action have been involved in teachings and reflections about Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, looking for ways to deepen our knowledge of the stories of Indigenous people, the trauma experienced through systemic racism, residential schools and disproportionate engagement of child welfare in the lives of Indigenous families.
