National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Posted on Aug 12, 2021

Medicine Hat Catholic Schools dedicate September 30 as a day of reflection and education.

At the Public Board Meeting in June of 2021, The Board of Trustees made a motion that Medicine Hat Catholic schools will dedicate September 30, 2021 (Orange Shirt Day), as an instructional day for the schools to provide specific instruction and activities for reconciliation related to Residential Schools. Details regarding activities and instruction will be provided to staff by our Division Indigenous Lead Teacher.

Staff and students are encouraged to wear Orange on September 30.

Let us join in prayer: 

  • For the children who died in residential schools throughout Canada and for all those who continue on a journey through the darkness, that there may be healing founded on truth and that the Spirit will inspire our ongoing commitment to reconciliation.
    God, through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, continue to offer us correction so that your grace might change and transform us in our weakness and repentance.
    Give us humility to listen when others reveal how we have failed and courage to love others as ourselves, mindful of your love for the weakest and most vulnerable among us.  Amen.
