Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

After 6 years of work, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) will be ending on June 3, 2015.  By way of marking its closing, four full days of events have been planned.  This letter is to highlight some of those events and to encourage you and your congregation to participate in the events, either by attending them in Ottawa if possible or, by developing your own events and celebrating in your own area.  This needs to be a Canada-wide celebration.

Frères et sœurs en Christ,

Après six années de travail, la Commission de vérité et réconciliation (CVR) terminera son mandat le 3 juin 2015. Pour l’occasion, plusieurs évènements sont organisés pendant quatre jours. Cette lettre a pour but de vous en informer et de vous inviter, vous et votre paroisse, à prendre part à ces activités, soit en y participant à Ottawa même si cela est possible, sinon en organisant vous-même un évènement pour souligner cette démarche dans votre milieu. La CVR mérite bien, en effet, une célébration partout au pays.
