The Indigenous Solidarity Working Group, comprising parishioners and friends, is interested in the complex and myriad issues surrounding Indigenous People in Canada, and in particular relating to our urban Indigenous neighbours.
The group’s focus is both education and outreach. New members are welcome to assist with programming.
