Help Support Local Indigenous Projects and Initiatives

All the money raised during “A Christ-Centred, Co-Journey Towards Healing” will stay in our local communities. Indigenous Groups and Organizations such as Kateri Native Ministry located in Ottawa and the North American Travelling College located in Akwesasne will be able to apply for grants for such things as culture and language revitalization, education and community building. Projects may include programs that offer training and leadership formation to Indigenous communities, curation of oral histories and a curriculum for school-aged children to teach language and share their Indigenous culture. Your generosity in prayer and through your sacrificial gift, will make this possible. Please prayerfully consider giving to this campaign.
