As many of you heard last Friday, Pope Francis will make a pastoral visit to Canada from July 24 to 29, 2022. The Pope’s visit will provide an opportunity for him to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of residential schools in Canada. The papal visit will also provide an opportunity for the shepherd of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics to connect with the Catholic community in Canada. Pope Francis will adopt three communities as a base for his Canadian visit: Edmonton, Quebec City, and Iqaluit.
Specific programming and events will be confirmed approximately six weeks prior to the Holy Father’s arrival. Visit papalvisit.ca or visitepapale.ca for more information and to stay updated on the latest developments.
