Bishop Susan Bell invites you to: “Doctrine of Discovery; Stolen lands, Strong Hearts”

“Doctrine of Discovery; Stolen lands, Strong Hearts,” is a film about a devastating decision, made over 500 years ago, which continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide. Take a step forward in understanding how we can respond to the 94 Calls to Action from Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Mark your calendars for a special Diocesan viewing of this film at:

Christ’s Church Cathedral, Hamilton, on Wed., June 19, at 7:00 p.m.

Master of Ceremonies will be the Venerable Valerie Kerr, Archdeacon for Truth, Reconciliation and Indigenous Ministry with special guest, The Right Rev. Mark MacDonald, the Anglican Church of Canada’s first National Indigenous Bishop.
