Prayer in Solidarity

The National Day of Prayer in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples is celebrated on December 12, the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas. The Canadian Catholic Aboriginal Council celebrates this day of prayer, solidarity and reconciliation by issuing an annual message honouring Indigenous people who have been inspired by their Catholic faith. This year, the message is about ?ehtseo Ereya, a Dene elder who  preached the Good News of Jesus and is considered a prophet by his people. (
