Truth and Reconciliation

St. Ignatius Parish, School and Spiritual Education Centre resides on Treaty One Territory; the Traditional Land of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the National Homeland of the Red River Métis.

This acknowledgement is intended as a reminder of the harms of the past and our joint commitment to a spirit of reconciliation through education and action. We respect the treaties that were made here, and are grateful for this land on which we pray, learn, live and play.
