TRC Call to Action #59 Resources

Here are some resources to help us along in Call to Action #59 which is for churches to educate our people about the role of the church in residential schools and the ongoing impact. These are resources that have been circulating across our three sites and our denomination. If you would like a more extensive list, or have a recommended resource, please contact the office as we are compiling resources from our congregation.
