National Day for Truth and Reconciliation 

Mount St. Francis Retreat Centre will be closed September 30 to commemorate this first national day for Truth and Reconciliation. The friars and staff are using this time to take part in events and teachings that focused on the harmful legacy of Indian Residential Schools in Canada.  We know of the pain caused by the Church’s role in operating these schools and want to understand more clearly our way forward as a spiritual centre of peace, healing and prayer that welcomes everyone. The 11:30 a.m. Mass will be offered for the continued work of reconciliation.
