Bishop Lynne encourages parishes to consider marking National Indigenous Sunday on Sunday, June 23 (the closest Sunday to June 21, National Indigenous Day.) One of the things that excites me about the Diocese of Kootenay is a will to live into our commitments to the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and I pray you find creative ways to do this in your community.

The General Synod established the National Indigenous Day of Prayer on the 21 June in the Calendar of the Anglican Church of Canada enrolled under the heading of Other Major Feasts That Take Precedence of a Sunday and listed within of Other Major Feasts on page 16 of the BAS.
