Understanding the letter to Indigenous Peoples from the Canadian Catholic Bishops - Perspectives Daily

March 27, 2018
Good evening and welcome to Perspectives Daily
We begin today with some news from Ottawa as the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a letter to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada regarding the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Fr. Thomas Rosica joins us in the studio to shed some light on the context of this letter, and what it might mean for future Church and Indigenous relations.
You can read the complete letter here.
As the story unfolds, you can be sure that I will bring you more details in the days to come.
That is all that we have time for today. Join us again tomorrow, when I bring you more news and stories from the Perspectives of a Catholic Lens.
