Update On The Vatican Visit

Posted on: December 8, 2021

From the Office of the Chief –

I wanted to provide an update on the Vatican trip that was scheduled for December 2021 to meet with The Holy See, Pope Francis. The Vatican meeting has been postponed. A new date will be confirmed and further notice to follow January 2022.

I wanted to ensure that membership was aware of this change in plans. The decision was made due to the health and safety concerns for the entire 13-member delegation from Canada that was scheduled to meet the Pope.

This delay in the meeting will allow me to do additional reach out to TteS survivors as well as survivors from other Nations that also attended KIRS. I want to ensure that survivors have the opportunity to be part of the dialogue to inform me about the messages that I will bring forward.

Membership will be kept informed of the updated plans and I look forward to continued dialogue with membership.
