Papal Visit to Canada - Walking Together

Pope Francis will make a pastoral visit to Canada from July 24 to 29, 2022. The Pope’s visit will provide a unique opportunity for him, once again, to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of colonization and the participation of the Catholic Church in the operation of residential schools throughout Canada. The papal visit will also provide an opportunity for the shepherd of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics to connect with the Catholic community in Canada.

As we prepare to welcome Pope Francis to Canada, Catholics across the country are invited to participate in this historic journey in various ways. In addition to television coverage of the papal visit events, visit or to access more than ten live streaming links with interpretations in many languages (including Indigenous languages), as well as live streaming links from Vatican TV with commentary.

The Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation has a website dedicated to information and broadcast details of the papal visit - (French) or (English).

I invite you to pray for the Holy Father and all those participating in this historic journey of healing, reconciliation, and hope.

Archbishop Valéry Vienneau
