“Walking Together” – Papal Visit to Canada
July 24 to 29, 2022
The Holy Father will visit Canada from July 24 to July 29, 2022. Pope Francis’ historic visit to Canada will provide an opportunity for the Pope to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples and to address the impact of residential schools in Canada.
The Holy Father will begin his Canadian visit by traveling to Edmonton, Alberta, then to Quebec City, St. Anne-de-Beaupré and then to Iqaluit, Nunavut before returning to Rome.
Drawing on the theme, “Walking Together”, the Holy Father’s journey of reconciliation, healing and hope includes visits to a former residential school, Indigenous pilgrimage sites, and several private and public events, including two public Masses.
