Thank you

Planning a Papal Visit involves co-operation and support from many different partners. A special thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who gave generously fo their time and talents to make the visit possible.

We would like to express our gratitude to those who have supported Pope Francis’ pilgrimage of healing, reconciliation and hope:

Indigenous Partners

We extend our sincere gratitude to the countless Indigenous partners involved in preparing to welcome the Holy Father. From National Indigenous Organizations to local communities, host committees and volunteers, the Papal Visit to Canada would not have been possible without your support. To First Nations, Métis and Inuit partners across this land, we are most grateful.
