The CCRL is devoted to combating anti-Catholic defamation and to bringing Church teaching to bear on issues of public debate
The CCRL is providing Canada’s only nationwide database that tracks and records attacks against our churches and other Catholic properties.
The CCRL has been working with media to highlight the unacceptable violence against Catholic churches across Canada in July and the lacklustre response from politicians and law enforcement to find and charge perpetrators, deterring further attacks.
We stand with the victims of the residential school program and seek healing and reconciliation, but violence and property destruction does not answer these needs.
The CCRL decries the destruction of these two churches as acts of violence against religion and people of faith.
