November 03, 2022

National Chairperson of Community Life Faith Anderson, November 3, 2022


In this time-sensitive communiqué, there is an opportunity to learn more about human trafficking and, in particular, introduce a study guide created as a joint effort by the Archdiocese of Vancouver and the Saskatoon and Victoria dioceses. A webinar, “For Freedom Christ Has Set Us Free,” is scheduled to introduce the Working Towards Freedom: Human Trafficking Study Guide.

Dates: Thursday, November 24th at 11:00 a.m. CST or Saturday, November 26th at noon CST. This free webinar is one hour long and will be the same presentation on both days it is offered.

The information is designed for clergy, religious, diocesan or parish staff and volunteers, educators, members of the League or Knights of Columbus and anyone who wishes to learn more about human trafficking. The guide is divided into four sections and follows a particular learning model of See, Learn, Pray, Act. Find it at

Provincial chairpersons of community life are asked to ensure this communiqué is directed to the next level and to request that parish councils receive the information.

“The more we know and understand about human trafficking, the more we can do to stop it. Education is our greatest weapon in the prevention of human trafficking. When we know who is most vulnerable and the signs to watch for, we can all take steps to prevent it from happening. Everyone plays a role in prevention. Working together we can prevent human trafficking in communities across Canada” (Joy Smith Foundation).
