On December 12, feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Church in Canada celebrates the National Day of Prayer in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples. This project, with the approval of the Bishops of Canada, has been coordinated since 2002 by the Canadian Catholic Indigenous Council.

This year, the reflection by the Council draws on the theme explored during the recent Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment and its connection to traditional Indigenous spiritualties. "...that for young people to achieve their potential, to become prophets of the future that God has made them to be, they are in need of the dreams of their Elders, of the prophets who have gone before them."
