Statement regarding Kamloops Indian Residential School

By | Article, Artículo, children, Oracion, Pray, protect, Reconciliation | No Comments

A classroom building of Kamloops Indian Residential School about 1950. (Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. Library and Archives Canada)

“For the souls of all children who died in Residential Schools far from the comforting presence of the families, and for all those who mourn their tragic deaths: we pray they find comfort and peace in the presence of our loving Lord and Saviour.”

Expression of Commitment
June 2, 2021
Dear First Nations governments and all Indigenous communities, families and citizens,
In light of the heartbreaking disclosure of the remains of 215 children at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, I am writing to express my deep apology and profound condolences to the families and communities that have been devastated by this horrific news.  Each time new evidence of a tragedy is revealed, or another victim comes forward, countless wounds are reopened, and I know that you experience renewed suffering.
I take this opportunity to reflect upon the apology I gave publicly before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2013, words to which I remain committed and accountable: “I wish to apologize sincerely and profoundly to the survivors and their families, as well as to all those subsequently affected, for the anguish caused by the deplorable conduct of those Catholics who perpetrated mistreatment of any kind in these residential schools.”  The Church was unquestionably wrong in implementing a government colonialist policy which resulted in devastation for children, families and communities.

B.C. allowing churches to open with 50 people, details to come

By | Announcement, Article, Artículo, covid19 | No Comments
Dr. Bonnie Henry stated today that indoor worship services with up to 50 people will be allowed to resume this weekend.  The variance detailing safety requirements will be posted on the BC Restart site on Thursday, and these are expected to be very similar to those in place last fall.
This is good news indeed!   While there is work ahead of us to prepare for the presence of congregations in our churches once again, the return to the celebration of Mass with the participation of the faithful, now and more fully as the summer unfolds, is a reason to give thanks to God.
More information will be coming from the Communications Office as it becomes available.
With the assurance of my prayers, I remain
