It was with great sadness that we heard about the discovery of the mass grave of 215 children from the Kamloops Residential school. Let us pray for the souls of those lost, for their families and all those who went through this Government of Canada program. Many people have asked questions about the role of the Catholic Church in the Residential School system. You can read the answers to some of the frequently asked questions here; provided by the Archdiocese of Toronto. We are still waiting for the Government of Canada to take responsibility for their actions.
The flag in front of the rectory will remain at half staff until noon Saturday June 12. Many thanks to whoever started the shoe memorial on the front steps. I encourage those who wish to contribute to do so. Thank-you.
