From the Anglican Diocese of Niagara:
Flags Lowered To Honour Residential School Children Who Never Returned Home.
The flags at Cathedral Place have been lowered to half-mast out of respect for the 215 children whose remains were recently discovered at the Kamloops Indian Residential School.
In doing so, the diocese acknowledges the suffering and pain caused by the residential schools system and the Anglican Church of Canada’s complicity in it, as well as the heartbreaking reality that so many children never returned to their families. Read more…
In 1993, the Anglican Church of Canada offered this apology for its role in the residential school system. There was an additional apology for spiritual harm offered by Archbishop Fred Hiltz in 2019. Anglicans in Niagara are invited to recommit themselves to the work of truth and reconciliation, drawing on resources available through the diocesan truth and reconciliation webpage, including this reconciliation toolkit.
