With profound sadness and heartfelt sorrow, we the parishioners of St. Peter’s Parish, learned with the rest of Canada of the discovery of another 751 bodies in a cemetery of a residential school in Canada.
We are deeply sorry that our Indigenous brothers and sisters suffered and died in such a tragic manner in Canada’s residential schools.
We pray for these innocent children and their families.
Our community expresses its profound sorrow that this happened in Canada and that members of the Catholic Church participated in this system.
We are praying for all who continue to suffer because of these tragic events. All will be remembered at our parish Masses.
We pray for reconciliation and healing in our nation and Church.
