“It is heart-breaking to listen to the news. We wish to honour the 215 children who were found buried on the grounds of the Kamloops (Tk’emlups) Residential School in British Columbia. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families, all First Nations Communities, and all who mourn this terrible loss and the secrecy for all the years.

The Sisters of Charity Halifax are committed to the work of Truth and Reconciliation. We engage with people around the world to respond to the cries of children, to bring justice to unjust structures, and to love and grow.

This discovery is a profoundly disturbing reminder that we must humbly pray for guidance and courageously act to right wrongs.The love of God’s Spirit impels us forward.  May each life be respected, dignified, and nourished.”
