On June 20, 2018, the Truth and Reconciliation panel was unveiled in the Heritage Garden on the grounds of Caritas Residence in Halifax, NS.
Sisters, Associates, Mount Saint Vincent University community members and friends gathered for the simple unveiling ceremony. Dorene Bernard, a Shubenacadie Residential School survivor and whose work is featured on the “Truth” panel, offered a prayer. Sister Pat Kelly, a former teacher at Shubenacadie, was also in attendance.
“It’s really special and important that [Dorene] and Sister Pat would come be with us because I think that’s symbolic of how much we want to reconcile,” said Sister Joan O’Keefe.
