Pope makes historic apology to Indigenous for Canada abuses

BY The Canadian Press, Apr 1, 2022 4:50 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

This has been an emotional day for Indigenous Canadians, who have finally received an apology from the Roman Catholic Church for its

role in the residential school system.

Pope Francis made the historic apology at the Vatican, begging forgiveness and telling about 190 Indigenous delegates that he hopes to visit Canada around the Feast of St. Anna, which falls on July 26th.

Chief Gerald Antoine says Francis recognized the cultural genocide that was inflicted on Indigenous children, calling today a first step on the path of reconciliation.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says today wouldn't have happened without the bravery and determination of residential school survivors who journeyed to the Vatican to tell their truths and painful memories.
