Pastoral Message for Indigenous Children

My Beloved in Christ,

 

With you, my heart breaks when I think of the children who died as a result of the residential school system run by churches on behalf of our government and the people of our country.  The devastation of the children’s parents, families, and communities is impossible to fathom.  The Anglican Church of Canada as an institution, was part of that horrible legacy.  For quite some time, our church has been working with indigenous peoples and others to expose and come to grips with truth and develop a means of reconciliation with our Indigenous sisters and brothers.  You can learn about this process on the website of the Anglican Church of Canada. https://www.anglican.ca/resource-category/truth-reconciliation/

 

As part of this work, our leaders have offered apologies.  Here are links to the apologies and a statement from Archbishop Linda Nicholls.  I encourage you to read the apologies and learn more about how we can be part of the healing process.

 

With love and blessings,

Yours in Christ,

Jeff+

Land Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge that for thousands of years this has been and still is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations, Anishinaabe Nation, Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. St Cuthbert's sits on these lands and it is our collective responsibility to honour and respect those who have gone before us, those who are here, and those who have yet to come. We are grateful for the opportunity to be living, working, and serving on this land.  We recognize that Oakville resides on the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, part of the Anishinaabe nation. Oakville is covered by two treaties – Treaty #14 The Head of the Lake Treaty of 1806 and Treaty #22 the 12 Mile Creek, 16 Mile Creek and the River Credit reserve treaty of 1820.
