Mourning 215 Children of Kamloops Residential School

It is with great sadness we mourn the 215 children discovered buried at the Kamloops Indian Residential School. We extend our condolences and prayers to the families of the victims and their communities, the BC Nation of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc, and all Indian Residential School Survivors and their descendants grieving this discovery. It is unnatural to be unable to gather together to comfort one another in times of profound grief, and words alone cannot express the continuing impact the Residential Schools have on our families and communities. Our hearts mourn this atrocity. We raise our prayers up as we stand with the BC First Nations to honour the children whose lives were lost.
The IRS Crisis Line is available 24-hours a day for anyone experiencing pain or distress as a result of their Residential School experience: 1-866-925-4419
