Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Call to Action 59

We call upon church parties to the Settlement Agreement to develop ongoing education strategies to ensure that their respective congregations learn about their church’s role in colonization, the history and legacy of residential schools, and why apologies to former residential school students, their families, and communities were necessary.

Note by Kate: I'm pleased to say that two denominations on Manitoulin Island have already or will soon be holding open discussion groups about the TRC's Calls to Action. I did not get to the first series offered by Island Anglican churches, but I hope to get to the upcoming series offered by Knox United Church in Manitowaning.
