Should the Pope Apologize for Residential Schools?

When:  October 25 • Thursday • 1:30 – 3PM
Where: Central Lions Seniors Association, 11113 – 113 St, Edmonton

We will explore and discuss the relationship between Roman Catholic religious communities, the Papacy, the Canadian government, and the legacy of residential schools. What is behind the demands? What are the consequences? What is the meaning of “apology” in light of the struggle for reconciliation?
