CWN Editor's Note: “I extend my sincere apology for the involvement of the Catholic Church in the residential school system, and I pray for healing as the church in Canada walks the path of reconciliation with the indigenous people in our community,” said Archbishop Marcel Damphousse of Ottawa-Cornwall, who has led the archdiocese since December 2020. “I add my voice to those who are asking the Holy Father for an apology to indigenous peoples.”
