Pope Francis Canada 2022 – Walking Together

Pope Francis apologized to the Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

On July 25, in his first public event in Canada, Pope Francis addressed representatives of Indigenous Peoples of the First Nations, the Métis and the Inuit gathered in Maskwacis Park, near Edmonton. In his poignant speech, he again implores forgiveness for the evils committed by many Christians against the Indigenous Peoples in Canada in the residential school system.
