 As Bishop of Fredericton, I want to re-emphasize my endorsement of the Primate’s statement (Every Child Matters) concerning recent discoveries about residential schools.

This statement also represents my feelings of shame and horror concerning the activities towards Indigenous peoples, by the New England Company and its agents in parts of our province during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The article A Comment on the Colonial Perversion of British Benevolence, by Judith Fingard, indicates the involvement of some of the early Anglican settlers in this enterprise.   

Please pray for all those affected by these issues past and present across our country.
