Prayer on Orange Shirt Day
Your creation explodes with the colours of the rainbow
Your peoples reveal the beauty of diversity
We remember today when the joy and dignity of a precious child was destroyed.
We lament today for the childhoods lost through the residential school system.
We mourn for the spirits crushed and the futures compromised.
Celebrate the hope and joy of every child
Tell the stories of resistance that make us stronger
Build the bonds of solidarity to ensure “never again”
In the name of the one who was child among us
Liturgy and Orange Shirt Day
On Friday we will have our Truth and Reconciliation Liturgy at 10 am. Students are also encouraged to wear orange shirts to remember and honour the children who attended Residential Schools. Our school has also raised the Every Child Matters flag for Truth and Reconciliation Week.
