Novena Prayers to the Canadian Martyrs
For Those Hurt by Residential Schools
Many little Indigenous children were badly hurt by the Church and by the Federal Government in the Residential School system. We settlers tried to force them to become like us. In the process, we took away their culture, their language, their spirituality, their family life, and their self-esteem. We repent and we seek reconciliation.
Join us in a Novena (9 days of prayer) to the Canadian Martyrs praying that our repentance be sincere, our conversion be genuine, and real reconciliation happen.
Below you will find the downloadable Novena Prayers for each day.
