General Secretary Michael Pollesel has written a new update on the Anglican Church of Canada’s work to support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) on residential schools. This fifth installment in the series covers these topics:
- First public national TRC event a success
- Ongoing support for healing and right relations
- Archives essential behind the scenes
This new series of TRC updates was started in May 2010 by Archdeacon Jim Boyles, who recently served General Synod as a consultant on residential schools.
From 1993 to 2005, Archdeacon Boyles served as general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada and represented the church during the negotiations with the federal government that led to the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. During that time of negotiations, Archdeacon Boyles wrote a popular series of “Residential Schools updates.”
These new TRC updates, now written by Archdeacon Pollesel, continue in the same tradition. They are intended to be a quick go-to for all Anglicans interested in following their church’s ongoing work to promote healing and right relations between Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals.
