St. Gregory, together with CDSBEO join in solidarity with the people of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation in Kamloops, BC, and all Indigenous people across Turtle Island.
To honour the 215 children:
• All flags in the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario will be flown at half-mast from May 31st to June 8th
• All CDSBEO communities are encouraged to join a National gathering in wearing orange on May 31st;
• All CDSBEO communities are invited to follow the lead of the Anishinabek Nation by placing a teddy bear on porches tonight at 6 pm with a porch light left on.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all Indigenous people.
