“It is with humility and in great sorrow that we come before God and our Aboriginal brothers and sisters with our confession.”
The Confession of The Presbyterian Church in Canada is a statement that was adopted by the General Assembly on June 9, 1994. It acknowledges the harm that we have done, addresses our insensitivity to Indigenous cultures and our past involvement in the residential school system, and asks for forgiveness from God and Indigenous people, so that we may walk with Indigenous people to find healing and wholeness together as God’s people.
The Confession is translated into Dakota, English, French, Korean, Ojibwe, Plains Cree, and now newly translated into Mandarin. All the translations are together in one booklet.
