An Evensong Service of Lament:
Remembering the Victims of the Indian Boarding Schools
The people of St. Gabriel Episcopal Church invite you to join with us in an Evensong Service of Lament Remembering the Victims of the Indian Boarding Schools. Through words and music, sounds and silence, we will grieve the Native children, families, and communities who were victims of the boarding schools, acknowledge the ongoing intergenerational trauma and commit ourselves to the work of truth and reconciliation with the Indigenous communities in the church.

This service will be in-person as well as on YouTube live.
“We are grieved by recent discoveries of mass graves of Indigenous children on the grounds of former boarding schools, where Indigenous children experienced forced removal from their homes, assimilation and abuse. These acts of cultural genocide sought to erase these children’s identities as God’s beloved children.”
