Pope Francis Visits Canada To Meet With Indigenous Communities

QUEBEC, CANADA - JULY 27: Surrounded by securityPope Francis rides in the "Popemobile" as he tours the Plains of Abraham on July 27, 2022 in Quebec, Canada. Pope Francis is traveling across Canada for a “pilgrimage of penance,” to meet with and apologize to Indigenous communities for the abuse at Catholic-run residential schools, where more than 150,000 indigenous children were forcibly enrolled for more than 100 years. Called a “cultural genocide” by the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the school system was created to isolate Indigenous children from their own native culture and religion in order to assimilate them into the dominant Christian culture.
