St, Giles Anglican Church is deeply saddened to learn that the remains of 215 children have been found in unmarked graves at the site of the residential school in Kamloops, BC.

139 schools were running in Canada from 1831 to 1996. An estimated 150, 000 Indigenous children were taken to these schools.

An estimated 6,000 children died at these schools and countless numbers were severely abused.

Please learn more about the Residential School System as well as the involvement of the Anglican Church of Canada. Check out the Truth and Reconciliation page on the Anglican Church of Canada's website - - www.anglican.ca/tr

Archdeacon Wilma can also give you resources to learn more about residential schools.

Diligent guardians of God’s good earth

This year our province was hit with a heavy, wet snowstorm in the middle of April. In the days that followed, if someone complained about the cold winds or sloppy snow the response was often “It’s good for the land. We need the moisture.” We see in this exchange ...  Click here to read more

Latest update from Bishop Rob:

Greetings in the name of our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ! I hope and pray you are well. This coming Sunday the Gospel (John 15:1-8) reminds us of the importance of abiding in Christ the true vine and, in that abiding, to bear much fruit. Some might be lulled into thinking that during this pandemic not much is happening, rather the opposite. I am so thankful for both the up-front and behind the scenes, fruit bearing ministries that continue in our diocese.
