Ten Sisters of St Ann and two archivists participated in the Truth and Reconciliation National Event held in Vancouver in September 2013. They hoped to contribute to the healing and reconciliation of former students of the Indian residential schools by expressions of regret for the pain suffered by many. Photographs from the schools were shared, copies were available, and the former students appreciated being heard and understood.
