Attuned to Saskatchewan Catholics’ desire to offer comfort and friendship to James Smith Cree Nation in the aftermath of the heart-breaking stabbing spree on Sept. 4, religious leaders sought to identify potential pathways of support.

“The tragic events of the past days call for a deep solidarity with First Nations,” said Regina Archbishop Donald Bolen in an email. “We can strive to be there for First Nations communities, attentive to their wounds and grateful for the beauty and wisdom of their traditions.”

Much was needed in the days following the horrific attacks that claimed the lives of 10 people from James Smith and nearby Weldon, Sask. Another 18 were injured in the attacks.

The two men accused of carrying out the attacks, brothers Damien and Myles Sanderson, also died. Damien was found dead the day after the attacks and Myles went into “medical distress” shortly after being arrested Sept. 7 following a high-speed chase, according to the RCMP.

Bolen wrote Catholics are prepared to remain present in service to James Smith community members going forward.
