As well as supporting the move to say ‘sorry’ the statement issued by the Brothers re-affirmed their commitment to the Edmund Rice National Statement of Reconciliation which binds them to:-
- acknowledge Australia’s Indigenous peoples as the first peoples of this land
- build respectful relationships
- develop partnerships between Indigenous peoples and non-indigenous peoples
- celebrate Australia’s unique cultures.
The full text of the statement is available for download at the Edmund Rice Oceania website
