Bishop Fauquier Memorial Chapel

One of the most repeated or catchphrases used by survivors when asked about how they felt in the Chapel (Bishop Fauquier Memorial Chapel) is 'safe and secure'. All what was happening over in the main building was a non-issue while you were in the Chapel.  It is of paramount importance this site be preserved for its history and its relationship to education and liaison with our Aboriginal cultures and all generations to come."
