Indian Tribes Pledge their Loyalty to Pope and King

Large delegations of the Ojihway, Ottawa and Potawatomi tribes pledged their loyalty to Pope Pius XII and to King George VI at the first Indian Catholic Congress in Ontario.

The Congress commemorated the arrival of the first missionaries among the Indians of the Northwest. Following Solemn Pontifical Mass on the third day of the Congress, celebrated by Mgr. Ralph H. Dignan, Bishop of Sault Ste. Marie, chiefs and sub-chiefs of the various tribes signed a resolution to be forwarded to the Pope.

" We pledge anew our loyalty to the Holy See and our personal devotion to Your Holiness," the resolution said. " We will constantly pray that God's holy will may be fulfilled in all things, and that His reign of peace may swiftly be restored to a troubled world."
