I think you just mean "catholicism"
Residential schools weren't a Catholic thing. Some may have been run by the Church, but they were a government-developed program. Government-sponsored ethnic... cleansing? I think that's the right word to describe the desire to scrub native people of the languages, traditions, beliefs, and community structure.
