Collection for the Needs of the Canadian Church…

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is the national assembly of Catholic Bishops. Contributing to this collection is an act of collaboration with the Bishops in their ministry of teaching, sanctifying and pastoral governance.

“Challenges and favours which the Lord gives…are the way by which he wanted his Church founded and established by the Apostles and Disciples. This is the same grace he has made to the Church in Canada, by which it has taken all its force and growth, and is sustained and maintained by patience and long-suffering in peace and union with Our Lord, all he is pleased to permit.” – St. Francois de Laval, first Bishop of New France, from a letter to the Vicar General of the Diocese of Quebec, 15 February 1686. Your generosity is appreciated.

Bearing Witness- Jubilee for Catechists – Celebrating the witnesses of Catholic

Merciful the Father“Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses.” (Pope Paul VI)

This weekend we celebrate the witnesses of Catholic faith in our parish. What is a Catechist? A catechist is a witness and a saint committed to an intense and prayerful spiritual life. A catechist also has a great love for Jesus and serves as a person to persons. A catechist’s work must bear witness to Christ’s love and points us in the direction of Christ.
