*NEW* Synod 2018 – Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment
“A better world can be built also as a result of your efforts, your desire to change and your generosity. Do not be afraid to listen to the Spirit who proposes bold choices; do not delay when your conscience asks you to take risks in following the Master. The Church also wishes to listen to your voice, your sensitivities and your faith; even your doubts and your criticism. Make your voice heard, let it resonate in communities and let it be heard by your shepherds of souls.” Pope Francis.

News from the CCCB

(Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops) 

*NEW* Personal prayer card for consecration to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The CCCB has prepared a short version of the prayer of consecration to Mary for personal use. The prayer card is among the resources the CCCB has prepared for the consecration of Canada to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary during celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation. As announced this past 28 April, each Bishop is invited to consecrate his individual diocese or eparchy on 1 July 2017 or at another date thereabouts that might better suit the local pastoral situation. Similarly, a Bishop may choose to invite pastors to consecrate their specific parish or mission as part of the celebrations marking the anniversary of Confederation. The prayer card has a full-colour reproduction of the painting "Notre-Dame du Canada" by the late Quebec artist Marius Dubois. On the back is printed the personal prayer of consecration in English and French. The prayer card can be purchased in packs of 50 by placing an order through CCCB Publications by phone (1-800-769-1147), by fax (613-241-5090), by email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

*NEW* Stewardship Reflection

Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) – Sunday, June 18, 2017

“Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.”  1 Corinthians 10:17

As disciples of Jesus, we are called to lead holy lives and invite others to join us. Living a stewardship lifestyle, being grateful and generous with our gifts, serves a twofold purpose. One, it helps build God’s kingdom here on earth. Two, it is a road map to Heaven. Let’s help each other get there!

12th Sunday of Ordinary Times – Sunday, June 25, 2017

“Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.” Matthew 10:32

Do you share your Catholic faith with others? Do you defend your Catholic faith or do you remain silent when the situation arises? Do you pray in public before meals? Pray for the strength and courage to be a joyful witness of our Catholic faith when the opportunity presents itself.
