*NEW* Honouring the Spirit of 1817: Commemorating the Selkirk Treaty – Sunday, July 16, 2017

The Peguis Selkirk Treaty signed July 18, 1817 represented “peace, order and mutual cooperation”. This is the first treaty signed between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples in Western Canada. It shaped not only Winnipeg and Manitoba but also the nation itself. In today’s spirit of reconciliation, a committee of 35 volunteers, including representatives of the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, is Honouring the Spirit of 1817 by commemorating The Peguis Selkirk Treaty in a week-long series of events in the presence of the current Lord Selkirk from England. There will be an Ecumenical Prayer Service on Sunday, July 16, 2017, at 3 PM at the St. Boniface Cathedral, organized by the Catholic, Anglican and Presbyterian Churches. All are invited to join in praying for renewed and ever stronger ties of friendship and mutual support between all peoples of our land. For more information, view the website:


*NEW* Pray with the Saints of Canada for the 150th Anniversary

Monthly Prayer Intentions of Pope Francis

*NEW* Pope’s Prayer Intentions for July 2017

Evangelization: That Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.



*NEW* Stewardship Reflection

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 2, 2017

“…whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me.” Matthew 10:38

Pope Benedict XVI said “The world offers you comfort. But you were not made for comfort, you were made for greatness”. “Comfort” puts me first. “Picking up your cross and following Jesus” puts God and others first. Why settle for comfort when you can achieve greatness? Pick up your cross, ask Jesus for guidance on using your gifts and live the life God intended for you!
