A First for the Archdiocese of St. Boniface
The idea of developing the property, located on Leola Street, was originally pitched not long after the closure of the parish on July 31, 2016. Nearly three years later, the project will be presented to the East Kildonan-Transcona Community Committee at its March 19 meeting.
If the committee and residents approve the project, named Leola Village, the property will be subdivided and rezoned to allow the construction of multi-family units.

New website - National Week for Life and the Family
In Manitoba, the National Week for Life and the Family Tri-Diocesan Committee promotes several events and actively works to enrich faith and community throughout the National week in May, but also extends the celebration to both before and following the National week (May 12-19, 2019).
Every year the committee focuses on a new topic and theme that is pertinent to the Church and families today. The theme for 2019 is: "Listening to the Gospel as a Family".
This year’s focus on “renewing the family bond” will have two main elements – “Receiving the Gospel” and “Sharing the Gospel”. Most notably through Lectio Divina, the reading and sharing of the Word of God as a family.
To help with this work, the committee has launched a new website: lifeandthefamily.com You will find resources, our events calendar, bulletin inserts, news and blog articles, and more information about the National Week for Life and the Family. It will serve as a "hub" for the NWLF in southern Manitoba, involving the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, Archdiocese of St. Boniface, and Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg.
