Bishop LeGatt: Lent, A Time to Die to Oneself
This week, we are once again embarking in the holy season of Lent: a season of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the Paschal mysteries. But this year, we have lived an entire year of the sacrifice and fasting of Lent, and we have given up a lot more than just sweets or things of the like. As we continue in fraternal charity and love to respect sanitation requirements, let us continue to die to ourselves, and in doing so, resemble our Christ on the cross more and more, who freely gave his life for us.
“COVID-19 Update for Religious Services” – New Version
The communications department has received several requests for clarifications since the new Code Red Alert restrictions came into effect on February 12th. Here, then, is a new version of the "COVID-19 Update for Religious Services" document. Among the changes, the document provides further clarifications concerning the premises and spaces dedicated to celebrating Mass. As well, further clarifications are made about baptisms, weddings and funerals, religious services, the composition of liturgical and technical teams, as well as the reception of the Eucharist outside of Mass.To read COVID-19 Update for Religious Services, click here. or on photo.

Bishop LeGatt: Let Us Pray for Each Other
Bishop LeGatt - Ordinary Time: Far from Ordinary!
We are now in Ordinary time, according to the liturgical calendar. But this period of time - the longest period of the liturgical year, stretching for a total of 32 Sundays - is far from ordinary or boring: rather, it is ordained. This is time to bring Christ into our everyday lives, into our everyday joys and toils, for us to daily come to know Christ, to be with Him, and He with us. With Him, through this pandemic, not only will we get through it, but we will bring the Truth of what we live, as Christians, into the world: not only in the hilltop moments that punctuate our lives (as the liturgical calendar), but in the beauty of everyday life.
Bishop LeGatt: "That they may be one."
Following the week of prayer for Christian Unity, which spanned from January 18th to 25th, Archbishop Albert invites us to reflect on what Christian unity truly means today. Please take some time to pray, that we may be one, as God is one. May we find strength in our common ground, and continue, together, to build up the Kingdom of God.
Bishop LeGatt: 2021 is a Year for Resilience
Truly, 2020 has been a year we will never forget. And all will not change in 2021. In his New Years message, Archbishop Albert invites us to dig deeper in 2021, and find new sources for our hope, especially within our family.
Truly, Christ is with us. From all of us at the Archdiocese of Saint-Boniface, we wish you and yours a truly blessed 2021.
