Walking With and For Jesus - The Holy Redeemer Way of the Cross

Some 80 worshipers from Holy Redeemer Parish in Winnipeg and parishes from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface and the Ukrainian Archeparchy of Winnipeg demonstrated their faith by walking the Good Friday Way of the Cross.
"Walking with and for Jesus on Good Friday is a tradition at Holy Redeemer," noted the pastor, Br. Arockiadoss Savurimuthu.
The faithful visited the Douglas Mennonite Church, where they were welcomed with the cross in the church sanctuary. "It's a beautiful tradition of Holy Week," said Pastor Don Rempel-Boschman, "Praying together in recognition of the salvation brought by Christ, what's more unifying?"
Then, the group was welcomed by the faithful of St. Anne Ukrainian Catholic Parish, where they prayed to the Virgin and recited some prayers led by Reverend Father Mark Gnutel. The cross was also presented to the senior shut-ins of Donwood Manor. "I have been a deacon at Holy Redeemer for 25 years, and the Way of the Cross has always been part of our parish life. I'm grateful for the work of the Liturgy Committee, the Knights of Columbus and Father Doss."

A look at this year's Chrism Mass

More than 700 of the faithful attended the Chrism Mass, presided on April 16 by Bishop Albert LeGatt, Archbishop of St. Boniface.

A solemn and intimate event, the Chrism Mass saw Bishop LeGatt bless the oil of the catechumens and the oil for the sacrament of the sick, as well as consecrate the holy chrism, used for baptism, confirmation and the ordination of the priests.

More than fifty priests were on hand to renew their priestly vows. Representatives of the parishes, religious communities and health care institutions were also present to receive the holy oils to bring them back to their respective circles.

Canadian Bishops : sympathies and prayers

The April 15 fire that devastated the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris sent shock waves across the world among Catholics, as well as lovers of beauty and history.

The Most Rev. Lionel Gendron, Bishop of Saint-Jean-Longueuil and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) wrote to His Excellency the Most Rev. Michel Aupetit, Archbishop of Paris, conveying the sympathies and prayers of the Bishops of Canada following the fire. To read the letter click here or on photo.

In Winnipeg, Rabbi Anibal Ashira Mass of Shaarey Zedek Synagogue expressed his grief:

"As I was watching in disbelief the news about the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, I could only imagine the profound pain the loss of such an iconic symbol of the Catholic Church generates to the Catholic world. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with all my Catholic brothers and sisters around the world in this holy time of the year."
