Spreading the joy of the Gospel, one guitar strum at a time
Well known for his love of country and gospel music, Father Armand Le Gal, omi, will once again take guitar in hand to give a concert at a local parish – this time at Christ the King parish on February 9. An event that gives us an opportunity to get to know how music has played a role in his personal and priestly life.
On suicide, and helping those who suffer in silence
As Catholics, we used to focus only on the idea of suicide as a mortal sin. It is still morally wrong and grave matter, but recent research shows however that most suicides are associated with some form of clinical depression.
For Deacon Gilles Urquhart, who will be giving a talk on suicide at the next Spirit Night, this is a key consideration in how Catholics ought to broach the subject and, more importantly, approach friends, family, parishioners and other people who may be suffering to the point of considering taking their own lives. Read the Full Story
Spirit Night: ‘Suicide: A Pastoral Perspective’, an evening of prayer and teaching, will be held from 7 to 9 PM on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Villa Aulneau, at 330-601 Aulneau St, Winnipeg. Ask for Sr. Bilodeau at the front desk. Fellowship and refreshments to follow. Everyone welcome.

Answering Christ's Call
One only has to consult the diocesan Events Calendar or the diocesan Weekly News to see how many ways there are to answer Christ's call. Some, like our eight seminarians, have answered that call in a particular way. But what about the rest of us? Who are we called to be? To help clear some uncertainty, Father Mike Schmitz reminds us that God has a vision for our lives. To view video, click here or click on photo.
The Good Shepherd Campaign 2018
Thank you to all those of you who have made a gift to the 2018 Good Shepherd Campaign! As of January 8, 2019, we have collected over $175,000. If you have not yet made your donation, please consider doing so by January 31, 2019, the Archdiocese’s year-end, to help reach the goal of $250,000 in support of vocations.
Paul Nguyen, one of the Archdiocese’s eight seminarians, shares: “I am sincerely grateful for your precious support, which is nourishing my priestly vocation day by day.” The support you provide your faith community through your gifts and prayers makes a real difference to him and to so many others.
In his Gospel, St. Luke reminds us: “Give and gifts will be given unto you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” (6:38) Thank you for giving your just measure!
Please continue to pray for vocations in our archdiocese, for our seminarians,
for our clergy and all our missionary disciples.
