Bishop LeGatt: 2021 National Week for Life and Family

In this National Week for Life and Family, Archbishop Albert reflects on the intrinsic and fundamental value of every human life. It can sometimes seem that when someone is struggling, or cannot contribute as much as they’d like, that they may be leaning more on the help and support of others that they may be a burden to those around them. But Archbishop Albert invites us to change our perspective on this: holding each other up, helping each other grow, thrive, especially in our time of most need, isn’t a burden, but is, truly, what makes us fundamentally human. Each human life truly is gift. As each life is the fruit of a thought of God, and each human person was created to be loved and to love, let us reflect on the part we can play, especially in this National Week for Life and Family, in continuing to protect the dignity, sanctity and value of each human life, from conception to natural death, and every step in between.

The Archdiocese of St. Boniface consults francophone Catholics

Bishop LeGatt - May: The Month of Mary

Today, Archbishop Albert recalls some of the main ideas that came out of this week’s annual (virtual) priests’ retreat: what is our message? (faith), so what? (hope), and what now? (love).
He also takes a moment to reflect on the important role of Mary in this month of Mary, especially as Pope Francis is calling the universal Church to a marathon of prayer for the end of this pandemic: you are invited to join the universal Church reciting a Rosary per day. And let us also think of our mothers, who, like Mary, are a reflection of God’s love for us. Happy Mothers’ Day!
Thus, let us, together, join in praying to Mary, the Mother of God and the Mother of Mothers, in a special way in this month of Mary, as we approach Mothers’ Day, and as we hope for an end to this pandemic. Hail Mary….

New Reporting System for Sexual Abuse or Cover-up by a Bishop

On May 6, the Bishops of Canada launched a national, bilingual service for reporting situations of sexual abuse either committed or covered-up by a Bishop. This service furthers their commitment to responsibility, accountability and transparency in matters of clergy sexual abuse and their commitment to facilitate healing and justice for victims-survivors.

Bishop LeGatt: The vaccine is a corporal work of mercy

As we enter the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Manitoba, it may be demoralizing to see the restrictions intensify again. But we must continue to look to the big plan: we must always remember that we will eventually return to normal, and that at some point we will finally be able to benefit from all our current efforts to limit the spread of the virus.
In his message for this week, bishop Albert calls us to be vaccinated: this corporal work of mercy is a tangible gesture towards the protection of the sanctity of life and contributes directly to the health and safety of all. In our present times, getting vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus (once you are eligible) is truly a tangible, practical gesture of love for your neighbour. God calls us every day to love our neighbour, and now more than ever, it means getting vaccinated, practicing social distancing and other ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of the virus.
As we continue to walk through the ups and downs of this pandemic, let us always continue to seek the best for our neighbour, to seek to discover God in our neighbour, and continue to be a people of hope. In this Easter season, more than ever, let us remember that we are a Paschal people, and that the Hallelujah is our song.
