NEW - A Video Message from Archbishop LeGatt
Vandalism, violence against places of worship and people of faith - here in Manitoba and all over the world. How are we as Christians to react to all this?
In his video message for June, Archbishop LeGatt calls us to pray for a change of heart, attitude and spirit in the people who vandalized the church in St. Francis Xavier in late May. He urges Christians and all people of faith to call for respect in our society, and to remind our governments and the general public that such hateful acts are not allowed and cannot be allowed.
Most importantly, Bishop LeGatt asks that all Christian churchs and people of faith speak out against hatred, and that they support each other in dialogue and mutual understanding, in order that together and with the grace of God, they - and we - may become peacemakers.
