Archbishop LeGatt - On Supporting Each Others' Mental Health and Well-Being

As the first month of the year has already come to a close, Archbishop LeGatt proposes a reflection focusing on mental health. Indeed, these darkest and coldest days of the year bring with them a particular toll on our mental health, and now more than ever, it is important for us to reflect on mental health and on the wellbeing of those around us. Let us seek each other out, therefore, care for each other, and be particularly compassionate with each other, being Christ’s light and hope for each other, even in the darkest of times.

Archbishop LeGatt on Powerlessness While Facing War

Considering the immense suffering that people across the world are experiencing, through war, famine, and catastrophe impacting all corners of our planet, Archbishop Albert shares with us a reflection on how we can respond. Truly, it could be all too tempting to become apathetic in the face of our own helplessness regarding worldwide crises. However, we are not helpless, and must all be actively committed to peace and unity, abroad as much as here at home. Truly, let us pray: God, without you, we can do nothing. But, give us the strength, then, to be your servants, here, now, where we are. Lord, may your Kingdom come.

Archbishop LeGatt - Two Paths Towards Solidarity With the Indigenous

In this first of a series of videos on how we can all become more aware of the past and present realities of Indigenous people, with the goal of reaching out to the Indigenous in friendship and justice, Bishop LeGatt proposes two initiatives that, serving as potential first steps, can help us come closer to walking together with Indigenous people, here at home.
The first is the "Listening to Indigenous Voices" program, which will first be offered in French, starting Thursday October 5 at Saints-Martyrs-Canadiens parish (Look forward to an English language opportunity in the New Year!). These eight meetings, led by Oblate Brother Thomas Novak, are an invitation to deepen our knowledge and open our hearts.
For more information or to register, visit the "Walking Together" section of the diocesan website, www.archsaintboniface.ca  And if you're already interested, contact Daniel Bahuaud at 204-594-0277 or communications@archsaintboniface.ca to register.
The second initiative is the online course "4 Seasons of Reconciliation". This course takes about three hours, to complete, but everyone can follow it at their own pace. The Archdiocese has secured sixty places, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Again, for more information or to register for this course, contact Daniel Bahuaud at 204-594-0277 or communications@archsaintboniface.ca

Archbishop LeGatt - Finding Rest Even When Busy

As the summer holidays slowly come to an end, and a return to a normal pace of work resumes this Fall, Archbishop Albert proposes a reflection on the importance of rest, and rhythm. Indeed, while the summer months can be a time of rest and relaxation for many, as normal work life resumes, it can be challenging to maintain a healthy pace. Just like the human heart, we must rest between beats, and even when business resumes, we must continue to intentionally make times of sheer silence, internally, and through these moments of profound silence, be still with God.
Also, Archbishop Albert expressed a closeness in spirit and in prayer with the people of Maui, currently facing the devastating effects of forest fires, and tragic loss of life. Please join him in praying for these, as well as for those here in Canada, namely in Alberta and in the Northwest Territories, also facing the threat of wildfires.

Archbishop LeGatt - The Next Five Years

Having celebrated the milestone of his 70th birthday, Archbishop LeGatt reflects on what is to come. Indeed, all bishops are required to submit their resignation to the Holy Father at the age of 75. Given this, Archbishop Albert shares with us his priorities for the remaining five years of his service to our local Church, including Households of Faith, the solidification of a local priesthood (for all priests, including those who were born elsewhere), continuing to build a strong relationship with our friends at the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, and to make one last pastoral visit to each and every parish and mission in the diocese. Truly, his ministry here has been a blessed time for Archbishop Albert, and he looks forward to what is to come with the people of Saint-Boniface!
