In these challenging times, it may seem, for some, that the Church or that God has abandoned us. In his weekly message, Archbishop Albert reminds us that God is still very much with and within each one of us, and that we are to focus, especially in these desert times, on being truly and fully a domestic Church. The Church is not abandoning us. We are Church. God is with us.
In the coming weeks, Archbishop Albert would like to hear your questions. In these times of social isolation, our minds can be lead to ponder the big, important questions on life. Please send us your questions, those big questions dwelling in your heart, and Archbishop Albert will answer them through short daily reflexions in the coming weeks.

IMPORTANT Message from Bishop LeGatt Regarding the NEW Coronavirus Protocol
IMPORTANT message from Archbishop LeGatt regarding the NEW archdiocesan protocol aiming to ensure the safety of all in the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, in light of the developing COVID-19 pandemic.
Please keep all vulnerable peoples, the sick, healthcare workers, and other essential workers in your thoughts and prayers throughout these trying times.
Pandemic Preparation Liturgical Protocol No. III for the novel coronavirus COVID-19
In light of the current concerns about a markedly increased risk of infection from the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface has decided to implement a NEW protocol which builds upon previous protocols. This protocol is effective immediately and will be maintained until such time as the Archdiocese indicates that it is returning to the regular liturgical practice.
In essence, it provides for the cancellation of assemblies for Sunday Masses, including Holy Week celebrations, as well as weekday Mass assemblies. The protocol also contains guidelines on sacramental preparation, weddings, funerals, and parish meetings and gatherings.
