The Door is Always Open: Chat with the Bishop for Separated or Divorced  Sunday, April 7, 2019

Separation and Divorce have touched and affected many Catholic individuals and families. How can we, as a Catholic community, offer spiritual and practical help for these members of our Church, and give hope to those recovering from separation and divorce? In his encyclical Familiaris Consortio, Saint John Paul II urged “I earnestly call upon pastors and the whole community of the faithful to help the divorced and with solicitous care, to make sure that they do not consider themselves as separated from the Church, for as baptized persons they can and indeed must share in her life.” In this spirit, His Grace, Archbishop Albert LeGatt would like to invite all members of our Church family who are separated or divorced to an afternoon to chat and ask questions, share about their needs, receive some guidance from the Church, and learn about the supports and resources available to them. This informal afternoon gathering will take place on April 7 from 2 PM to 4 PM at the Saint Boniface Diocesan Centre, 151 de la Cathédrale Avenue.

"Come and See": What is it like to study to become a priest?

Saturday, March 9, 2019

“Come and See” is a day for young men to come and see what it is like to study to become a priest and to see what the life of a priest is like. This day is for any young man who has even the faintest sense of an attraction to the priesthood and is meant to be a day to respond to any questions or expectations you may have about the priesthood. Come to see different aspects of seminary life and what it takes to be formed into a shepherd for the Church. Come to support and build fraternity among young men open to God’s call. The event will take place at the Archbishop’s Residence, 151 avenue de la Cathédrale, Winnipeg, on Saturday, March 9 from 10 AM until 3 PM. For more information and to register, please contact Fr. Joshua Gundrum, the Archdiocesan Vocations Director at     204-482-4197 or ststanislaus@mymts.net.

World Day for Consecrated Life
Friday, February 2, 2019


A Taizé prayer service for World Day for Consecrated Life will be held on Saturday evening, February 2 at 7 PM at St. Boniface Cathedral. The purpose of World Day for Consecrated Life is to pray for women and men religious, and to give thanks for the gift of religious life. This year, we will also acknowledge the many contributions of the Sisters of Charity of Montreal (Grey Nuns). The Grey Nuns were the first religious to arrive at the Red River settlement in 1844. Over 175 years, the Grey Nuns have made an immense contribution towards building the Church in Saint Boniface and throughout western/northern Canada. To say nothing of building the health systems, education systems, and social service systems in Canada and other parts of the world.
