"It is a great joy for me to be here today, near to the Red River, in this very historic area, of course to celebrate these 200 years of evangelization in Western and Northen Canada, here where for over 7 000 years - and maybe even longer - Indigenous Peoples have regularly gathered to trade, share and work. Link to Message from Cardinal Lacroix.
"When Bishop #Provencher first came, he said: 'What an expanse!', and he chose as his motto: 'And the desert will flourish'. The desert will flower with faith and with the life of the Church. And he came to love this land, and especially to love its peoples."
-Archbishop Albert LeGatt
