Our Faith Stories, Treasures to Share : 2020
On the weekend of February 9, a new initiative called the Day of Prayer for Canadian Home Missions will be adopted by our Archdiocese. The faithful can therefore offer prayer together and bring strength to fellow Canadian Catholics and their missionaries.
A special collection to raise funds for Catholic Missions in Canada, will also be allocated to help Canadian Bishops, including Bishop Albert LeGatt, subsidize the costs of maintaining and sustaining their missionaries and missions. In this new Faith Story, Father Antonysamy Savarimuthu, the pastor of St. John Bosco Parish in Poplar River, explains how Catholic Missions in Canada helped the faithful renew their parish infrastructure.
