Merry Christmas!


Joy to the World!


In Advent, we anticipate the arrival of our Saviour Jesus Christ as an infant in the arms of Mary and Joseph, and his triumphant return to gather us home. As we celebrate the peace and hope which enters our world through this holy family, discover how our own families can become radiant centres of Christian faith for the world in this Franciscan at Home workshop. For details, see your parish catechism coordinator or contact the Office of Faith Formation.

Indigenous Peoples and the Church:

Walking Together Toward Healing and Reconciliation


Beginning on Sunday, November 21, the Solemnity of Christ the King, the CCCB will release a video recording of a Bishop in Canada reflecting on the Gospel Reading for each Sunday of Advent. This year’s reflections were developed in view of the Indigenous Delegation which will be travelling to Rome to meet with Pope Francis from December 17 to 20, 2021. Each reflection is based one of the five essential stages of reconciliation: examen, confession, repentance, reparation (making amends), and reconciliation. Likewise, it is hoped these reflections will assist the faithful, Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike, in preparing for Pope Francis’ eventual apostolic journey to Canada.
