Mass of Chrism, Saint Mary`s Basilica Cathedral April 15 at 12:00pm

Sharron Reil Chrism symbolThe Chrism Mass is held during Holy Week in every Catholic diocese. During this Mass, the priests, deacons and representatives of the entire diocesan community gather around their bishop, who blesses the Holy Oils for use in the coming year. These are: Oil of the Sick, Oil of Catechumens, Sacred Chrism.

Whenever the Holy Oils are used in a diocese, the ministry of the bishop who consecrated them is symbolically present. The Chrism Mass reminds us of our oneness in Christ through Baptism and its holy anointing, made possible by the ministry of the bishop and his priests.

Transformation: Thinking Beyond The Pews!

transformation transpartent 250x113Everyone has heard the saying, "Let's think outside of the box!" Here in the Archdiocese we'd like to invite people to think beyond the pews! During the Transformation process the Archbishop has received feedback from many Catholics around the Archdiocese. This feedback has come from people in our pews. What about those baptized Catholics who are not in the pews each Sunday? They're Catholic too!

World Youth Day 2014

palm sunday  WYD 2014 outlineThis Sunday, as we commemorate Palm Sunday and Jesus' journey to Jerusalem, young Catholics around the world celebrate their Christian commitment and desire to follow Jesus through World Youth Day (WYD), which has been celebrated on Palm Sunday each year since 1984. Some World Youth Days have been celebrated on a grander scale every 2 or 3 years when young people make a special pilgrimage to a particular country selected by the Pope. There they gather with the Holy Father for prayer, catechesis and fellowship.

Welcome NET!


Youth DancingFor the past week NET (National Evangelization Team) Ministries of Canada has been travelling around the Archdiocese leading retreats for the youth in our parishes. NET challenges young Catholics to enter into a personal relationship with Christ and invites them to become more active in the life of the Church. This weekend the team will help to animate our two World Youth Day/Palm Sunday events. We are very happy to have them here to help transmit the faith to our youth.
