Invitation to Pray for Peace from Archbishop Mancini - Oct 3, 2014

                                                                                   August 22, 2014

Dear Friends,cathedral dove

            In recent weeks we have heard numerous reports of the suffering of the people in Gaza, Iraq and Syria. In response to these reports, Archbishop Paul-André Durocher, President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) invited his fellow Canadian Bishops to encourage their clergy, consecrated persons and all the faithful of their diocese to pray for the people of not only these specific areas, but all the Middle East.

            In Pope Francis’ Angelus prayer of July 20th, he said, “May the God of peace create in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence is not conquered with violence. Violence is conquered with peace! Let us pray in silence, asking for peace; everyone, in silence….Mary Queen of peace, pray for us.”

Koinonia - Adult Faith Formation Certificate Program

What is Koinonia?
Koinonia (koi-no-NEE-uh) is a Greek word meaning community oradultevangelization fellowship. This is the way in which are called to live our Catholic faith; with and among all the baptized. Many want to know more about the faith in order to live it more fully, especially in light of the Pope's (and Archbishop Mancini's!) call to the New Evangelization. Koinonia, is the name of the Archdiocesan program of lay adult faith formation. It is a program of adult faith formation that meets monthly from September to May. It enables adults to dig deeper into our Roman Catholic faith, reflect on the mission to whom we are all called, and develop the understanding, skills and confidence to take on that mission.

Parking Message

Beginning July 10 the private parking lots surrounding the Cathedral will be monitored on a Parking logo 5regular basis, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This will be done in an effort to make more parking available to those who regularly worship at the Cathedral, come for special liturgical and diocesan events or work at the Pastoral Centre. Those who do not obtain proper authorization to park in either lot will have their car immobilized, i.e. a tire boot will be applied to the vehicle. For more information on the increased monitoring of the parking lots please Continue Reading
