La responsabilité du témoignage chrétien dans la vie politique d’une époque sécularisée

Cette traduction non officielle de la lettre pastorale de Mgr Mancini vous est offerte pour votre réflexion grâce à Père Yvon Dionne.

«Rappelle à tous qu’ils doivent se soumettre aux dirigeants et aux autorités, qu’ils doivent leur obéir et être prêts à faire tout ce qui est bien. Qu’ils ne disent du mal de personne, qu’ils soient pacifiques et bienveillants et qu’ils montrent continuellement de la douceur envers tous les hommes... Le Christ Jésus nous a sauvés non pas parce que nous aurions accompli des œuvres justes, mais à cause de sa miséricorde» (Tite 3, 1-2, 5)

Mercredi des Cendres - le 18 février 2015

Aux fidèles de l’Archidiocèse d’Halifax-Yarmouth
Chers amis,

Comme une nouvelle année pastorale s’est amorcée l’automne dernier, des questions et des préoccupations furent soulevées par quelques-uns se demandant s’il était sage d’inviter une personne politique à livrer un message public lors de la collecte annuelle de fonds de l’archevêque. L’orateur a donné un témoignage personnel sur l’importance capitale de la foi catholique reçue au cours de son enfance et l’influence formatrice que cela a eu sur sa vie et son travail. Le message était clair et fut bien reçu, et il reflétait les convictions de l’homme, même si quelques personnes n’étaient pas en plein accord avec sa vision politique.

Chrism Mass

Chrism Mass

This Mass, which the bishop concelebrates with his college of presbyters and at which he consecrates the holy chrism and blesses the other oils, manifests the communion of the presbyters with their bishop.

Messe Chrismale

Messe Chrismale

Cette messe, que l’évêque concélèbre avec ses prêtres et au cours de laquelle il consacre le saint-chrême et bénit les autres huiles, est comme la manifestation de l’union étroite des prêtres avec leur évêque.

Pastoral Planning Update

Pastoral Planning Update

In October the Archbishop introduced his pastoral letter Quo Vadis, Domine? And called upon all parishes to begin a process of discernment leading to action. Over the past number of months parishes have brought this prayerful discernment to life. So far, 62 of our 72 parishes have formed a team for this process. We have received ministry reports and statistics from 50 parishes, with many more in progress. Additionally, most of our parishes have begun the three part Lenten Series this month. By participating in the Lenten Series many people will have the chance to learn and grow in their understanding of our call as a local Church.

RIP- Msgr. Raymond March

Catholic Cemeteries of Halifax

Catholic Cemeteries of Halifax

Due to our recent weather challenges our staff at the Catholic Cemeteries of Halifax has worked very hard to keep our three Cemeteries; Gate of Heaven, Holy Cross, and Mount Olivet open to families and visitors.

If you are planning to visit Mount Olivet Cemetery in Halifax, we would request you delay your visit for a week or so as the roads are very slippery for cars and for walking, and we are closed to burials for a short time. Gate of Heaven Cemetery is open. When visiting the Cemetery on the weekend, remember the weather can quickly change and you should take care for your own safety.   If you are planning to visit Holy Cross Cemetery, access is limited to the main road entry.

If you have any questions please call (902) 429-9800 ext. 308.
