2016 Lenten Series

2016 Lenten Series

As we prepare to begin Lent this year, parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth are invited to take part in our annual Lenten Video series. This is the next important step of our efforts to transform our hearts and our parishes. We are intentionally setting aside some time during our Lenten journey to reflect, pray, and discern where the Lord is calling your unique community of faith.

2016 World Day of the Sick (English/French)

Dear friends,

The World Day of the Sick is usually celebrated February 11th, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. This year however, I am inviting all of our faithful and all of our parishes to celebrate the healing love of God on February 14th, the first Sunday of Lent. In this way, we can connect the ministry of care for the sick, the elderly, the disabled and all who suffer with our Lenten journey of conversion and with the graces available to us in the Year of Mercy.

Rite of Election

Rite of Election

On Sunday, February 14, Archbishop Anthony Mancini will pray with those looking to becoming Catholic during this year’s Easter Vigil. This special liturgy, that includes the Rite of Election, will be celebrated at Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica at 3:00pm. All are welcome!

Friends of L’Arche

Friends of L’Arche

The Friends-of-L'Arche Halifax group will meet for their monthly gathering on Sunday, February 14 from 1:30pm to 3:30pm in St. Agnes Hall, Mumford Road, Halifax.

Formation: Make Disciples! Form Leaders! Call Servants!

A special archdiocesan wide collection will happen on the weekend of February 27-28, 2015. Funds from this collection will aid our formation efforts. What do we mean by formation? The term formation describes the methods and means that we us to encourage growth or maturation of our faith. Archbishop Mancini has made formation a key theme in the revitalization of our local Church and he needs your support. Together we can provide the means necessary to equip us in the Church of Halifax-Yarmouth.

Office Closed: February 15

The chancery offices of the Archdiocese in both Halifax and Yarmouth will be closed for Heritage Day on Monday, February 15, 2016. Heritage Day is an annual reminder of our province’s storied past and an opportunity to honour the remarkable people, places and events that have contributed to our unique heritage. This year Heritage Day falls on Monday February 15th and this year Joseph Howe will be remembered.
