Archbishop Mancini's Easter Message (eng/fr)

Dear Friends,1959762 299268346893046 2067205580 n-cropped

Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia is the ancient profession of faith with which for centuries the friends and followers of Christ have been greeting each other every Easter. May we in our own time, joyfully exclaim and share our faith, as we celebrate the central mystery of our faith.

Christ is Risen indeed, Alleluia, Alleluia is the traditional response to this greeting and proclamation. It would be wonderful if we could respond with the enthusiasm of our ancestors in the faith, because of the transforming grace and impact of our own experience of Christ's Resurrection.

My hope for all the members of our Church is that the power and glory of Christ's Resurrection might be expressed in our discovery of the Word of God; in our faith sharing experiences; in the freedom and joy which comes from forgiveness, reconciliation and healing.

May our New Evangelization efforts effectively bring about a re-birth of commitment to Jesus Christ and a renewed spirit in our Church.

Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!
Indeed He is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!

†Anthony Mancini
Archbishop of Halifax-Yarmouth

Beyond the Pews

test logo sideways"I am preparing to consult those who are not in our pews: those who are baptized but for whatever reason are now beyond our pews. I would like to hear from them. They are our brothers and sisters in the faith. And they also belong to family of God. What's going on in their hearts? I would like to know. But I can't do it by myself. Will you help me to accomplish this?"

Archbishop Mancini said these words at our Live Lenten Mission. Will you help him to accomplish this task? This Easter weekend we begin a new initiative called Beyond the Pews. We all know less active Catholics. They are our friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances. And while they may not be in the pews with us every Sunday they are still part of our Catholic family.

Our Blogging Bishop!

 DSC0782croipped315x197To reach out to the young people of our Archdiocese in a contemporary way, Archbishop Mancini has begun a blog. Announced on Palm Sunday the blog will feature messages from him specifically aimed at young people preparing for Confirmation. They will be able to interact with the Archbishop by leaving comments, questions and prayer requests on the blog. Check out the Archbishop's blog at: www.halifaxyarmouth.org/confirmation.
