Dear Friends,

In December 2011 the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth came into existence. Since that time, we have gradually moved towards the amalgamation of the services provided by the Archdiocese.

Don’t forget - Jesuit Celebration!

Don’t forget - Jesuit Celebration!

Join Archbishop Anthony Mancini tonight, Tuesday, June 28, at 7:00pm at Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica for a Mass of Thanksgiving to honor the 76 years of pastoral service the Jesuits have given to the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth. Their continued good and faithful ministry in our local church over the many years has left a great impact on our diocese that will continue to live on as the order leaves our area. Come and offer your prayers for and best wishes to the last Jesuit priests to serve in our diocese: Fr. Jean Marc Laporte and Fr. Trevor Scott. Both will be moving on to new assignments in other parts of Canada in the coming weeks.

Franciscan LEAD

Franciscan LEAD

Next week 35 young people will start their Steubenville Atlantic experience by taking part in Franciscan LEAD. The program is a five-day, Christ-centered, sacrament-soaked, prayer fueled immersion in Catholic teachings on leadership, evangelization, and discipleship inspired by the life and witness of St. Francis of Assisi. Youth apply to be a part of the program as a lead into their Steubenville Atlantic experience.

Please prayer for these young people as they grow in their relationship with Christ and answer his call to be missionary disciples!
