Welcome to the new Halifax-Yarmouth News Service!

Today we begin a new journey in our archdiocesan communications as we issue the first edition of our Halifax-Yarmouth News Service. In many of our consultations during our process of Transformation clear communications throughout the Archdiocese was highlighted as a key need. One way we hope to answer this need is through this News Service ‒ as well as an archdiocesan monthly journal. This News Service aims to become a valued means to share in a timely manner what is happening in the life of our local church.

Steubenville Atlantic Launch This Friday

Steubenville Atlantic Launch This Friday

Every summer about 700 young people and their chaperones gather at Steubenville Atlantic, our conference for high school youth. It's a powerful weekend experience of prayer, praise and worship music, talks, and profound encounter with Christ through the sacraments.

Want to see what all the fuss is about? Join us this Friday, January 30 for our 2015 Launch Party. This is a free event to give you a small taste of what the full conference is like, with music, prayer, comments from Archbishop Mancini and a talk by Bob Rice, the host of this summer's conference. Come yourself, or bring a young person you know who might be interested!

The launch is at 7:00 pm at McNally Theatre at St. Mary’s University. Can’t make it to Halifax? Join in at any one of our regional viewing sites, or watch online from home through www.steubenville.ca

Meet other young people who are trying to live as Catholics in the world, and find out how to include God in your life... wherever you are.

Mass to celebrate World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life and the Year of Consecrated Life

Mass to celebrate World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life and the Year of Consecrated Life

This year has been designated by the Holy Father as the Year of Consecrated Life. Catholics all over the world are asked to recognize in a particular way the ministry and service of the men and women who have answered the call to consecrated life. Many communities of faith have been blessed by their presence and example of faith.

As the community of the Church of Halifax-Yarmouth we want to also recognize, give thanks, and pray for the many women and men who live this vocation in our local area. Join members of these communities and Archbishop Anthony Mancini on Monday, February 2 for the 12:15pm Mass at Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica in Halifax. This Mass is an event to celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life and will honor women and men who live in consecrated life and pray for young people who are discerning this vocation. A reception will follow in the Cathedral Hall. This a great opportunity to meet members of these communities and thank them personally for their witness. All are welcome!
