2nd Annual Archbishop's Dinner

Would you like to have dinner with Archbishop Mancini? Join Archdiocese-crest 325x426Catholics across our region for this fundraising dinner in support of the pastoral works of the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth. The dinner will be a launching point for our Pastoral Plan for the year. The Pastoral Plan is the result of the conversations people like you have had with one another and the input that you shared with the Archbishop during our Transformation process over the past year. Get an insight into the Pastoral Plan and how it invites our family of faith to grow through our community, our formation and our mission!

The dinner will be on Thursday, September 25 at the Westin Nova Scotian at 6:00pm. The Honourable Stephen McNeil, Premier of Nova Scotia, will be a special guest speaker and will speak on family and faith. Auctions, one silent and one live, will round out what will be a great night of food, fellowship and fun.

To purchase tickets for this fundraiser dinner please see the Archdiocesan website: www.halifaxyarmouth.org/dinner. To order by phone contact Melissa Lunn at (902) 429-9800 x309. Ticket cost: $125.00.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Happy Feast Day To Us!

August 15 is the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, the patronal Assumption of Mary noblack - web croppedfeast day of the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth. This day is also of great significance to our Acadian communities, as August 15 is National Acadian Day. All the faithful are encouraged to celebrate this special day in their parishes or by gathering for the 12:15pm Mass at Saint Mary's Cathedral Basilica, Archbishop Mancini presiding. A reception will follow. All are welcome!

This solemnity offers us the chance to reflect on Mary's assumption into heaven at the end of her life to join her son, our Lord Jesus Christ. The Gospel on that day proclaims Mary's Magnificat, her yes to the Lord. Pope Francis encourages us to see and feel that great hope in Mary's yes.

Diaconal Ordination

Priests from the Companions of the Cross have ministered in our Archdiocese for cross 9almost 15 years. A part of their ministry has included seminarians coming to spend their internship at one of our local parishes. This summer Holy Trinity Pastoral Unit is excited to welcome back seminarian Kenneth Lao for his Ordination to the Diaconate on August 16, 10:00am at St. John Vianney Church.

Mass For The Faithful Departed

Cemetery Mass 012 croppedEach year, to take some time to remember our loved ones who have died, we come together for the Annual Mass for the Faithful Departed. This year's Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Anthony Mancini on Tuesday, August 19 at 7:00pm at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Lower Sackville. All are welcome to attend. Please bring a lawn chair! The collection taken during this liturgy will support the maintenance and care of our Catholic cemeteries in the Halifax area: Gate of Heaven, Mount Olivet and Holy Cross. In the event of rain the Mass will be celebrated at Saint John Vianney Church, 4 Beaverbank Rd, Lower Sackville.

 

Parking Message

Beginning July 10 the private parking lots surrounding the Cathedral will be monitored on a Parking logo 5regular basis, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This will be done in an effort to make more parking available to those who regularly worship at the Cathedral, come for special liturgical and diocesan events or work at the Pastoral Centre. Those who do not obtain proper authorization to park in either lot will have their car immobilized, i.e. a tire boot will be applied to the vehicle.
