Happy Mother’s Day
May God’s many blessings
Be yours forever more
And may you know you’re valued
And loved by the Lord
Especially on this day
That we have set aside
To show our appreciation
To the Mothers in our lives.
The entire month of May is devoted to honouring the Blessed Virgin Mary. CCCB President, the Most Reverend Richard Gagnon says, “May is the month dedicated in a special way to the Mother of Christ. We believe that she is, in a spiritual but real sense, our mother too. We turn to her and ask for the help of her powerful and maternal prayers to God for us. To consecrate ourselves to Mary means to be united with her in entrusting our lives entirely to God.”
On April 25, Pope Francis asked all Catholics to pray the Rosary during the month of May, asking for Mary’s intercession in stopping the coronavirus pandemic.
The Archdiocese is offering a free gift of Rosary prayer beads to anyone who asks during the month of May.
Kindly send your request by email to: email@example.com.
You will receive it by mail, free of charge.
Our Capital Campaign continues throughout 2020.
Thanks to your generosity and to an anonymous donor who made an exceptional gift, we are doing very well.
