LAUDATO SI’ RETREAT:
AN INTRODUCTORY IMMERSION
Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
The goal of the Laudato Si’ Retreat is to help participants embark in this journey of “ecological conversion”, to transform the way we relate to our Creator, all of Creation and our most vulnerable brothers and sisters.
The four-hour retreat will include reflections on the encyclical, guided meditation, interactive exercises, time for personal reflection and journaling, and small group reflection. We will experience three moments inspired by the encyclical:
Hear Creation’s Song
Hear Creation’s Cry
Answer Creation’s Call

Praying the Rosary
On May 1, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops renewed the consecration of our nation to the care of Mary, our Blessed Mother. We encourage you to entrust yourself and your family to the care of our Blessed Mother every day.
Archbishop Lépine will continue the daily recitation of the Rosary throughout the month of June, at 7 p.m. from Mary Queen of the World Cathedral (broadcast live on the diocesan YouTube channel and Facebook page).
If there are deceased persons whom you wish remembered in prayer, submit your intention online at: www.diocesemontreal.org.
