Here’s what’s been going on across the country this week:
In Vancouver, where the permanent diaconate program has only been in place for about two years, another group of candidates have started the journey towards ordained ministry.
In Saskatoon, a controversial “conscientious objection” policy was passed this week by the province’s College of Physicians and Surgeons.
In Ontario, a Catholic school is in mourning after two of its students were killed in an accident by a driver allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
In Edmonton, the Catholic School Board promised to have a policy in place by October for transgender students. The need for the policy was raised after one student transitioned from self – identifying as male to female.
