Here are some of the things we’ve been reading about across the country:
One Ukrainian seminarian travelled a long way to be ordained a deacon and continue his journey to priesthood.
In Prince Albert, Saskatchewan two other men weathered life’s unexpected twists and turns before realizing their callings to the permanent diaconate.
August is the month for Marian pilgrimages. Many archdioceses have a place where they make pilgrimage on or around the feast of the ascension. For one Alberta couple the annual Skaro Shrine pilgrimage has extra special meaning.
One parish in Thornhill, Ontario got to see (or at least hear about) the results of their relief efforts for Typhoon Haiyan victims.
And in Prince Edward Island just when St. Malachy’s parish was preparing to sell the rectory to pay for repairs to the church, they got an unexpected helping hand.
