May 31, 2014
Here is some of what has been happening across the country this week:
In Vancouver, Archbishop Michael Miller wrote a letter calling the faithful of the west coast to take action against prostitution by offering women a way out. The letter comes months after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the nation’s laws do not protect prostituted women.
In St. Paul Alberta, the funeral of Fr. Gilbert Dasna was held at the Cathedral of St. Paul. Fr. Dasna was killed in the parish rectory. The killer is believed to be the same man who was himself killed in a gun battle with police hours later.
In Winnipeg, Archbishop Richard Gagnon has launched his Episcopal blog. In the most recent post he shares his participation in the recent royal visit.
A global summit about healthcare for mothers and their children was held in Toronto. Vanessa Santilli reports on progress made and the challenges that still lie ahead.
In Halifax, the archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth is undertaking a major renewal process.
