coast to coast
Here's what's been happening in the church this week:
Antigonish is closing two churches due to "population decline". One of the churches is considered the "mother church" of Sydney, N.S.
Meanwhile, the Archdiocese of St. Boniface takes a look at the future of it's parishes.
Catholics in Caledonia, Ontario are waiting to find out why and who police are investigating at St. Patrick's Church. Police have seized computers as part of a child porn investigation, but no charges have been laid nor have suspects been named.
and in Vancouver, the Archbishop is rallying the faithful again. This time he is calling on Catholics to pray and fast for Christians in Iraq as they flee in fear for their lives.
