Here is a sample of what we've been reading about across this vast country of ours.
In Vancouver, one of the Syrian families that arrived in Canada in February sits down to share their story and their experience of welcome on the west coast.
In Winnipeg: Even though the pope’s encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ was released a year ago, awareness of the plight of our common home is still front and centre. Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg and the Manitoba office of Development and Peace are making sure of that.  
In Toronto: A Basilian priest from Edmonton has been named the new auxiliary bishop for Toronto.
In Montreal: World Youth Day pilgrims are preparing for their upcoming trip with the help of a holocaust survivor. Their itinerary includes a visit to Auschwitz, the WWII Nazi death camp.
