Good Shepherd Campaign 

seminarians 2017The 2017 Good Shepherd Campaign is an initiative of Archbishop Albert LeGatt to support the costs of formation for our seminarians, of ongoing professional development of our clergy and the enculturation of our international priests. We are blessed to have six men studying towards the priesthood.

Father Vincent Lusty and Father Joshua Gundrum were ordained on July 3rd, 2017 and are now serving in parishes.

Please continue to pray for our seminarians and clergy.

CALL FOR CONSCIENCE CAMPAIGN, PROMOTING BILL 34

vatican_ii_pic

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,  have you ever thought about the importance of your conscience? That small little voice that, formed by the Church, speaks of right or wrong, Good or evil. We often don’t realize just what an amazing faculty of the spirit the conscience is. Vatican II, in the document Gaudium et Spes, argued that “[C]onscience is the most secret core and sanctuary of a man. There he is alone with God, whose voice echoes in his depths.”[1]

Sadly in our times, this secret core is under attack, and we are called to the defence of it. Specifically at the request of the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, in the  “Call for Conscience Campaign”, promoting Bill 34, put forward by the Government of Manitoba.  The bill aims to protect conscience rights for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who object to participating in medical aid in dying.

Throughout the province, this campaign is to run in Catholic parishes on 3 consecutive weekends: September 23rd, September 30thand October 7th.

For more information, please review the attached documents.

Letter for parishioners : A letter for parishioners letting them know how they can get involved in the campaign.

Letter for MLAA template letter to be printed, for parishioners to sign and send to your MLA; a copy should also be sent to the Archdiocese.

For any questions on the “Call for Conscience Campaign”, please contact Nadine Fetherston at the Service of Marriage, Family and Life:
