John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven and remain upon him. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”   - Jn 1:32-34

Weekly Meditation
Daily Prayer to End Abortion
 Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life and for the lives of all my
brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than
abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the resurrection of
Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
 Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Moving Forward Together: Archdiocesan Synod

What is it?
A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in
his shepherding of the local Church. The purpose is to discern and
establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater
unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.

How can I participate?
Please pray for the Synod and our Archdiocese. You are also encouraged to attend a Prayer and Listening Event.
Participants gather together to pray, discuss, and give feedback on what is working well now in their parish and this Archdiocese, and what are the challenges and opportunities. Everyone is invited to attend an event. All participants are encouraged to give written feedback that will be read and considered. Archbishop Bernard Hebda is scheduled to attend all events to pray and to participate in the listening process.

You can find a schedule of Prayer and Listening Events, along with additional information about the Synod on the link below. Schedules are also available in the gathering space.

Please view the following links for video messages from Archbishop Hebda

The March commemorates the deaths of more than 60 million unborn babies killed by abortion since the US Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion on demand. Your presence will help show elected officials and the public the depth of support for pro-life legislation protecting women and unborn babies.
