"Renewing fellowship with Indigenous peoples"

I offer this special invitation to join me this evening online at 7pm

-- giving of yourself by simply listening --

toward reconciliation and healing with the Indigenous peoples of this land


This presentation will be hosted by our friends at St. Thomas à Becket Parish, who'll be welcoming David Acco, a member of Métis Nation, and his wife, Julie Lepage, member of the Nipissing-Ojibway First Nation. David and Julie are long-time faithful parishioners of Holy Name of Jesus parish in Laval.

This presentation will include a Q & A period, as well as a time for prayer.

To join at 7pm this eve, click Zoom presentation

** I am renewing my summer prayer list **


Please send me or the Office first names of those you would like me to either newly or continue to pray for daily.

Check out Two minute video: Bishop Barron on returning to Mass.

As we look towards renewed commitment to Jesus Christ in the Mass,some wisdom from another Montreal parish: Drive-up Communion on Sunday is now suspended, as there is no reason virtually everybody cannot return to Mass in person. There is almost no COVID in the province at present, almost everyone in church is partially or fully vaccinated, and we are very meticulous in our precautions. May we take to heart the words we have been saying every week in the prayer for an end to the pandemic: “Let us not be afraid, but rather entrust our life into the care of our Divine Physician.” Attending Mass are very elderly people, some fighting cancer, immunocompromised people, and they all feel safe because of our protocols.

For individual special cases, call us as always to arrange pastoral home care.
