During the 4:30pm Mass on May 13th, one of our own, Joe Jeronimo, will receive Papal honours and be installed as a Knight of St. Gregory.

The Order of the Knights of St. Gregory is a prestigious honour of the Catholic Church, given to Catholic men and women who have demonstrated exceptional service to Church and society, either through personal witness of faith or through works in various fields, like education, medicine, art or public service.

With thanks to Joe for all his service, we're happy to celebrate as he receives these honours. A light reception will follow the Mass and installation.

Open Letters from the Bishops of Canada on Euthanasia

Image description

Over the years, CCCB members have consistently and repeatedly expressed their opposition to euthanasia and assisted suicide, which was legalized in Canada in June 2016. As predicted in 2015, subsequent amendments to the legislation have allowed for an ever-expanding list of vulnerable persons to be made eligible for euthanasia and assisted suicide. Today, in the context of the National Week for Family and Life, the Permanent Council of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued two letters on federal legislation which, by March 17, 2024, will permit persons living with mental illness to access euthanasia.
