Papal Visit to Canada: Walking Together 

July 24 – 29th, 2022

Pope Francis will make a pastoral visit to Canada from July 24 to 29, 2022. The Pope’s visit will provide a unique opportunity for him, once again, to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of colonization and the participation of the Catholic Church in the operation of residential schools throughout Canada. The papal visit will also provide an opportunity for the shepherd of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics to connect with the Catholic community in Canada.

The Catholic Church has a responsibility to take genuine and meaningful steps to journey with Indigenous Peoples of this land on the lengthy path to healing and reconciliation.

We invite you to join us as we reflect, pray and prepare to welcome the Holy Father for these special days among us.

The Way of the Heart by Henri J. M. Nouwen

The Way of the Heart:
Connecting with God through Prayer, Wisdom and Silence

Nouwen, one of the most influential spiritual writers, invites readers to search deeply into the waters that nourish true, authentic ministry in this book. 

Nouwen formulates a spiritual path consisting three stepping stones: Solitude (learning not to be alone but to be alone with God); Silence (the discipline by which the inner fire of God is tended and kept alive); and Prayer (standing in the presence of God with the mind in the heart). 

The book leads you into a more full encounter with God but with a more creative twist that pays tribute to our human form and fellow human beings.
