DIOCESAN ANNOUNCEMENTS

FAMINE RELIEF FUND FOR SOUTH SUDAN, SOMALIA, NIGERIA, YEMEN

The CCCB, in its interfaith appeal letter to support the famine relief in Africa and Yemen declares “Our joint appeal is a unified cry from the heart, with one voice and one message... the insistent call for peace and the need to protect the vulnerable. The protection and promotion of human dignity are foundational elements of all our faith communities. Willful indifference towards violations against human dignity is always wrong, at all times and in all places.” Parishes have been asked to take up a second collection to support the Famine Relief Fund.  Please continue to pray for all those suffering from hunger and the humanitarian workers working in the region.

ONE ROCK

One Rock is in its 8th year and is taking place this August 11-13th, 2017 at the Tsuut’ina Rodeo Grounds, near Bragg Creek, where we will celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary. The One Rock Festival of Faith supports young adults, youth and families in a communal experience of faith. Every year thousands gather for the Festival to enjoy world-class musicians, speakers, sports, fireside chats, community-building experiences and liturgies.

This year’s Festival features many bands such as Informants and Flood the Stone as well as presenters: including a former model turned inspirational speaker Leah Darrow, who shares her powerful witness story of discovering real truth, beauty and love, Fr. Raymond De Souza, columnist for the National Post, who uses the media to witness to the truth.

Uniting people in this faith experience for three days, will impact you forever.
