Diocese Newsletter - February 9th, 2021

From the Bishop's Office 

This year, the World Day of the Sick is on the theme: "You have only one master and you are all brothers (Mt 23, 8) ”. 
The celebration of the 29th World Day of the Sick, which will take place on February 11, 2021, in memory of Our-Lady of Lourdes, is a good time to pay special attention to sick people and to those who assist them, both in places dedicated to care and within families and communities.
This year, Development and Peace's Lent campaign for sharing has the theme "Let's share love ".
This theme is inspired by the recent encyclical Fratelli Tutti (All brothers and sisters). In his message,Pope Francis offers us "a way of life that tastes of the Gospel".
We will give you more information soon in our next newsletter.

On Sunday January 31, Monday February 1,and Tuesday February 2, 2021, the six Religious Hospitallers of Saint
Joseph had the joy and the happiness of living a “triduum” in preparation for the renewal of their vows. 
The animator, Father Serge Comeau, presented us with a talk for each day based on the last encyclical of Pope Francis “Fratelli Tutti”.
1 st talk: "The fraternity ... from Assisi to our home".
2 nd talk: “Community life: an essential sign of fraternity in our world”.
3 rd talk: “Community life in the light of Fratelli Tutti and Tradition”.
These intense moments of reflection and prayer ended with the Eucharistic celebration in our Chapel. We followed the social distancing required by public health.
