The Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has published new instructions regarding burials and the conservation of ashes.
The first pastoral unit of the Diocese to undertake the creation of its new parish was in the Lamèque area.
You may look through the photo gallery of the inauguration celebration for the new Saint-Pierre parish as well as the photo galleries of Bishop Jodoin's pastoral visit of the surrounding communities by following the links below :

It is important to mentally and spiritually prepare oneself to attain spiritual fulfilment.
A spiritural guide has been prepared and will be available to all who want to experience this spiritual journey.

All are welcome!
Dear faithful ones,
Last year, I sent you a pastoral letter on the theme: “For Christian Communities faithful to Christ and ever more vibrant.” This letter was a source of healing and reflection for many of you. And for that I rejoice. The letter enabled us to take a new look at ourselves and to reflect once again on our pastoral experience so as to better serve the Lord.
