Following the great missionary launch initiated by the Archbishop on the evening of September 14, all pastoral staff are invited to a roadwork meeting on October 9, 10 or 11.

The purpose of this meeting is to set up, in an interactive and dynamic way, the induction of the synodal process by the missionary shift in our parochial environment, and propose a program guide and a calendar for the year to come.

All pastors/parochial administrators, appointed personnel, persons in your community (2 to 4 volunteers), members of movements, associations or religious communities in your circles who have at heart the mission, are welcome to join one of the following work meetings:

  • October 9, from 10 am to 1 pm, at St. John Fisher Parish (in English)
  • October 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at paroisse Notre-Dame d’Anjou Parish (in French)
  • October 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Saint-Sixte Parish (in French)

Meeting Schedule :

10 :00 a.m. - Prayer
10 :30 a.m. - Testimonials + assembling of responses « write about your dreams » from the evening of September 14th

Kindly take note there will be a light snack offered during the break, but no meal. Each of the three meetings will, essentially, contain the same content. It is therefore possible to choose the one that best suits your pastoral team.
