As a way of coming together to transform our diocesan Church, Archbishop Christian Lépine invites all the faithful to a great evening of prayer, song, and witnessing, with the presentation of the diocesan Merit Award on Friday, September 14, 2018!

At the beginning of this pastoral year, the Archbishop of Montreal, Most Reverend Christian Lépine, invites every one of us to this diocesan event at Mary Queen of the World Cathedral.

Why participate?

  • To invoke the Holy Spirit, the source of spiritual renewal of our communities!
  • Because we are part of one and the same family practicing the same faith!


5 p.m. - 6 p.m.: Solemn Mass of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross
6 p.m. - 7 p.m.: Lunch in the Cathedral basement (please bring your own dinner)
7 p.m. - 9 p.m.: Evening of prayer, witnessing, message from the Archbishop and presentation of the diocesan Merit Award.

“To follow, accompany and remain with Christ means “getting out”. Getting out of oneself, of one’s tired and habitual way of living out one’s faith, the temptation to confine oneself to one’s own plans, which in the end confines the horizon God’s creative action.” (Pope Francis)
