A Listening Church: My Family and the Synod

"I invite all families to take part in the Synod. Their contribution is essential and precious," said Archbishop Lépine.  

Would you join us in answering the Archbishop's invitation? Our special family guide and introductory video will make this process easy and within the reach of every family. You will be amazed by the meaningful and prayerful exchanges sparked by this method of spiritual conversation.  These resources are for parents, catechists, priests, PCL's, deacons and anyone who works with families.

Accompaniment and support for persons who are separated or divorced 


The Diocesan Centre for Marriage, Life and Family is launching a monthly series of encounters of listening, accompaniment and group development with Mr. Francis Joannette, permanent deacon in the diocese of Montreal.  

These monthly online meetings are meant to be a space of dialogue and sharing between adults who want to rebuild themselves in Christ in order to get back on their feet and continue to walk in faith. 

Valentine's Day Date Night

Has the pandemic been hard for your life as a couple? Consider coming to this special date night to rekindle the flame of your love!

We will also reflect on the importance of having God at the centre of your relationship to keep designing and building your project together, with the help of fun and creative exercises.

To honour the occasion, Worldwide Marriage Encounter – with the collaboration of the Diocesan Centre for Marriage, Life and Family - invites you to Mass on Saturday, February 12th, 2022. 

The live-streamed (YouTube channel of the diocese) celebration will take place at 5p.m., and be presided by Archbishop Christian Lépine at Mary Queen of the World. Join us to renew your wedding vows, receive a special blessing and pray for couples and families!

Witnesses to Hope

On the occasion of the 36th Diocesan World Youth Day, Pope Francis is inviting the youth of the world to rise up and to be witnesses to hope. How are we as Christians invited to give witness to the mysterious dignity of life - especially when it is marked by suffering- in a culture that supports euthanasia under the guise of "medical aid in dying"? An evening of witnesses from the front lines, with the participation of Archbishop Christian Lépine. "Rise up: I appoint you as a witness of what you have seen. (cf. Acts 26:16)"  

Building solidarity through faithfulness
Building Solidarity through Faithfulness

Has anyone ever said that separation or divorce had to be experiences of deep solitude? During this mini 2-hour retreat with Archbishop Christian Lépine (in French in the morning, in English in the afternoon), come and discover that not only are you not alone, but that with Christ and our brothers and sisters who are in the same boat, solidarity can make this experience richer and even make it a real opportunity.
