A Variety of Giving Options

Over the past few years, I’ve mentioned several giving options that one could consider for aiding Catholic Missions In Canada.  Here’s a summary of ways in which you might be able to help: Some of these giving options can even be used together.  For example, you could use a Gift of Securities to fund an […]

“Yes, But…”

The Indian Residential School system existed in Canada and caused enormous damage to children, families and communities. That’s not a belief, it’s a fact. As such, it is part of our national fabric and needs to be included in our historical, political and religious narratives, no matter what emerging evidence may reveal. Most of us […]

Called to Serve

I’m Christine Manuel, a consecrated virgin in the Diocese of Corner Brook and Labrador. My involvement in the Innu community of Sheshatshiu, Labrador began during the summer of 2018. Father Joe, the parish priest, invited me to come and help with parish visitation. He’d bless each house and bring the family together for prayer and […]

Promptings of the Spirit

Why would anyone commit to driving over 1,000 kms for 20 weekends of faith formation sessions?  Answer: because one feels prompted by the Holy Spirit.  This is what 6 women from Pelican Narrows, SK did in order to take a Lay Formation program offered in Saskatoon, a 7-hour drive away.  Their stories may vary, but […]

The People of the Heart: Seeking Synergy Between Two Traditions

I am a product of Sagkeeng First Nation, which is a signatory to Treaty Number 1. The story of my journey to the priesthood is a long one. It’s been said that the road of life is not easy, filled with many obstacles and victories, but also with the empowerment of the Creator to overcome […]

Gratitude, Not Anger

Since I was last in Labrador, there have been many changes. Bishop Bart replaced Bishop Hunt and Sheshatshiu has a new church with its own priest. Our Lady Queen of Peace in Happy Valley also has a new priest. It doesn’t surprise me that there are changes, as foreign missionary priests usually don’t stay very […]

We’re Putting You to Work to Spread the Word!

Catholic Missions In Canada is one of the best kept secrets in our land.  Comparatively speaking, very few Canadian Catholics know about CMIC.  They don’t know that we solely support our ‘home’ missions and nothing else.  They don’t know that our work allows us to assist those who serve in small and often isolated communities […]

Gifts of Indigenous Ministry

Those who engage in the service of others often state that in doing so, they receive more than they give.  These are certainly the sentiments of 10 Sisters, 4 priests and a bishop, all of whom have ministered among the Indigenous people of Western and Northern Canada and who now live at Trinity Manor, a […]

A Seminarian’s Missionary Journey

I am William Mancao, a Filipino from the Missionary Seminary Redemptoris Mater of Vancouver, a fruit of the Neocatechumenal Way. I’ve finished my Philosophy and Theology studies and as part of my seminary formation, I’ve been sent for a year to Whitehorse. I arrived in July. It is a massive diocese that contains the whole […]
