On Nov 5 and 6, the Archdiocese will hold a special collection to support the Indigenous Reconciliation Fund set up by the Bishops of Canada. All monies raised will be used to support initiatives by local Indigenous groups and organizations. An example would be a project to create oral histories as told by Indigenous elders.

To learn more about the initiative, check out the document below.


You can request a Prayer Shawl to give as a special gift to someone struggling with illness, dealing with a recent loss, or celebrating a spiritual event, such as a baptism or wedding anniversary. Prayer Shawls have been blessed by one of our pastors, and are always given as a free gift.

To request one for a family or friend, click here.

Permission: Fr. Bob’s Vision for the Church

“You can’t deny what has happened through this man and the legacy of it.” -Angèle Regnier (Co-Founder of CCO)

Permission: Fr. Bob’s Vision for the Church is a film being developed to tell the story of the founder of the Companions of the Cross, Fr. Bob Bedard, CC.  This is the story of a modern day champion for the renewal of the priesthood and the church. It is a story that must be told. 

“He was preaching New Evangelization before the word even became popular”. – Bishop Scott McCaig, CC

This film is being crowdfunded, and you are invited to be part of the team funding it. There are many levels of giving and each donation is tax deductible through the Companions of the Cross.
