Statement on Physician-Assisted Suicide by the Most Reverend Paul-André Durocher, Archbishop of Gatineau and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

Catholics are called by their faith to assist all those in need, particularly the poor, the suffering and the dying. Comforting the dying and accompanying them in love and solidarity has been considered by the Church since its beginning a principal expression of Christian mercy.

Coming in January 2015!  Each parish will have a copy of the commissioned icon of the Holy Family for the World Meeting of Families with Pope Francis in September 2015 in Philadelphia.  Bishop Paul Terrio invites parishioners to take turns having the painting in their home for a few days to pray before it, talk about the picture and what it means for us today.  This is an opportunity for “family” catechesis during our Year of the Family!

Bishop Terrio has issued a pastoral letter addressing the debate concerning Bill 10 as it affects Catholic Education.
