September 30: National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

 

A reminder that Archbishop Dunn will mark this day with the 12:15 daily Mass at Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica. Following the Mass he will offer a reflection on the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary.   In-person attendance is welcome, keeping in mind current COVID-19 protocols. No pre-registration is required; attendance is first-come-first-served. Archbishop Dunn encourages parishes to also have similar moments of prayer in their local churches.  In the Letter to the Faithful you received last week, Archbishop Dunn invited all the faithful to observe this day by creating opportunities for prayer, fasting, and repentance.

Mass at Stella Maris Parish: Our parish has formed a committee to help us understand how we can work toward a healing process of truth and reconciliation with the indigenous peoples of Mi’kma’ki. The first step is for us to deepen in our understanding of our need for repentance. As such, on September 30th, Fr. Rob would like to encourage parishioners to participate in the 9:00am Mass at St. Michael’s church followed by a time of Eucharistic Adoration. Adoration will be available from the end of Mass until noon.
