TO THE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE PARISHES AND COMMUNITIES OF THE ARCHDIOCESE

            Last spring, workshops were held in French to train lay men and women to lead Sunday Celebrations of the Word in parishes when a priest is not available to preside at the Eucharist. Archbishop Durocher has developed new guidelines for the diocese in this regard, and it is important that we all be on the same wavelength when it comes to this reality.

            Archbishop Durocher is pleased to offer the same workshop for the English sector of our diocese. Each parish should designate a small team (three or four parishioners) who can participate in this training and be available to lead Sunday Celebrations of the Word when called to do so in their parish. These individuals are invited to attend the training session which will be held on Tuesday evening October 22nd at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish, 300 de l’Abbé-Murray St. in Gatineau. The meeting will start at 6:00 pm with a light lunch, courtesy of the Diocese. We’ll get down to business at 6:30 and finish at 9:00 pm (we realize that a weekday evening is difficult for some, but the next Saturday which is free for Archbishop Durocher is January!).

            The resource book which will guide our discussion is published by the CCCB under the title “Sunday Celebration of the Word and Hours”. Each parish should have at least one “ambo” edition (hard cover – larger format) as well as a couple of “study” editions (soft cover – smaller format) for individual members of the team.
