Niskam ne'kaw koqqwajeyuksi'k. Dieu est toujours fidèle. Tha Dia daonnan dìleas.
God is always faithful.
"As I look toward this year of renewal, I am deeply inspired by the fidelity of parishioners who remain committed to their journey of faith ...
May we be inspired to be renewed in God’s love and fidelity as we respond as missionary disciples in our daily lives."
Bishop Brian Dunn

Our Banners Are Up!
Our 175th Anniversary Banners were designed and crafted by Yvette de Souza-Muise and assembled in our Chancery Office with the help of Cathy Walsh, Executive Assistant to Bishop Dunn and Vice-Chancellor of our diocese, and summer student Siobhan MacLellan. The banners will hang in St. Ninian Cathedral from Pentecost until our anniversary closing celebration Sept. 15.
Learn more about the artist Yvette de Souza-Muise and the art and faith of her banner designs in our June newsletter.
