Prepare to celebrate! 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the first Catholic missionaries in Manitoba.
“In this anniversary year of 2018, the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface invites all to join in celebrating the story of this land and its peoples as a story of faith and love blessed by God in many and wondrous ways. The Church established by Bishop Provencher invites all its sister Roman Catholic dioceses of western and northern Canada to give thanks to Jesus Christ for all those women and men of faith, laity, religious and priests who built up the Church over 200 years.” (excerpt from And the Desert Shall Blossom)
