    Comment regarding St. Patrick’s (Fallowfield) Cemetery Case

    It is very difficult when a respected member of the community is convicted of stealing community funds. It is with sadness that we learn that Mr. Ronald Houlahan pleaded guilty to misappropriating funds from the cemetery at St. Patrick Parish in Fallowfield that were held in trust  for the maintenance and care of the cemetery.  When the apparent theft was first discovered, Diocesan Administration of Cemeteries stepped in to manage the cemetery.  At the parish’s request, that able management is continuing. Our insurers have covered a large part of the loss and we understand that a restitution order has been made by the court. Working with the Crown Attorney’s Office and our insurers, the Archdiocese will ensure that the cemetery trust and operations funds will have the necessary resources to care for the cemetery’s needs. The Archdiocese assures the parish and members of the community who have arrangements with the cemetery that it is in a financially stable situation under very good management.

    The Feast of the Epiphany

    The Catholic Church in Canada celebrates today the feast of the
    Epiphany. It is a feast that began in the Eastern churches and was

    and the crown of the Christmas festival.

    ENCOUNTER - Evangelization and Catechesis of Children, Youth & Families

    With the decision to celebrate an
    Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, we receive a glimpse of something that is of
    paramount importance to our Holy Father – the unending mercy of God. And within the midst of this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has named other jubilees to be celebrated. One that resonated with me in a particular way is the one celebrated on September 25th: the Jubilee of Catechists.
