The 6th Week of Easter
50 days of Easter joy.
Canada Health Day
May is the Month of Mary
"God sent forth his Son", but to prepare a body for him, he wanted the free co-operation of a creature. For this, from all eternity God chose for the mother of his Son a daughter of Israel, a young Jewish woman of Nazareth in Galilee, "a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary"
(Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us, sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
RC Diocese of Grand Falls
The Diocese of Grand Falls, covering 19,200 square miles, comprises nearly half of the geographical territory of the island of Newfoundland, which covers 43,000 square miles. The province of Newfoundland, made up of the island and the larger mainland territory of Labrador, is Canada’s tenth province.
Our diocese consists of thirty parishes. Twenty-four parishes are along the extensive and rugged sea coastline, while six are inland parishes. Our diocese was originally known as the Diocese of Harbour Grace, then the Diocese of Harbour Grace-Grand Falls, and in 1964 it became the Diocese of Grand Falls.
The Diocese of Grand Falls serves the People of God in central and eastern Newfoundland with joy and enthusiasm. As you browse through our website, it is our hope that you find this energy and joy reflected therein.
