Family Matters - Growing Holy Families in the 21st Century

Pope Francis has asked that the whole Church take time to reflect on family life: What is God’s will for families? How do we live a life of Holiness? What is the meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage? etc. To help renew our marriages and family life the Edmonton Eparchy has devoted a new section on the website: Family Matters – Growing Holy Families in the 21st Century.

Thank you to all who responded to the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton’s “Becoming a More Welcoming Parish” survey. The Eparchial Pastoral Council and I have compiled the results and will be using them as a foundation for engaging our Ukrainian Catholic community in the process of renewal, as addressed in the 25 Year Pastoral Plan (the Plan). We will also be sharing results pertinent to each parish with the respective parish pastors and councils to help each parish to build on its strengths and grow into an even more welcoming parish.

This was the custom in ancient Judea and was also practiced by Christians.
