National Week for Life and the Family

The National Week for Life and the Family (NWLF), an initiative of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, is fast approaching- May 9-16, 2021. In Manitoba, the National Week for Life and the Family is a Tri-Diocesan effort (by the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, Archdiocese of Winnipeg, and the Archeparchy of Winnipeg), that promotes several events and actively works to enrich faith and community throughout the National week in May, but also extends the celebration to both before and following the National week. Every year the committee focuses on a new topic and theme that is pertinent to the Church and families today. The theme in Manitoba this year is: “Family, the Domestic Church: A Sign of Hope and Life.”

As part of the National Week for Life and the Family, the diocese is very happy to offer once again two entirely virtual events:

1) The Catholic Family Conference (May 6 -8,2021)

May 6 features an online program for children/teens featuring a faith-filled comedy, perfect for kids, teens, and families. There is also a session for young adults (ages 16+), sharing personal inspiring stories of living in Christ’s light while tackling modern-day challenges as well as an opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration. May 7, for adults, features moving guest speaker and author, Robert Rogers who shares his tragic life-changing story, how God moved to bring light in his darkest moments. Come listen, learn, discuss, and be inspired! May 8, join us together with your family, and Archbishops LeGatt, Gagnon and Huculak as we pray, sing, dance, explore and share ways we can be light to each other through family worship, activities & sharing as well as a bilingual concelebrated mass!

2) The National March for Life on May 13, 2021

The National March for Life in Ottawa typically the largest annual protest on Parliament Hill, takes place in May to mark the passing of the 1969 omnibus bill which decriminalized abortion. Pro-lifers rally in front of our Parliament building and march through downtown Ottawa to advocate for the right to life of every human being from conception to natural death. Many provinces including Manitoba, have also held local marches in solidarity with Ottawa.

This year the March for Life will once again be taking place virtually, with complete live coverage through EWTN on Thursday, May 13th from 10:30 am – 1:30 Pm CST. The National Mass for Life celebrated by Archbishop Damphousse, with greetings from Cardinal Collins and Archbishop Lépine from Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa, will be broadcast prior to the March on May 13th at 9:30 am CST. Regional Masses for Life are being filmed from coast to coast and will run on MarchForLife.ca, including a Winnipeg Tri-Diocesan Mass on May 10. For a schedule of all events, click here.
