SAVE THE DATE!

Join us for our next Evangelization Network Gathering on Wednesday, February 15  from 7pm-9pm at the Archdiocesan offices (2000 Sherbrooke St. West, Montreal).  Mr. Gordon Deery of the Holy Face Association, which promotes the devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus, will be our featured guest. The Holy Face Association was established in Montreal, Canada on May 26, 1976.  The goal of this apostolate is reparation to God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) through contemplative devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus.  This is accomplished through the diffusion of Holy Face pictures, leaflets and medals throughout the world. The apostolate recalls the words of St. Paul ‘that Christ crucified must be preached’”. Contact Lay Evangelist Corey Jolly at 514-931-7311 x251 or cjolly@diocesemontreal.org.
