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.

MONTREAL: RUNALPHA FOR CATHOLICS

“The Church which ‘goes forth’ is a community of missionary disciples who take the first step, who are involved and supportive, who bear fruit and rejoice. An evangelizing community knows that the Lord has taken the initiative, … and therefore we can move forward, boldly take the initiative, go out to others, seek those who have fallen away, stand at the crossroads and welcome the outcast… Let us try a little harder to take the first step and to become involved.” – Pope Francis
DO YOU DREAM OF BEING PART OF A MISSIONARY CHURCH? OF HAVING A PARISH FULL OF MISSIONARY DISCIPLES? OF A COMMUNITY THAT TAKES INITIATIVE TO CALL HOME THE LOST SHEEP? COME OUT AND FIND OUT HOW.
RunAlpha for Catholics: A Day of Envisioning and Training will be held on Saturday,
November 21 from 10am-3pm at Our Lady of Fatima Parish (875 Marcel-Laurin Blvd., St-Laurent). Cost is $15 online or $20 at the door (lunch included).
