2019 NWLF Theme: Listening to the Gospel as a Family - Renewing the Family Bond
Welcome! Bienvenue! Bitaemo! This year, our three Catholic Archbishops in (southern) Manitoba invite families to grow in faith by reading the Gospel together as a family. A wonderful goal, but how? To help us all grow closer to Christ through His Word, they propose Lectio Divina, an ancient method of prayer with Scriptures, sharing its impact with family members, and contemplating God’s goodness in our lives.
In this video, Archbishop Richard Gagnon (Archdiocese of Winnipeg) and members of the NWLF tri-diocesan committee chat about what lectio divina might look like when prayed together by families.
Who We Are
We are Catholics from all three archdioceses in Manitoba, working together to organize events, promote prayer and reflection within our families.
What We Do
We encourage members of our community to pray for Life. We also organize activities during the National Week for Life and the Family held in May.
Our Committee consists of members from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, Archdiocese of Winnipeg, and Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg.
