The Healing Word
Click here to download the Bishop's Blog.
Catholic Connections in Restorative Justice (CC in RJ) held its founding Conference at Sainte Anne de Beaupré, Quebec. How providential that this ministry of the Church, which is as old as the Church itself as we recall Christ the Prisoner and Victim, starts afresh on the 350th anniversary of the oldest parish in North America. The theme: The healing WORD restoring wounded lives captures the unique grace of Christ’s life in and through the Church to heal all those touched by crime.
