Remembrance and Gratitude

November is a month of remembrance and gratitude, from the start of the month with All Saints Day and All Souls Day to the end of the month with Thanksgiving Day. We remember with gratitude those we love who have died, and whom we believe are with God in eternal life.

Twelve years ago, the then Pope Benedict XVI wrote a letter, an encyclical, Spe Salve, which is Latin for “In Hope We Are Saved.” This letter to all the people of God still stands as a masterpiece of consolation for any who have lost a loved one in death, and for any who have lost someone with whom they were angry and never reconciled. Death is hard in both realities.

Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Marguerite Bourgeoys in the East Kootenay’s

Cranbrook associates and a number of parishioners enjoyed an evening presentation by Sr. Norma Gallant, CND.
