Centres de Service Canada - Les décorations de Noël interdites

Here is an English translation of this short French article:


There will be no Christmas decorations in the Service Canada Centres this year. These decorations are prohibited.

This is stipulated in a note circulated in early November by the Senior Executive Service of Canada, Marc Simoneau.

According to press reports, the Christmas wreaths, trees and other symbols of the Nativity must be absent from public areas in the service centers.

Officials explained that the measure is to avoid complaints about religious beliefs. There are 118 centers in federal services in Quebec.

  1. Why is it we keep hearing that there are comlaints but we never actualy see or hear any complainers ?
    And if there really are people who are offended, why can,t we just talk about it and try to come up with a resolution that treats everybody with dignity and respect.
    Is it not at least a possibilty that some of our "beautiful" traditional ways of public celebration -that has a possitive influence on our spiritual and psychological being- may have a contray effect on another? We are so quick to assume that "they" are complaining because "they" don't like us.Maybe we are wrong but we can never know if we can't listen.
    Evolution has zero effect on truth but the truth does call on us to evolve,change,grow,let go of the dead.
    I'm not suggesting we turn our back on tradition at all, but Life is more important to Jesus than our plans for celebration.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
