VOCATIONS PRAYER CALENDARS
“Behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or to the consecrated life there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone: a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father, a community... Vocations are born in prayer and from prayer; and only through prayer can they persevere and bear fruit." - Pope Francis, April 21, 2013

I will make myself available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation by appointment, of course honouring the government’s physical distancing guidelines. Please call the parish office at (204)467-9016 to book an appointment.
How to continue to support our parishes…….
We wish to thank all those parishioners who have so generously dropped off their envelopes or cheques to the parish office, as well as those who continue to support the parish through auto-debit.
As we continue to find ways to support each other, let us remember that the church also needs support. For those families who are able, you can mail in your collection envelopes (Box 1159, Stonewall, MB R0C 2Z0). Post-dated cheques would be acceptable. Please find a copy of the auto debit form in the link below.
Christ the King Church
Most importantly, let us continue to pray for one another and for an end to this pandemic.
Praying with our Children
"As parents, we find that we pray often and earnestly for our children. We ask God to keep them safe, to make them well, and to help us as we care for them. But there is another gift of prayer that comes to us: the gift of praying with our children. There is a big difference between the child’s prayer and that of the adult. It is precisely this difference that makes it such a privilege to pray with little children. They lead us to an enjoyment of God that we may have been missing. When allowed to pray naturally, their simple words come straight from the heart."
