Praying the Divine Office with the Archbishop

Staff Faith Development Program Travels to the Archdiocesan Offices

PowerPrayerOn November 20th, the staff of SCCS visited the Archdiocesan Offices, the hub of the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. His Grace, Archbishop Richard Gagnon, led the 25 adult educators through a dialogue about the power of prayer. After sharing an overview of what prayer is, how Christian prayer differs from other faiths and offering some concrete examples, His Grace then led the group into the Chapel and together we prayed the Divine Office.

The afternoon ended with a tour of the facility led by Robert Praznik, Director of Education.

Throughout the year, the staff will be visiting various locations within the Archdiocese and experiencing the different prayers styles offered within the charisms of the religious institutions. Our next trip will be to visit St. Mary’s Academy where we will be introduced to the charism of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.
