The Diocese of Antigonish is asking parishioners to help determine its pastoral direction for the next five years. Bishop Dunn says “The recent events that have touched every person in our diocese have led to a great deal of reflection upon the Church's need to bring justice, compassion, healing, hope and new life to the people of God”. It's important that we all have a voice to achieve healing and direction for our diocesan family.
