Celebrating the Feast of Saint Josemaria in Canada

The feast of Saint Josemaria (June 26) will be commemorated throughout Canada with numerous concelebrations. Enclosed you will find the list of scheduled Masses.

There are some who pass through life as through a tunnel, without ever understanding the splendour, the security and the warmth of the sun of faith. As he was giving out Holy Communion that priest felt like shouting out: this is Happiness I am giving to you !

St. Josemaria, The Way 575
