Winnipeg, Manitoba - Did you know that news about the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, and other faith groups in Winnipeg, can be found on a regular basis in the Winnipeg Free Press—and for free on the Free Press website? It’s true! We are part of a unique project that supports increased faith coverage in the Free Press. Since the project started last March, over 150 articles about faith have appeared in the newspaper and on its website.

In His Name: CCCB Statement on the Persecution of ChristiansNov 4, 2019

Ottawa, Ontario - November 4, 2019, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), through the Commission for Justice and Peace, and in consultation with Aid to the Church in Need Canada, is releasing a statement entitled In His Name: Statement on the Persecution of Christians in advance of Red Wednesday (20 November 2019), which is a day of solidarity and prayer dedicated to raising awareness about the persecution of Christians throughout the world. The information presented in the statement outlines various types of persecution experienced and the reality of individuals and communities who suffer because of their faith in Christ, most notably in countries where Christians are in the minority. Understanding that all Catholic faithful have a role to help alleviate the suffering of others, this statement offers possible suggestions of spiritual and material support for the millions of men, women and children for whom persecution is a daily reality.
