ON THE WAY Magazine

We are disciples on the way, said Archbishop Richard Gagnon in his Post-Synodal Proclamation that encapsulated the work of the Holy Spirit in our midst over the past few years. On the Way, the magazine, is one of the fruits of our Synod process. 

On the Way seeks to further the work of God in our time by highlighting the key and pivotal Catholic stories in our community. The articles are not just the reporting of past news stories - rather, with great discernment, On the Way tells us: Here are the important issues in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. Let us reflect on them carefully, and let us pray on them together as a community

On the Way is made possible through your generosity - of time, talent, and treasure! We sincerely thank you for your continued support of Archdiocesan pastoral programs. You can further support our efforts by following our Archdiocese of Winnipeg social media platforms, and sharing the Good News found in our articles through your own social networking outlets. We sincerely thank you in advance!

The directory includes detailed contact information for diocesan priests (including retired priests), religious priests, deacons, seminarians, brothers and sisters. Other sections provide contact details for retreat centres and organizations, educational institutions, social services and religious communities.

The directory is updated annually beginning in late summer with a target deadline for completion in late September. Individuals and organizations currently in the directory are contacted to provide required updates.
