Online Alpha course

Our Lady of Peace Parish (Fredericton) is offering an online Alpha course beginning Thursday, June 11th from 7:00 to 8:15 pm.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.  Each session looks at a different question that people can have about faith and is designed to create conversation.  It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together. Perfect for people looking to reconnect to their faith, those exploring faith for the first time or for those just looking to have great honest conversations about their faith.  Open to everyone regardless of their location and faith tradition!

Re-opening of churches on Solemnity of Pentecost

With the announcement today by the Government of New Brunswick, we are able to move to the Yellow phase of social distancing. This allows for gatherings of up to 50 people as of May 29, 2020.

More information will be forthcoming, including protocols in place to ensure the wellness and safety of parishioners and clergy. This will mean certain limitations on gatherings as we cautiously open. Read Bishop Riesbeck’s letter announcing these steps by downloading it below.

Annual financial report now available

The Finance Council is pleased to announce that the 2019 Financial Report for the Parish has been completed and is ready for distribution.

For those wishing to receive the report at this point in time, it will be available at each worship site this Sunday May 10th from 10:30-11:30 am.

A table with the reports will be at the entrance to each church. The Finance Council will have representatives present to aid in directing you while following the social distancing guidelines.

Thank you in advance for respecting social distancing when picking up your report.

New Freeman now available

We’re pleased to let you know that digital copies of the New Freeman, the publication of the Diocese of Saint John, is now available for download on our website. When received, we will upload a copy in the call-out box on the right column of the site. Parishioners can now download the May 1 issue.

Learning from isolation

This time of isolation is hard for everyone. But I’ve been inspired by those who have practiced distancing measures as their vocation. Click here to read this excellent advice given by this nun from New Jersey.
