Our Mission in Calgary
On October 8th, 2014, the Community Seeds of the Word arrived in Calgary. We started our mission at Our Lady of Fatima Parish (Portuguese speaking Parish) running a bible and a couple’s group, organizing some retreats, providing spiritual help to the Scouts group and liturgical help in many ways.
Since the beginning of our mission, we were members of the Women Vocation Committee for planning retreats and activities for young women to discover their vocation. We have been invited to help some Parishes with youth groups and sacramental preparations as well as some schools to speak with our children and youth about Religious Life and Sacramental life, and it has been a wonderful experience for us to announce the seeds of the Word and also to share our own vocations.
"Like the Church, the nature of our community is missionary. The Community does not exist for itself, but exists to spread the Good News of the Risen Christ, His eternal Kingdom, to all men, without distinction. "
Deacon Georges Bonneval - Founder of the Seeds of the Word Community
