Catholic Register Staff

With the union representing school support staff threatening to go on strike again beginning Monday, Catholic school boards in the Toronto area are preparing to close their doors for in-person learning.

The full text of the address delivered by Cardinal Collins' at the 43rd annual Cardinal's Dinner on November 15, 2022.

As the Government of Ontario and striking support workers agreed to head back to the bargaining table, school boards across Ontario will begin welcoming students back to class Tuesday morning.

Kinghorn’s compassion 

Deacon Robert Kinghorn’s columns are so inspirational. He strikes me as a true Christian who really imitates Christ. He exudes love and compassion by engaging in a difficult ministry to the “wounded and unwanted.” I thank God for his work, and I hope more labourers come forward because that particular harvest is so great.

The Archdiocese of Toronto is throwing its support behind a new campaign that is encouraging all levels of government to provide better access to quality care and resources for people to steer them away from an expanded medical assistance in dying (MAiD) regime.

Habits of being

The article in your Oct. 16 issue referencing Fr. Dan Donovan’s art collection, which covers much of the available wall space at the University of St. Michael’s College, contains a line that surprised me: “The priest learned long ago that categorizing art and artists along denominational lines can distort and block any real understanding.”

Magazine huzzahs

I want to extend my congratulations to the staff of The Catholic Register for the excellent commemorative magazine Penance and Progress. The articles are thorough and thought-provoking. 

Blocking transparency

I find the Oct. 2 editorial “Rebuild trust” mind boggling.

Shrine on

Michael Swan’s Sept. 24 article on the Martyrs’ Shrine tells us the community is making efforts to be more welcoming to all Indigenous peoples, including giving them free access to the site. It’s a commendable approach that genuinely helps promote reconciliation and solidarity.

The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement-Graymoor, the Office for Promoting Christian Unity of the Archdiocese of Toronto, and The Catholic Register are proud to present the 2024 Friars' Student Writing Contest.
