Quebec Back to Top

Msgr. J. Ernest Lemieux Assembly in Quebec donated $3,000 to the Joseph Patry Center for Faith Education to assist in preparing young people to receive the sacraments of the Church. Since the introduction of Bill 118 in Quebec, faith education has been removed from the schools and has become the sole responsibility of parishes. The council's donation will help the faith education center modernize its services through the acquisition of multimedia and interactive teaching materials.

L'assemblée Mgr. J. Ernest Lemieux au Québec a fait don de 3000$ au Centre d'éducation de la foi Joseph-Patry pour aider dans la formation des jeunes à recevoir les sacrements de l'Église. Depuis l'entrée en vigueur de la Loi 118 au Québec, l'éducation religieuse a été supprimée dans les écoles et elle est devenue une responsabilité réservée aux paroisses. Le don du conseil aidera le centre d'éducation de la foi à moderniser ses services par l'acquisition de matériel interactif et des outils multimédia pour l'enseignement.
