Youth Groups

Saint-Boniface Cathedral Parish

Our sister, Simone Bastien, pastoral agent for the Saint-Boniface Cathedral Parish in Winnipeg, MB, presents two of their youth groups.

ALPHA Youth Group

Through a series of meetings, youth 12 to 17 can ask questions on life, discover the loving presence of God, and grasp how Christian spirituality can help them make sense of their lives. It is also the opportunity to share with other youths as they discover the YOUCAT catechism. Preparation to the initial sacraments of Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation are also offered through the study of YOUCAT Confirmation for those wishing to receive any of these sacraments. 


Every Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30 pm                  

PrEparation to Baptism for 6 to 9 year-olds 

Children are invited to follow the catechumenate program for one year.  Throughout the year, catechism studies, liturgical rites, and celebrations outline the journey to this sacrament. It is the occasion to discover the Triune God, to deepen one's ties to the Christian community, and to discover God's daily actions.


Every Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 pm

Youths in these groups are supported thanks to additional meetings between Sr. Simone and their parents to create strong family faith moments.
