A Bit of History ...
The Myriam Family originated in Baie-Comeau, Quebec, and was warmly welcomed in 1978 by Bishop Jean-Guy Couture. The canonical recognition of the Myriam Family took place in September 2006 with Bishop Pierre Morissette erecting it as a Public Association of Lay Faithful, in order to become an Institute of Consecrated Life. He also approved ad experimentum the Constitutions of the community; reiterated by bishop Jean-Pierre Blais in 2010, new bishop of Baie-Comeau.
This New Community, a Spiritual Family of consecrated life, is made up of sisters, brothers and brothers-priests. Their time is devoted to prayer and evangelization everywhere in the world. Since 1978, the Community has grown to 12 foundations, namely 6 in Quebec, 1 in New Brunswick, 1 in Saskatchewan, 2 in Haiti, 1 in Belgium, 1 in Russia and one in Uruguay.. Thousands of people relate to the Myriam Family, either by precise commitments (as affiliate members or through other forms of spiritual kinship) or by nourishing their life and commitment of faith with the specifics of a spirituality of communion.
Through its missionary spirit, the Myriam Family brings a message of hope in the Church, especially to the family and the youth.
The Myriam Family was welcomed in the diocese of Regina by Archbishop Peter Mallon on November 1st, 2000 and, after two years in Gravelbourg, is now established in the heart of the city of Regina.
