MONTREAL - An extreme cold warning didn't deter members of Montreal's Catholic community on Saturday, as they braved a chilly walk up Mount Royal to commemorate the 375th anniversary of the raising of the cross on the summit.

Several dozen people sang Christmas carols and New Year's songs as they marched in -20 C weather behind leaders who were dressed in 17th century outfits and carrying a wooden cross.

The walk was led by Montreal Archbishop Christian Lepine as well a man and a woman dressed as Montreal founders Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve and Jeanne Mance.

They know better than to talk politics with the neighbours when they visit.“We tend to avoid conversations with any U.S. folks regarding (U.S. President Donald) Trump. We don’t initiate that. From an outsider looking in, you really don’t know what you’re talking about,” says Dan.Politics have nothing to do with the Craigs’ enjoyment of their Florida home and they dream of spending more time there in the future.“If anything surprised me about buying in the U.S., it would be the relative ease of the purchase.

The Mount Royal Cross is a monument on top of Mount Royal in Montreal , Quebec, Canada. It stands at the northeastern peak of the mountain and overlooks the eastern part of the island. Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the city's founder, erected the first cross on Mount Royal in 1643

Lepine said De Maisonneuve, a French military officer, first erected a wooden cross on Mount Royal on Jan. 6, 1643, to thank God for sparing the city from flooding.

"On Christmas Eve, there had been a rising of the St. Lawrence River and they were afraid to lose everything," he said in an interview.

"So they prayed to God and said, 'If you spare us this flood, I'll put a cross on Mount Royal.'"

The march ended with a ceremony that included a brief moment of silence and a prayer service beneath the giant LED-lit cross that now tops the mountain.

Stephen Otvos, a priest from the diocese, described Saturday's event as "beautiful, although cold."

"We commemorate that day (when the cross was raised), but also our time together as a Christian community, and to share the message that the cross is a sign of love for all humanity," he said.

Mount Royal Park, aka parc du Mont - Royal , is one of Montreal 's top attractions. He named the mount in honor of his patron, Francis I of France. Reaching 100 feet in height, the Mont Royal illuminated cross was erected in 1924 and has since become one of Montreal ’s most iconic landmarks.

The current illuminated steel cross, which is over 30 metres tall, was erected in 1924 after local volunteers selling stamps raised over $10,000 towards its cost.

The 26-ton structure looms over the city's skyline and is visible from up to 80 km away on a clear day, according to the city.

It has been renovated several times, and has been lit by LED bulbs since 2009.

Lepine says the cross remains an important symbol for many Montrealers, whether or not they're religious.

"It's part of the face of Montreal and it's a (symbol) that it's important not only for those who believe in Jesus Christ but also for all Montreal and greater Montreal to rally around," he said.

Lifetime announces Meghan Markle and Prince Harry TV movie .
Lifetime has put a film chronicling the romance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle into development, the cable network announced Sunday at the 2018 winter TCA press tour. Casting is currently underway. Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story is being described as the romantic tale of a beloved prince and his new fiancée. The film will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress. Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals last year, is on hand to direct. Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss are executive producers. No premiere date has been set, but the film appears destined for a May launch, in the lead-up to the May 19 royal wedding. After all, this is not Lifetime’s first movie in this particular area: The network previously produced William & Kate: The Movie, about the build-up to the wedding between Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton, and it premiered just 11 days before the big day in 2011. Prince Harry and Markle capped their year-and-a-half-long whirlwind romance with an anticipated engagement announcement last fall, via Clarence House. “His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month,” the statement read. “Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.” Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story will premiere in 2018.
