Last updated on October 17, 2014
Dear Churches in Northern, Central and Southern Saskatchewan, Below are three bulletin announcements describing upcoming programs at Queen’s House Retreat and Renewal Centre in Saskatoon. If you have room in your church bulletin (and we appreciate that space is very limited) we invite you to include one or more of these announcements, depending on the interests and needs of the members of your congregation. A quick note: the Transitions Grief Retreat is an excellent opportunity for those who live a fair distance from Saskatoon. At the past two retreats there have been participants who have driven 6 hours+ to attend this retreat. The other two programs might be more of a possibility for those who live in or near Saskatoon.

My dear sisters and brothers, it is a great pleasure for me to be here as your bishop to celebrate with you the 100th anniversary of your parish.
