Here’s What’s New!

“The most poignant artifact for me are the braids,” said Dr. Shauneen Pete, as she explained the meaning of the Memorial Blanket art work set up along a wall in the University of Regina’s Research and Innovation Centre Atrium. The Memorial Blanket was put together by West Coast Artist and Master Carver Carey Newman. Residential school artifacts were collected from across Canada and placed in panels of the 40 foot wide work. The art work contains everything from an old door, worn out skates, a shoe, door handles, a clock, pieces of wood, glass, photos etc. Old books and encyclopedias occupy slots along the bottom of the work. A slide show of old photos and letters display on an old table behind the Memorial Blanket. Read More

My dear brothers and sisters, our Catholic faith has been keeping us busy over this last week and a half. During the last ten days we have celebrated four great Feast Days of our faith in Jesus Christ. We have gathered as the Church to celebrate the Birth of Jesus which gave us the assurance that in every aspect of our life, Jesus is God-with-us. We are never left alone or abandoned.

My dear friends, in my younger days, I used to ask why is New Year’s a holy day of Obligation? Everybody is out celebrating the New Year on New Year’s Eve, so they don’t have time to go to Mass and on New Year’s Day everyone is too tired to go to Mass.  Everyone who went to Confession during Advent to get ready for Christmas finds that within a week they are in the state of sin again because they missed Mass on a Holy Day of Obligation! Seemed strange to me.

My dear brothers and sisters, we continue our celebration of the Nativity of our Lord, Jesus Christ on this Sunday that follows Christmas. As soon as we talk about the birth of a baby, we very quickly begin to think about the family that welcomes this baby. On this Sunday following Christmas we turn our minds and our hearts towards the family of Jesus – to Mary and Joseph and their new child. And of course when we do that we also immediately think about our own families.
