Preparing for and running a summer camp is an incredible amount of work! Yet every year summer, camp stands out as one of the ministry highlights of my year. So I have to ask myself why.....?
-Is it the steady diet of hotdogs and hambugers? Unlikely.
-Is it the 3-4 hours of sleep each night? Nope!
-How about that smell....a blend of mosquito repellant, sunscreen and unwashed clothes? Think I could live pretty nicely without that particular fragrance.-And the bugs...a cocktail of wasps AND mosquitos AND fish flies AND ticks? Definitely not!!Read More
Grade Six children from Regina’s Roman Catholic schools are becoming more involved in their parishes and their community, the result of the Youth Liturgical Leadership Program. “It has resulted in students preparing excellent liturgies for their schools and in their parishes,” said Miles Meyers Coordinator for Religious Education. One hundred and thirty Grade Six students from 14 of the 24 elementary schools graduated from the program at a special May 29 mass at Holy Trinity Church. It was the largest graduating class representing the highest number of schools since the program was initiated by the School Division and the Regina Archdiocese in 2001-2002. Read More
“Who am I?” and “What is the Plan?” are life-long questions that we journey through despite our path or age. This year Michelle Braden and her team of four young adults had the opportunity to work with grade seven and eights in Moose Jaw and Swift Current from May. 20-28th. The theme of the day retreats were “Who am I? And what is the Plan?” It was a blessing to be able to spend a day and focus on two main questions that society causes us, and especially young people, to ask often. Society says that you are what you do, say and produce, however God lovingly tells us that we are His Child and that is the core of our being and definition of worth.Read More

When my wife, Edrina, and I came to Kenosee, in the summer of 2013, to help out at the Kenosee Boys and Girls Camp (www.CampKenosee.net), we never dreamt we would be asked to stay here and become the Interim Directors. I remember sitting down in our Mother Teresa Centre and saying to God, “Well, Lord, you need to send us people with your heart because I’m not sure I know what to do.” That very week in July, Michelle Braden - the Archdiocesan Youth Director, arrived at the camp.
Kenosee Boys and Girls camp is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Archdiocese of Regina and is located about twenty-two kilometers north of Carlyle, in the beautiful Moose Mountain Provincial Park.Read More
