Youth Liturgical Leadership Graduation

Last updated on June 26, 2014
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

Swift Current Youth Retreat

Last updated on June 17, 2014
“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

Thank You From Camp Kenosee

Last updated on May 6, 2014
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.

Dear friends, I certainly commend you all for coming out on this wintery spring day to give witness to the Gospel of Life. For all of us who follow Jesus as the Way, the Truth and the Life, for all of us who follow his teachings as our guide through life, to stand up and proclaim the Gospel of Life something that is very, very important.

Dear friends,

Today we bring to a close the Easter Octave. Perhaps many don’t realize that the Church celebrates Easter Day for eight days. It is such an important event that one day is not enough, so for eight days in the prayers of the Church it is Easter Day.

My dear friends, we come together to celebrate Mass on this Canada Day to say thank you to God for the blessings we enjoy and to pray for our country. In the Opening Prayer of this Mass we pray for three things. First we pray for our political leaders, for those who govern us. We ask God to grant them wisdom. Wisdom is a word we use a lot. I have just finished celebrating Confirmation in the archdiocese, visiting thirty parishes and Confirming hundreds of children. As you all know well, Wisdom is the first gift given to us when we receive...
