CFI Youth Rally Rosary... Flies

Last updated on February 25, 2015
CATHOLIC FAITH INVESTIGATION YOUTH RALLY They floated a Rosary in the sky. The Hail Mary’s were green, the Our Fathers. Black and the silver cross at the bottom flashed occasionally as the sun glinted off it in a clear blue sky.  Thanks to an extremely rare windless prairie day it went straight up from the O’Neil High School football field for several hundred feet before very slowing drifting off to the east. It was one of the highlights of a March 31day of investigating the Roman Catholic Faith for 70 Grade nine and 12s and about 30 Archdiocesan youth leaders who with a few adult chaperones came from all over the Regina Archdiocese to participate in day filled with activities, talks and music while learning more about their faith.

Be Encouraged!

Last updated on February 25, 2015
This past weekend, I was part of a conference in Calgary open to all those in Western Canada who are interested in working with young people! It was hosted by WCACYM (Western Canadian Association of Catholic Youth Ministers) It was an amazing, grace filled weekend! I have never been so encouraged (and tired!!). It was so encouraging to see people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to see how the "new evangelization" can be lived out with our young people. We had professional youth ministers, volunteer youth workers, diocesan directors, camp directors, priests, representatives of NET, all in attendance. We prayed and learned, discerned and networked. AND we laughed until we could hardly catch our breath! Read More

Archbishop and CCO: Youth In The Church

Last updated on January 28, 2015
Sitting comfortably on an upholstered rocking chair and looking much like a grandfather speaking to his grandchildren, Regina Archbishop Daniel Bohan told a group of young adults they have an important role to play in the life of the Church. The informal gathering of Catholic Christian Outreach (CC) a university centred youth group invited the Archbishop to speak on a subject of his choice and to meet with local participants in CCO. The 25 sat in chairs, love seats, chesterfields and on the floor of the Aquinas Room used by the parish’s youth ministry. Bohan, frequently quoting Pope Francis and Evangelii Gaudium (Joy of the Gospel), said young people like all baptized Catholics are called to be evangelists but not evangelists going door to door like Jehovah Witness.

Department: Development and Pastoral Services

Reports to: Development Director
Casual/Flexible: 21 hours per week

Position Summary
The Administrative Assistant is responsible for administrative duties primarily in the Appeal Office with supplementary administrative support to the Director of Development and the Director of Pastoral Services.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In a Lenten letter to Canadian Catholics printed in the Feb. 2015 Living with Christ, Brazilian Bishop Enemesio Angelo Lazzaris writes, “Sisters and Brothers of Canada, when we share in the consecrated bread and wine of communion, we are making a commitment to fight hunger and its root causes….  This commitment must always, especially during Lent, be accompanied by acts of solidarity, such as those we have seen through our many years of partnership with Development and Peace.”  Bishop...

Injustices and environmental degradation make it abundantly clear that society is in serious need of reconstruction. What is the dream?  How about a vision of personal fulfillment and peace for all instead of visions of power and profit for a few? Here is the big surprise--good campaigns for the transformation of the world can be run by a few committed people, functioning in the basements of churches throughout the Archdiocese, seeking to be a catalyst for the change.
