They have no reverence for parents or old age.They are inpatient of all restraint and what passes for wisdom with us is foolishness with them. As for the girls, they are forward, immodest and unladylike in speech, behavior.”( Attributed to a sermon preached by Peter the Hermit in 1274 A.D.) Read More

In May, myself and a team of young adults were blessed to spend some retreat days with grade 7 & 8 students from Moose Jaw, Swift Current and Shaunavon. Our theme was "I Want to Live Like That!" We spent the day looking at what "that" looks like, or COULD look like in their lives. In exploring all that they are called to be, we spent time looking at the 10 Commandments and exploring the lives of the Saints. We also spent a good chunk of time looking at something called the "Tech 10 Commandments". These commandments are a guideline for our "on-line" lives. The kids had amazing insights as to how each of these "Tech 10" related to the actual 10 Commandments.Read More

Holodomore, the deliberate starvation of people in Ukraine in 1932-33, was recognized in a brief memorial service followed by a question and answer session held at Deshaye Roman Catholic Elementary School November 26.

The service began with the children quickly, orderly and silently filing into the gymnasium with a recording of traditional Ukrainian chanting playing on a portable device. Reverend Malowany greeted them with the traditional Glory Be to Jesus Christ to which, at his prompting, the children replied Jesus Christ Forever. Read More
