Dear Camp Monahan Supporters

Last updated on September 16, 2014
Dear Monahan Alumni/Supporter/Friend, Camp Monahan has been celebrating 70 years of summer camping this summer!  We are very proud and excited to celebrate the number of children, staff and volunteers who have spent their summers at Monahan throughout the years.  Even more significant is the valuable learning experience each person has taken home with them at the end of their camping experience.  It is a time when young people from all walks of life have been brought together for four, six, ten or twelve short days with one common goal - to grow spiritually, mentally and physically.

Lessons From Camp

Last updated on July 29, 2014
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

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

Last updated on June 17, 2014

My dear friends, I try to go around and visit our Catholic Schools as often as I can. I find there is something special there. I talk with people who are involved in Catholic Education about why this is. It usually comes round to thedifferencethat is found in our schools compared to other schools. The difference is found in the way we deal with and treat the children and young people who come to us to learn. That difference comes directly from the faith that all of you who staff our schools and offices have within you.

Dear friends, we set out today on a great adventure for our Church here in Regina as we begin the Formation Program for the Permanent Diaconate for our Archdiocese. I consider this to be a blessing from God and I say “thank you” to God for all of you who are candidates and for you wives who journey through this time of formation with you. You have acted positively in response to what is a call from God and I pray that the four years ahead will bear much fruit for you and for Jesus Christ and his Church.

My dear friends , we gather once again on the eve of the Assumption of Mary to give honour to Mary, the Mother of God; to give voice to show our devotion and our love for this unique woman whom Jesus, her son, has given to us to be our mother, and to celebrate the  Eucharist, to say “thank you” to God for all the love and all the blessings God has given to us, especially through the intercession of Mary, our mother.
