My name is Brett Salkeld, and I am the Archdiocesan Theologian for the Archdiocese of Regina. In this role I am available to consult on theological questions for the Bishop, the Presbyterate, and for all the faithful of the Archdiocese. My recently launched blog on the Archdiocesan website, sASK-a-Theologian, is a forum where you can ask me any theological question that has been exercising your mind, and I’ll do my best to give you a helpful answer.
My area of academic focus during my theological studies was on ecumenical dialogue. In this capacity I will support our ecumenical commission and parish ecumenical representatives in their efforts to seek mutual understanding and greater unity with our brothers and sisters in Christ who are not in communion with the Catholic Church.
Finally, my biggest project is to get a local diaconal formation program up and running so that we as a diocese can provide an answer to and a place for those men in our community who are called to the permanent diaconate. This is a very large undertaking involving promotion, discernment, administration, and teaching, but it is also a very exciting project with huge potential to serve the people of God in the Archdiocese of Regina for years to come. Having worked with candidates for the diaconate in St. Catharine’s (while studying in Toronto) and Vancouver (during a year at St. Mark’s College), I bring important experience to this project and also a sense of hope and joy from having seen the faith and dedication of the men pursuing this important vocation in those dioceses.
