ARCHBISHOP BLESSES THREE NEW REGINA SCHOOLS
By Frank Flegel

Archbishop Donald Bolen was kept busy in early September blessing three new schools that officially opened for 2017-2018 school year.  

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha School was blessed September 19, Saint Elizabeth School on September 20 and Saint Nicholas School on September 22.  Each of these new Catholic schools is partnered with a public school as part of the Saskatchewan Government’s joint-use schools dictum that saw 18 new schools built throughout the Province, in Regina, Saskatoon, Warman and Martensville. All were built under a Public Private Partnership (P3) Model.

Archbishop Bolen spoke briefly at each school prior to the blessing, giving a bit of history of the Saint each school is named for. The ceremony began with students processing into the gymnasium with the school’s cross and placed it in front of the podium. Then the Archbishop and Deacon Joe Lang began the blessing ceremony.     ...

St. Peter's Colony Celebrates Centennial

Last updated on September 26, 2017

By Frank Flegel

In 1913, Father Henri Metzger looked at the sloped hillside of Manybone Creek near Kronau and envisioned a Shrine to the Blessed Virgin, similar to what he saw at Lourdes, France.

He mobilized the tiny community of St. Peter’s Colony to dig into the hillside and haul rocks from the surrounding fields to build his dream. Four years later, on August 15, 1917, the first pilgrimage was held to the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. Archbishop Olivier Mathieu celebrated the inaugural mass.

One hundred years later the tradition of an annual pilgrimage to the Shrine, on the second weekend of August, has lived on and flourished. 

More than 1,000 people registered for the August 12 and 13 Centennial celebrations this year. It was a two-day celebration, was well attended, but most attended Sunday when Archbishop Donald Bolen celebrated the mass.

The weather co-operated for both days – cloudless skies, hot, but with a...

Archbishop Bolen Celebrates New School Year

Last updated on September 19, 2017

by Frank Flegel

Regina Archbishop Donald Bolen told a church full of educators that teaching is one of the most fundamental human tasks there are.  He celebrated the opening mass for the Regina Catholic School Division to start the 2017-2018 school year. “It is the duty of family and community to teach a newborn child how to live and love and how to be human,” said Bolen. His homily focused on the school division’s theme for the 2017-2018 school year, Let Your Light Shine.

The Archbishop stated, “In the Gospels Christ told his disciples to be the light of the world.” Then he “unpacked” that gospel in terms of the role a teacher plays in Catholic education on behalf of the community and the Church.

What is the light you are to carry? he asked of the more than 1,100 teachers and staff who filled Resurrection Church. “That light is the joy of being alive; it is a deep abiding sense that life is good, that life is blessed.  You are beloved sons and daughters of God...

Historical Event Marked @ Rama

Last updated on August 29, 2017

Over 1000 people gathered at the 76th Annual Pilgrimage at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine on August 14 & 15, The Feast of The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary. Little did Fr. Anthony Sylla OMI realize that through his inspiration in 1939, when he decided to build a grotto in a small hill west of St. Anthony's Church that 78 years later, it would still be a spiritual attraction to so many pilgrims! He felt that when World War II broke out in 1939 that there was a need to pray for peace in the world so a grotto was the place where people could gather to pray. Summoining his parishioners that very evening, he asked that they haul their fieldstones so that the construction could begin. Thus, today, a beautiful Shrine, which is a replica of Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine in France, exists in the Village of Rama attracting thousands of visitors, not only on August 14 and 15, but throughout the entire year.

However, this year was very special and significant as it marked another...
