From roots planted in the troubled north-central neighbourhood of Regina has blossomed a unique group of youth who are making strides to break the cycle of poverty that is their everyday reality.

The students are graduates of Mother Teresa Middle School, a Grade 6-8 school in the heart of a gritty inner city neighbourhood. From the first class of 17 that began in 2011, 11 students have graduated high school and 10 will commence higher learning this month. Four more will continue their high school studies while one is gainfully employed.

The success stories are quite an accomplishment for students raised in the economically disadvantaged area, with its large Indigenous population, that was labelled Canada’s worst neighbourhood by Maclean’s magazine in 2007.

The area has struggled to shed the label ever since. While...

The 50th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae at the beautiful shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Rama, SK was recently celebrated by One More Soul Canada and the Rama parish of St. Anthony. Parents, clergy and professionals sought support and guidance in Christian marriage and family life while the children enjoyed crafts, entertainment, sports and games supplied by Rama’s balloon man, Steven Halifax,  the Myriam Sisters of Regina and Saskatoon Diocesan youth coordinator, Colm Leyne.

The July 13-15th celebration in Rama, focused on the keys to a happy, healthy marriage as Blessed Pope Paul VI wrote in his timely Letter in 1968. Of Human Life clarified and restated the 2000 year old teaching of Holy Mother Church which seeks only the good of her children. “We are deeply convinced that this is truly a great work, both for the world and for the Church, since man cannot find true happiness, toward which he aspires with all his being, other than by respecting the laws inscribed by God in...

Their children lead them to Couples for Christ.

Joel and Jo Ong’s children joined a CFC youth group at their local parish in Regina. Now the Ongs themselves have joined – and, in fact, lead – their local chapter of Couples for Christ, a worldwide association focused on charity and strengthening Christian families.

“They have a good program for kids … and the Church teachings help us to grow as a couple,” said Joel Ong, noting that the Regina chapter of CFC has grown to 98 couples from two in 2009.

Couples for Christ advocates traditional marriage and family values, believing that strong marriages lead to strong families which – in turn – build a strong Catholic Church and society.
CFC originated in Manila, Philippines, and today is a lay ecclesial community of than a million members in 122 groups worldwide. In Canada, CFC has 14,000 members, most of whom have a Filipino background.

“An invaluable sign of...

Confirmation Season 2018

Last updated on July 24, 2018

By Frank Flegel

“In all my years as bishop, confirmations have never gone quite as well,” said Regina Archbishop Donald Bolen. The Archbishop conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation in 29 parishes throughout the archdiocese this year.

Bolen made the focus of each occasion, “the many ways in which we can come to trust that God loves us, starting with how creation speaks to us, and how the human condition itselfis an expression of God’s love, and culminating in the boundless love of God revealed in the dying and rising of Jesus and the sending of the Holy Spirit.” The children were engaged in a question and answer format that invited them to think about the many ways that God enters into a loving conversation with us, including the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.

He said he is always mindful in Confirmation homilies that he is striving to speak to the kids at an age level they can understand, but also speaking to parents, some of whom who may have onlya...
