Our Parishes Report

Last updated on August 22, 2017

By Frank Flegel

A summary of the Regina Archdiocesan parish reports confirm the obvious, fewer people are regularly attending Mass but it also contains a positive surprise in the growth of youth ministry. “Ten years ago, four of the 134 parishes in the Archdiocese had youth ministry programs and there are now 27,” said Director of Pastoral Services Robert Kowalchuk who compiled the summary. “That’s an 800 per cent growth and that says there is a real, strong concern and investment in (faith by) our youth.”                                                                                                           

The Archdiocese has always collected data from parishes, and in 2003 switched to electronic data collecting which allowed for more detailed information and the ability to do some long-term data analysis and develop trend lines. “It has led us to a pretty robust discussion on how the Church is changing and what the responses are for the Church,” said Kowalchuk....

Holocaust Organizers, Surprize Teachers

Last updated on August 15, 2017

By Frank Flegel

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men is the opening line of a 1930s radio drama. It came to mind while interviewing one of four Regina Catholic School Division teachers who took part in a summer course and tour of the infamous holocaust concentration camps in Germany and Poland.

Ada Paez teaches history at M.C. O’Neil Catholic High School in Regina. “I always thought they had to be mad, insane, but they were ordinary intelligent men who sat down at breakfast in Wannsee House, Germany, (a suburb of Berlin) a beautiful location by a lake, and methodically planned what do about what they called ‘the Jewish problem’. It was actually quite shocking. You look at these men - they all had PhDs - they were extremely smart, they were not idiots and they came up with this plan. It makes you wonder - How?” said Paez. She has a degree in European history and on one of her own travels visited Dachau, one of the more infamous of the extermination camps. “I...

Newcomers to the province through Regina will now have additional help as they improve their English language skills and learn what it takes to obtain and keep a job in their new country. Regina’s Catholic Family Services Society (CFSS) opened its newcomer centre June 28 at the request and help of Immigration Canada. 

“Immigration Canada identified missing needs for newcomers and approached CFSS last year and requested the organization develop programs to meet those needs. CFSS was provided with a grant of $1.4-million to get a program up and running. We are targeting folks who have lower level English than what traditional employment counselling service does, with a focus on youth and women,” said Sandra Urban, newly appointed CFSS Executive Director. She was appointed April 1, 2017, following the retirement of David Sax.

Catholic Family Services had unsuccessfully applied to Immigration Canada for other programs and their application was kept...

SACRED HEART SCHOOL BLESSING

JUNE 23, 2017

By Frank Flegel

June 23 was an appropriate day for the blessing and official opening of Sacred Heart School as it was the day of the Feast of the Sacred Heart, a most solemn day held 19 days after Pentecost on a Friday. Archbishop Donald Bolen, in his brief remarks before he blessed the school, talked about the meaning of the Sacred Heart as a symbol of God’s love for us. “It’s a beautiful thing to have that name for a school. It is the heart of this community and it’s in the heart of the city so it’s going to be a beautiful example and symbol of the kind of world we want to build and we want to live in.” With that he moved around the gathering area where guests and students were seated, blessing them and the school with holy water. He also visited the various classrooms and other areas of the school, blessing them as he moved throughout the school. 

The Archbishop took the occasion to announce that come...
