Campion Recieves Legacy

Last updated on August 18, 2015

A legacy gift to Campion College and Luther College at the University of Regina gives students both at home and abroad an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of different cultures through international study. The $1.0 million gift bequeathed by the late Anna Kovacs supports The Martin Kovacs Scholarship Fund and allows for the establishment of future international scholarships.

The Martin Kovacs Scholarship Fund sponsors four Grade 11 students from Hungary each year to study in Regina. The two-month summer program is facilitated jointly by Campion College and Luther College. Mrs. Kovacs established the fund in 2001 in memory of her husband Dr. Martin Kovacs, who passed away in 2000. Since its establishment, fifty-two students have participated in the program.

“I learned so many things in the [past] two months that I would not have learned that quickly [at home]. My English is better, and I had the opportunity to meet new people and discover other viewpoints...

Holy Rosary School Centennial

Last updated on June 1, 2015

Holy Rosary Catholic Elementary School has for 100 years been an iconic fixture in this city’s historic Cathedral district. Thursday, May 21, that century of existence and service to the children of the area was celebrated in a day-long festival that began with mass at 10:00 in Holy Rosary Cathedral, followed by a big tent performance by Elevation Axis from O’Neil Catholic High School; fun, games and food throughout the afternoon and a live performance in the evening by three different bands rounded out the day. It all tied in nicely with the annual Cathedral Village Arts Festival held that week.

Reverend Lorne Crozon, Holy Rosary Cathedral Pastor and Vicar General, celebrated the mass in place of Regina Archbishop Daniel Bohan who was ill. “Today we are celebrating 100 wonderful years of education,” said Crozon in his homily, “Let us give thanks to God for His presence in our schools and in our lives.”

Holy Rosary School was constructed about the same time as the...

Moving in Faith Event - RCSD

Last updated on June 1, 2015

On Sunday, May 24th, the Regina Catholic School Division celebrated faith, fun, and fitness and the 6th-annual Moving in Faith event. Over 650 participants showed up and took part in a 2km or 5km walk/run/wheel around the track at Canada Games Athletic Complex in Douglas Park. Moving in Faith 2015 raised over $1,700 for Archdiocese of Regina youth ministries such as summer camps and youth leadership camps.

 

Thank you to all the staff, volunteers, sponsors, and participants who made Moving in Faith 2015 such a huge success!

Dealing with transgender children is not a sexual issue, it’s an identity issue, said Catholic Ethicist Reverend Mark Miller C.Ss.R in a symposium address March 20 to about 75 participants in Holy Rosary Cathedral Hall, “and it’s not easy.” The audience was comprised of Catholic School Board officials, teachers and administrators from southern Saskatchewan Catholic school boards.

Miller was the keynote speaker in the first of two symposiums sponsored by the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards’ Association (SCSBA) in advance of a document the SCSBA will issue as support for all Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards. The second was scheduled for March 24 in Saskatoon.

Besides Miller, Evangelical Lutheran Pastor Reverend Carla Blakley, a long time advocate for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) people, gave a lively and sometimes humorous description of her journey to become a Lutheran pastor and the discrimination she encountered. Blakely said she is...

Regina Roman Catholic Ratepayer Judy Corkery doesn’t like the idea of the school division being part of a Military Reserve training option for some of its students. A motion she offered at the February 2 Annual General Meeting passed 6-2 that the board inform the provincial government it doesn’t want the program and instead offer a Peace Studies Program. She said military training is contrary to Catholic social teachings that call for promotion of human dignity and peacemaking.

The Military Reserve program was accepted by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education then offered by the military to Regina Catholic and Regina Public School Boards. It is open to a limited number of Grades 11 and 12. Ten students from Regina Catholic and seven from Regina Public are enrolled. It is unique in Canada in that it offers two class credits if completed successfully. Those accepted take a class taught by the military once a week at the Regina Armoury. Students are not paid for the class but...
