Student Board Members At 1st Meeting

Last updated on February 8, 2018

By Frank Flegel

REGINA……Bronwyn Heerspink said she was quite pleased at the reception she and two of her Miller High School classmates received when they attended their first meeting of the Regina Catholic School Division’s Board of Trustees February 5 meeting.

“I was a little bit worried. It’s kind of daunting when you first go in at the start but it’s very open, very welcoming and I felt quite comfortable.” Heerspink is one of several high school students, elected by students at their schools to become student Board members for the Regina Catholic School Division. She initially thought that as student trustees they would be just “poster children to sit there with a smile on their faces,” but she came to realize differently. “They really do care about our opinion and our voices and that’s very comforting.”   

The idea for this venture originated with the division’s Director of Education, Domenic Scuglia. He joined the Division last year from Ontario where...

February 23-Pray and Fast For Peace

Last updated on February 8, 2018

Pope Francis has invited Roman Catholics, all Christians and members of other religions to observe Feb. 23 as a day of prayer, fasting and initiatives for peace.

On Sunday Pope Francis while addressing tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square for his weekly blessing, urged everyone to ‘say no’ to violence and conflict. The appeal is because of the “tragic prolonging” of conflicts around the world.

Feb. 23 is a Friday in the first full week of season of Lent, during which fasting from food and extra acts of charity are encouraged as a sign of penitence. Pope Francis said “everyone, in their own consciences, before God, should ask ‘what can I do for peace?’”
“Surely, we can pray but not only: each one of us can say ‘no’ to violence in their own way, because victories obtained through violence are false victories while working for peace benefits all,” he said.  He specifically invited non-Catholics and non-Christians to join the initiative in any way they...

Hospital Chaplains Still On The Job

Last updated on February 6, 2018

REGINA…Hospital chaplains in Saskatchewan, remain on the job but the process to obtain their services is awkward and not always successful, said Nick Jesson, of the Regina Archdiocese.  He is the Archdiocesan ecumenical coordinator and one of a team of people trying to get the Spiritual care office restored to the health district. The office acted as the coordination centre for the hospital chaplains. “It used to be when patients were being admitted they were asked if they required the services of a chaplain and if so their faith denomination. Lists for each denomination were prepared and given to the spiritual care office and made available to the chaplains of the different faith denominations.  It was simple and straight forward,” said Jesson. Now, if a patient wants the services of a chaplain, and Jesson emphasised the denominational chaplains, Anglican, Lutheran Roman Catholic, United and one multi-faith chaplain, are available, the patient has to ask staff on the hospital...

Celebrating Consecrated Life

Last updated on February 6, 2018

By Frank Flegel

 

For eight years running, the Regina Catholic School Division has hosted a lunch to honour those who have chosen to live a consecrated life. This year’s lunch was held February 1 in the Gratton Room at the Division’s office and attracted the largest group ever. 

We have 38 people here today,” said Miles Meyers the Division’s Coordinator for Religious Education. “It’s twice the number we had last year. Some have even come from outside the city.”

Most who attended the luncheon were members of Sister congregations, but several members of the Madonna House Apostolate who operate the Marian Centre soup kitchen in downtown Regina were also in attendance.  School Board Chair Robert Bresciani welcomed everyone and explained the lunch is held each year as a small gesture of thanks for the efforts those living a consecrated life contribute to and support the Division’s work of Catholic education. Trustees and members of the Division’s senior...
