Vocations

“Lord, You search me and You know me.” 

God has planted our vocation deep into our hearts.  Only He knows the plans He has for each one of us.  Through our baptism, we are called to Know Christ, Love Christ and Serve Christ and sanctity is our highest calling and our first vocation.  In discerning where God is calling us, we must continue to grow in an intimate and personal relationship and conversation with Christ.  Whether our call is priesthood, consecrated life, marriage or single life, we must discuss with Christ, “Is this the best path for me to holiness?”

Deacon Harper Boucher by Frank Flegel, special to Grandin Media

He was once a special representative for Interpol at the United Nations, working with countries developing anti-terrorism policies. Now he is Deacon Harper Boucher of the Archdiocese of Regina.

“I’m feeling very humbled, I’m feeling very blessed by the Lord. All night I could feel the Holy Spirit working within me. It’s something I was really looking forward to,” said Boucher, a provincial court judge and a 40-year veteran of the RCMP, following his June 15th ordination to the permanent diaconate.

“I am at a stage in my life where I have a lot of experience, I think I have a lot to contribute. Perhaps I will develop a program for the elderly in my parish.”

Boucher’s career as a Mountie took him to postings across Canada,...

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.
