It was a hard-fought battle but when it ended the clergy team beat the student all-star team 23-22 in the first annual Bishop’s Cup basketball tournament held April 17 at Miller Catholic High School.
“I think they gave us a few points,” said the sweating team captain, Regina Archbishop Don Bolen, following the game. His team was made up of clergy from the Regina archdiocese. Their all-star opponents were selected from the student teams that were playing earlier in the evening. They were mostly high school students from Grade eight and up and several played regularly on their school teams. This was the first time the tournament was held in Regina. “We started this in Saskatoon,” said Bolen who was Bishop of Saskatoon prior to his appointment as Archbishop of Regina. “It was such a fun time for everyone we thought to try it here.”
Cheryl Harvey’s Miller High School Catholic Studies 10 class took on the task of organizing the tournament as part of...

They came from all over the Regina Archdiocese, by bus, by car, and some were dropped off by their parents for two days of fun and learning more about their Catholic faith.
It was the annual MyGen youth rally held March 17 and 18 at Michael C. O’Neill Catholic High School. The Regina Archdiocesan Youth Ministry Team led by Youth Ministry Co-ordinators Michelle Braden and Braden Kuntz, and assisted by a team of 70 young adult volunteers, an army of knights, numerous CWL members and a committed core from Regina Catholic School Division organized the two-day rally. More than one hundred high school boys and girls were greeted on the first day with upbeat praise music performed by the Rally Band, a group of young musicians who come together and lead worship for the rally. The band provided all the music ministry for the weekend, including breaks between sessions.
Saturday was the busiest day. After introductions, the Rally theme “Where Do I Fit?” was presented along with...
“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God” (Lk 1:30)
Dear young people,
World Youth Day 2018 represents another step in preparation for the international WYD due to take place in Panama in January 2019. This new stage of our pilgrimage falls in the same year that the Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will meet on the theme: Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. This is a happy coincidence. The focus, prayer and reflection of the Church will turn to you young people, with the desire to receive and, above all, to embrace the precious gift that you are to God, to the Church and to the world.
As you already know, we have chosen to be accompanied on this journey by the example and intercession of Mary, the young woman of Nazareth whom God chose as the Mother of his Son. She walks with us towards the Synod and towards the WYD in Panama. If last year we were guided by the words of her canticle of praise – “The Almighty has...
“It looks like Fred Flintstone's house! This was the comment heard when we (15 Canadians) arrived for the blessing of the first Super adobe house built after the earthquake. Thanks to friends, and the generous contribution from the Archdiocese of Regina, a family of five were about to move from a pile of rubble that once was their home to this beautiful solid new structure. The Madrinas (godmother's of the house) arrived in procession with flowers, wreaths, and carrying the cross. The new owners met them and blessed the cross with flower petals and incense. All of this was placed on an alter, from which the corners of the house were blessed and then, a rosary, litany and various other prayers were recited by the crowd.
There were many moving moments in the afternoon. When the mother of the architect and the grandmother of the house met and hugged there was an audible sigh went through the people. The architect's mother turned to the crowd and said “She has asked me...
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 student...
To say The King Children’s Home, Belize had a huge impact on my life is an understatement. It was life changing. Much like our daily lives, God’s plan for this mission trip was not the same as ours, and it certainly was not the experience I expected to have. When we arrived, the projects we anticipated doing, were not ready to be started. So we spent our 7 days being very present with the children and young adults. Spending two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon with the younger children and two hours with the teens, which was soon known as “Teen Club”. I never would have imagined the impact these young adults would have had on my life.
I had spent the last couple years in my life with a void in my heart. A void that seemed like no one nor any thing could fill it. But although the teen club had a rocky start, the time spent with them showed me a community of love, God’s love, and self-love. The friendships I made at King Children’s...
God is present in every moment of our lives; that was one of the messages heard by about 45 people working in youth ministry across Western Canada, gathered at the Double Tree Hotel here. Michelle Braden, Regina Archdiocese Youth Coordinator, identified the occasion as their annual gathering to hear inspirational speakers, discuss the business side of their organization, elect a new executive, and socialize. The election of new executive for the year was a scheduled part of their agenda.

He is doing his intern year at Regina’s Resurrection Parish where he is involved in all aspects of this large and busy parish. As keynote speaker his message was of recognizing God’s presence in our lives, especially in times of suffering. He described how, “If you want to see...
