“IT TAKES TWO: A Celebration of Dynamic Duos” was the theme of this year's Variety Night. Some members of the Youth and Young Adult Leadership teams, along with the group of World Youth Day pilgrims, came together this May to raise funds for the diocesan contingency that is traveling to Poland for WYD this year. They come from around the diocese, with some even preparing their act from afar and then just joining us the weekend of the show. The quality of the performances that these young people are able to bring to the stage, never ceases to amaze me.And while the show celebrated duos/duets of all kinds, it perhaps could have been more aptly named .... “It Takes SEVENTY TWO”, as this was the number of young people involved in the cast and crew.
The show featured music, dance, comedy and dramas that paid tribute to a diverse group of iconic duos such Donny and Marie, Statler and Waldorf, Lucy and Ethel, Laverne and Shirley, Beauty and the Beast and many more! The show ran for...
Everyone in Saskatchewan looks forward to summer especially young camping enthusiasts who get to spend a week or more at one of four summer camps within the Regina Archdiocese. The Archdiocese doesn’t own them but does provide support from the Annual Appeal. Each operates with a volunteer board of directors and all received funding and support from various councils of the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Women’s’ League.
Monahan, O’Neil, Kenosee (Kom ‘N See) and O’Neil are accepting registrations for youth camps held throughout the summer each camp is about a week long but campers can register for more than one week. Times, costs and other information can be obtained by visiting each camp’s web site. All speak about summer fun with various programs of swimming, boating, archery, canoeing, etc. and all speak about the Catholic experience including liturgies and a mass usually at the beginning or end of the week.
All offer core programs such as mentioned earlier but...
”It’s all about leadership,” said Regina Catholic School Division Director of Education Rob Currie when he addressed the most recent Youth Leadership Course graduates May 12 at Holy Trinity Church. He told graduates that they will become leaders in their schools and bring their faith to their schools.
This is the 15th year for the program that began to teach mostly Grade six students about liturgy and the Mass. “Six students are chosen from 10 schools and this year we had a full complement of 60 students,” said Miles Meyers, Religious Education Coordinator for the Regina Catholic School Division. “The program had been growing every year and last year we had to limit the number of students as the classes were getting too large,” said Meyers. The program is limited to Grade six students because the school then has them for two more years. However, graduates of the program use what they learned in the program when they move to high school and many work with their high school...

From Mess to Mercy Before we know it, the MY GEN YOUTH RALLY will be upon us again! (March 12-13,2016) Last year, young people from around the archdiocese came together to make a mess! The right kind of mess…. We came to clean up those messes in our lives which were destructive. We came to pray for those messes which were beyond our control. Inspired by Pope Francis’s charge to the young people at World Youth Day in Rio, to go home “and make a mess in the dioceses”, we were all called to look at those places in our churches, homes and schools in which the “status quo” needed to be challenged. We came together as a community and played ridiculous, messy games, enjoyed inspiring talks, prayed, laughed, sang, danced and served. Our communal prayer over the course of the weekend was “I will go….Send me!” This year we return again…. to laugh, to greet old friends, enjoy great music, games and food. We join together to get out into the...
