Esterhazy Deanery Celebrates Family Day

Last updated on June 25, 2015

What began as a simple idea by Very Rev. Valentine Amobi, Esterhazy Dean, blossomed into an event attended by over 250 parishioners from the Esterhazy Deanery.  An Annual Appeal grant was applied for and received to assist with the costs of the event. 

On a Sunday day at Camp O’Neill, the afternoon started with an invigorating mass concelebrated by Rev. Valentine and Rev. Rene Mangahas.  The Grayson choir filled the hall with music that left you wanting more.  Rev. Rene’s homily had the congregation stomping in the pews and responding with spontaneous “Amens”.  Young and old alike filed out of the hall with smiles on their faces and music in their souls. 

More music awaited the crowd in the picnic area.  Rev. Joseph Kuruvilla, Rev. Thomas Mutavanattu, and Father Bruno Moduthagam Remigius joined the crowd for an afternoon of games, tours of Camp O’Neill, snacks and entertainment.  The day concluded with a family picnic catered by Esterhazy Catering.  No one was...

On The Road Again

Last updated on May 27, 2015

Open any newspaper today and you’re likely to see at least a couple stories about local teens getting into some kind of trouble—accidents caused by joy-riding, arson fires, stolen vehicles …  It can make you think that’s all that’s happening with today’s youth.  So what a breath of fresh air it is to hear about other young people today who are making a huge difference not only in their own lives and the lives of their neighbors, but also in the lives of people half way around the world.  Last August, fifty youth and young adults from the Archdiocese of Regina Leadership Teams travelled to the Phillipines on a mission trip to build homes.  While there, they visited a couple of local orphanages and came away touched and wanting to help.  So this year, they, along with other members of the Leadership Teams, decided to send a large portion of the funds raised from their annual Variety Night back to these orphanages, with the rest going to a local soup kitchen. 

And what a...

Youth Liturgy Graduation Mass

Last updated on May 19, 2015

The Youth Liturgy Program in Regina Catholic schools is 12-years old and has grown to the point that it has had to limit the number of students who take part. “This year we had 50 Grade six students from 10 schools,” said Miles Meyers Religious Education Coordinator for the Regina Roman Catholic School Division. “We had to limit the numbers because the class was getting too big.”

The Graduation Mass held May 14, at Holy Trinity Church was celebrated by Reverend Ron Andree with members of the graduating class providing the music and scriptural readings. Andree, with Meyers and Judy Zolc, Regina Archdiocesan Lay Ministry Program Coordinator share teaching responsibilities for the program. “There are five sessions during the year where we take them out of regular classes for this program,” said Meyers. Most are half day sessions but students spend a full day for their final class which includes the graduation mass.

The Youth Liturgy Program teaches students about the...

The High Schools for Hope Campaign expects to raise about $40,000.00 before the end of the school year, according to Pat Roth, Chaplain at Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School. Roth spoke with the PM prior to the fund raising band concert held at the school March 26. “We expect raise about $3,000.00 tonight. We have more silent auction donations than ever before and we’ve had much more publicity about the event so expect more people.”

Students from Regina’s four Catholic high schools approached their chaplains asking what they could do to help the children of Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the country. High Schools for Hope was formed and has since been joined by several Catholic elementary schools. The schools contacted Chalice, a Catholic charity based in Nova Scotia, and through them 20 Haitian children were adopted. The schools were told they needed $10,000.00 to support the 20 children. The first year of the campaign $30,000.00 was collected which...
