What's New

R.A.N.T.

Last updated on December 5, 2015

I don't think people who know me would say that I am prone to rants. Overall I don't think they're particularly helpful and unless you are Rick Mercer, I think people just tune you out anyways. But I've felt one coming on for some time now that I just need to get off my chest. So I've laid a few ground rules for myself before I let loose. My rant needs to be:

R - Respectful (No names, no one attacked)
A - Accountable (I have thought thru what I say and I stand by it)
N – Not allow myself to go on and on and on. (Cause it's tempting!)
T – True (These are not observances based on rumours but on first hand lived experience)

So with that in mind, here goes...

I. AM. TIRED. Not physically tired. My heart is tired. I am TIRED of seeing so many young people who are without hope. I am TIRED of adults (usually well-meaning) who tip toe around major issues because they don't want to appear "preachy". Well...if you consider it "preachy" to share...

A Pledge to Vote challenge between Campion and Luther University of Regina Federated Colleges appears to have been a success. 

The challenge between the two faith based colleges was issued September 29 by the two College Presidents, Dr. John Meehan S.J. of Campion and Dr. Bryan Hillis of Luther. The winner would receive a pizza party paid for by the loser. 

The voting was close with Campion counting 83 students who voted and Luther 81. The numbers claiming University of Regina affiliation was 107 for a combined total of 270.However, when the student population in each college was takeninto consideration Luther had 16.9 % of its student body cast a vote and Campion had 13% so Luther was declared the winner. A pizza party was held in the Luther student lounge October 20 but in the spirit of co-operation, Hillis said Luther would split the cost of the pizza with Campion. The challenge included a stipulation that the losing college president would be required to wear the...

Students at both Campion College and Luther College rallied behind their College presidents in the Pledge to Vote challenge, which was first announced at the end of September. A total of 270 students on the university campus made a pledge to vote in the 2015 federal election on October 19. Of those, 83 indicated an affiliation with Campion College, and 81 indicated and affiliation with Luther College. The overall results were tabulated based on the proportion of students at each College, giving Luther College the lead in the challenge at 16.9% of its student population, with Campion following at 13.0% of its student population pledging to vote.

 

“The numbers were very close throughout the challenge. We congratulate Luther College on their strong performance in the last week, but are even more encouraged by the overall student engagement in the pre-election activities on campus. The purpose was to encourage participation and I feel that the Pledge to Vote challenge...

Miracles Happen at Camp

Last updated on September 8, 2015

Miracles Happen at Camp!

Having been home from camp for 2 weeks now, I am only just starting to process all the ways in which God worked in the hearts and minds of the young people at the Archdiocesan Leadership Camp! I recognize what a blessed position I am in! So many folks have lost hope and are firmly attached to the belief that our young people have no interest in matters of faith. I get to witness everyday all the ways in which that statement is categorically UNTRUE! While many have lost their way (as have many much older than them have!) many of them are recognizing their need for something different than what the world has to offer and are indeed leading the way! This is just a sampling of what I saw:

- Thirty five young adults who take UNPAID holidays from their jobs to come fill an UNPAID leadership role for 10 days at camp.

- Young people enthusiastically and comfortably inviting their “unchurched” friends to join us. Then “working with them” ahead...

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...
