It Takes Two!

Last updated on June 9, 2016

“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...

Youth Leadership Graduation

Last updated on May 16, 2016

”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...

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...

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...
