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...

MyGen "Making a Mess"

Last updated on March 26, 2015

The My Generation  Archdiocesan 2015 Youth rally held here March 21-22 attracted 155 Grades eight to 12 youth who spent two days listening to motivational speakers, attending liturgies, performing community services and generally just having fun. Most attendees seem to be newcomers. “I don’t think I recognized 90% of the kids this year,” said Archdiocesan Youth Coordinator Michelle Braden.

The Rally Band, put together specifically for the rally, kept the energy going between sessions with upbeat music that encouraged participation.

The theme this year, Make a Mess, came from Pope Francis’ challenge to youth attending 2014World Youth Day in Brazil. Attendees to the MyGen Rally were greeted with a life size cutout of Pope Francis when they entered O’Neil High School where most of the activities took place. Speakers emphasized the theme and it was carried over into some of the community service projects that are a feature of the annual gathering. This year groups went to...

Archbishop and CCO: Youth In The Church

Last updated on January 28, 2015

Sitting comfortably on an upholstered rocking chair and looking much like a grandfather speaking to his grandchildren, Regina Archbishop Daniel Bohan told a group of young adults they have an important role to play in the life of the Church. The informal gathering of Catholic Christian Outreach (CC) a university centred youth group invited the Archbishop to speak on a subject of his choice and to meet with local participants in CCO. The 25 sat in chairs, love seats, chesterfields and on the floor of the Aquinas Room used by the parish’s youth ministry. Bohan, frequently quoting Pope Francis and Evangelii Gaudium (Joy of the Gospel), said young people like all baptized Catholics are called to be evangelists but not evangelists going door to door like Jehovah Witness. “Let people see the joy that is in our life because of our faith.” The Regina Archbishop is a big fan of Pope Francis. He told the group he was in Rome November 2014 to meet with a seminarian studying there and while...
