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...

Christmas Hampers Decorated

Last updated on December 17, 2014

St. Francis School Grades five and six teacher Kelly Walby was looking for an Advent project for her class in December 2013. She contacted the Regina Food Bank and asked if there was anything her class could do in an artistic vein that would help the Food Bank. “He told me, ‘well we have these ugly brown boxes we use to pack our Christmas Hampers could you do anything with that’, could we, I replied!”

So began a project that took on a life of its own. From 30 boxes from students in one classroom in December 2013 it has expanded to more than 1,000 boxes from nine schools in the Regina Roman Catholic School Division and two in Regina public School Division. Walby said 30 individual families also became involved. “I had a family night December 3 and more than 100 people showed up just from St. Francis and the families asked to do this again next year.”

The Food Bank supplied the boxes and all students in the nine elementary schools took part. Students were given some...

CFI Youth Rally Rosary... Flies

Last updated on February 25, 2015


They floated a Rosary in the sky. The Hail Mary’s were green, the Our Fathers. Black and the silver cross at the bottom flashed occasionally as the sun glinted off it in a clear blue sky.  Thanks to an extremely rare windless prairie day it went straight up from the O’Neil High School football field for several hundred feet before very slowing drifting off to the east.

It was one of the highlights of a March 31day of investigating the Roman Catholic Faith for 70 Grade nine and 12s and about 30 Archdiocesan youth leaders who with a few adult chaperones came from all over the Regina Archdiocese to participate in day filled with activities, talks and music while learning more about their faith.

Archdiocesan Youth Coordinator Michelle Braden said she hoped it would be for them a day of discovery. “I expect them to hopefully have their hearts opened to their journey with God and for those already on that path to have their...

They finally arrived home, August 26, about five hours late, tired but happy after the “experience of a lifetime,” at World Youth Day events in Madrid, Spain and visiting ancient and holy sites in Italy.
Melissa Strachan, 21, and Chelsea Dumontier, 18, were two of 41 Regina Archdiocesan youth pilgrims. They were accompanied by Archdiocesan Youth Coordinator Michelle Braden, Archbishop Daniel Bohan and Reverend Danilo Rafael. 
The trip was 24 days. It included a week in Rome with a visit to Assisi; a week in Granada, Spain hosted with local families; a week in Madrid with Word Youth Day events and the remaining days at the El Poblado del Amanacer retreat centre in a nature preserve near Spain’s Mediterranean Coast. 
Braden said the trip was challenging but she recognized lots of growth in herself and among the other pilgrims. Dumontier and Strachan said they learned more about themselves and their faith had been strengthened.
The entire trip was a highlight for...
