Located about 5.2 km north of Carmel, SK (west of Humboldt).

HISTORY:

Mount Carmel, named after the famous Mount Carmel in Israel, is the highest spot in the district (1,987 feet above sea level).    .

In 1902, Fr. Bruno Doerfler, OSB, and his exploration team stopped at the hill and replaced a cross that had been on top of the hill. Fr. Bruno conceived the idea of dedicating the mount to Mary, but it was Abbot Michael Ott, OSB, who solemnly blessed the mount on Sept. 10, 1922 with 3,500 people in attendance. He announced that an annual pilgrimage would be held the Sunday following July 16, the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. He also dedicated the entire abbacy area to the Blessed Virgin.

According to tradition the hill was a sacred place for the natives of the area.  The Carlton Trail going from Winnipeg to Edmonton split into two trails at that spot, so that a trail passed by on either side of the mount.

The mount was donated to St. Peter’s Abbey by area farmer John Bunko in 1921 and 15 acres of land was obtained for parking.

In 1928 an Italian-made white carrara marble statue of Mary was placed on top of the hill. In 1938, stonemason Antonio Molaro constructed the chapel and altar from local stone. The Stations of the Cross were erected July 16, 1939. The bell beside the chapel was donated in 1967 by Immaculate Conception Parish. In 1937 and 1950 lightning struck the statue’s pedestal.

Fr. Patrick Peyton launched his family rosary crusade at Mount Carmel on Sept. 26, 1948, with a crowd of 12,000 present. (A Journey of Faith, 310)

Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.”

Sanctum Survivor – 36-Hour Homelessness Challenge

Thu, 05/28/2020 - 00:00

Sanctum Care Group is planning a city-wide fundraiser to occur on May 28 & 29, 2020. Ten community leaders — including Bishop Mark Hagemoen — will attempt to survive as if homeless for 36 hours on the streets of Saskatoon.

In teams of two, participants will be given tasks to complete. Each task will aim to demonstrate certain challenges that society is offers unaware of, but which are an everyday reality for those who are homeless with HIV. Participants will we are donated clothes and shoes and will not be allowed any personal belongings other than a phone (to update the public on their journey).

Sanctum Care Group acknowledges that the 36-hour homelessness experience by no means accurately depicts the numerous barriers and complex issues faced by persons who survive daily in poverty and homelessness; however, Sanctum Care Group believes that drawing awareness to some of the many challenges will be a catalyst for real and lasting change.

Sanctum Survivor is an event to raise funds and awareness for Sanctum, Saskatchewan’s first HIV Hospice and Transitional Care Home and Sanctum 1.5, which will be Canada’s first HIV and high risk Prenatal Home.

Individuals who access services at Sanctum are most often homeless, and have fallen through the cracks of the traditional health care system. The event itself is both powerful and unprecedented, as it attempts to shed light on the intense hardship faced by people who experience poverty, homelessness and chronic illness in Saskatoon.
