Season of Creation webinar: “Listening to the Land”

Thu, 09/16/2021 - 15:00
Listening to the Land: A conversation on the stewardship of creation

A Season of Creation webinar panel presentation will be held at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16 entitled “Listening to the Land: A conversation on the stewardship of creation.”

Three panellists will reflect on what listening to the land means from their perspective, tradition, and experience; what they hear the land saying and how we might respond.

  • Bishop Chris Harper is from Onion Lake Cree Nation and served in ministry in the Anglican dioceses of Saskatchewan, Algoma, and Toronto before being elected bishop of Saskatoon in 2018
  • Elder May Desnomie, Regina Catholic School Board, was born and raised on Wapaskokimaw in northern Saskatchewan, also known as Sandy Bay First Nation
  • Reverend Mitchell Anderson, minister at St. Paul’s United Church in Saskatoon, is dënesułiné and a member of the English River Dene Nation

Registration required. Free registration at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUlcuuopjosGtQNGqLMEtMf77EeV7MZFc6F

For further information, contact Cheryl Toth, stewardship@sasktel.net

The Season of Creation is observed in many Christian churches from September 1 to October 4 each year. Since 1989, September 1 has been a Day of Prayer for Creation. October 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, who is for many a patron saint of environmental concern and activism. More information on the Season of Creation and prayer resources are available at seasonofcreation.org.

This webinar is planned in the spirit of the LAURC Covenant by the Ecumenical Stewardship Committee of the Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle, the Saskatchewan Synod of the ELCIC, and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina

Fall Congress Series: RCIA Leader and Parish Training

Thu, 09/16/2021 - 10:00

“Built on the Rock” – RCIA Leader & Parish Training is the first session of a diocesan FALL CONGRESS SERIES. It provides training related to the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process in parishes.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

The RCIA “Built on the Rock” sessions will be held Wednesday, Sept 15 (7-9 p.m.) and Thursday, Sept. 16 (10 am-3pm) at the Cathedral of the Holy Family, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon (lunch provided Sept. 16)

Cost: $20 for a single day, $30 for both days. Register online at: https://form.jotform.com/212345991923057

If you have an RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) team in your parish, this training is an excellent opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the RCIA process and to be supported in transforming the way we make disciples. If your parish does not currently have a team ready to go to welcome seekers, this training will help you to get started and be ready!

It’s important for all parishes to be represented at these sessions so that you are ready to respond when the Holy Spirit moves in the hearts of people who are searching for meaning in their lives.

Faith formation is not a classroom activity. While it is important to have “lessons”, the relationship experience is what leads people into a deepening intimacy with the Lord. “Communicating the living mystery of God” can and should involve the entire parish. Even if you do not have inquirers at this time – get ready!

Please call Marilyn Jackson at (306) 659-5836 if you have questions or e-mail programs@rcdos.ca

Rosary Novena to pray for Canadian voters during federal election campaign

Wed, 09/15/2021 - 18:00
Federal Election Rosary Novena

The national organization Catholic Conscience has launched a rosary novena for the people of Canada happening during the federal election campaign (running from Aug. 25 to Sept. 20, 2021)  to pray for Canadian voters and entrust them to the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph.

Find more information about the Catholic Conscience prayer event at:  www.novenaforcanadians.eventbrite.ca/

As Catholic Canadians, we are called to “seek the welfare of the city,” in the words of the Book of Jeremiah. We are, after all, citizens of two nations: this earthly country Canada, this place and people we all love, and the heavenly Kingdom of God. Let’s come together to praise the Lord of both these nations and to call on the intercession of the heavenly Kingdom for the needs of our earthly nation.

Join Canadians from coast to coast as we gather for a nine-day rosary novena to pray for the people of Canada, as Canadians each discern their own consciences in preparation to vote for our next government during the 2021 federal election. Voting determines the future of our country, by determining who we entrust with the common good of all Canadians. During this rosary novena, we will pray that all Canadians vote with love of neighbour at heart; with the core principles of Catholic social teaching in mind, including the common good, life and dignity of the human person, community, participation, rights and responsibilities, the preferential option for the poor, subsidiarity, solidarity, care for God’s creation, the dignity of work, and more; and that the Holy Spirit inspire all those running to lead their communities and serve as MPs, that they may live a superhuman oblation of self out of love for their constituents and the future of our country.

NOVENA SCHEDULE

1. Wednesday, August 25 at 6 pm SK time Pray with us for the people of the North.

2. Sunday, August 29 at 8 am SK time: Pray with us for the people of British Columbia.

3. Wednesday, September 1 at 6 pm SK time: Pray with us for the people of Alberta.

4. Saturday, September 4 at 8 am SK time: Pray with us for the people of Saskatchewan.

5. Wednesday, September 8 at 6 pm SK time: : Pray with us for the people of Manitoba.

6. Sunday, September 12 at 8 am SK time: Pray with us for the people of Ontario.

7. Wednesday, September 15 at 6 pm SK time: Pray with us for the people of Quebec.

8. Saturday, September 18 at 8 am SK time: : Pray with us for the people of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

9. Monday, September 20 at 7 am SK time: (Election Day): Entrust the voters of Canada to Mary, Seat of Wisdom & Queen of Heaven, and St. Joseph, Patron of Canada.

Part of our commission as disciples of Christ is to love and serve our neighbours, through concrete acts of service—including prayer. Together, let’s pray for the people of Canada during this critical moment for all of us, and entrust our fellow Canadians to Mary, the Seat of Wisdom & Queen of Heaven, and Saint Joseph, the Patron of Canada.

WEBINAR – Federal Election 2021: Catholics & Canadian Politics

Wed, 09/15/2021 - 17:00
A free Catholic Action Webinar during the 2021 federal election campaign will be held online on Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 5 p.m. (SK time)

As part of a mission to assist Catholics to engage in the political process, the national organization Catholic Conscience presents a free webinar featuring John Milloy (former Ontario cabinet minister and prime ministerial advisor). In his new book, Politics and Faith in a Polarized World: A Challenge for Catholics.

John Milloy brings to bear the full weight of his experience and analysis to one of the most crucial questions for Catholics in Canada today: how do we effectively bring a Catholic social vision into our political engagement—a crucial core of our call to public witness—in a highly-secularized political environment where Catholic perspectives are often denied a place in the public conversation, or, at worst, are treated with outright hostility?

Milloy offers ideas for the way forward that will both inspire and challenge Catholics to think differently about how we can bring Pope Francis’ idea of political love to life in Canada today as our country’s single largest religious voting demographic.

As Catholic Canadians, we are called to “seek the welfare of the city,” in the words of the Book of Jeremiah. We are, after all, citizens of two nations: this earthly country Canada, this place and people we all love, and the heavenly Kingdom of God. Let’s come together to praise the Lord of both these nations and to call on the intercession of the heavenly Kingdom for the needs of our earthly nation.

Join Canadians from coast to coast as we gather for a nine-day rosary novena to pray for the people of Canada, as Canadians each discern their own consciences in preparation to vote for our next government during the 2021 federal election. Voting determines the future of our country, by determining who we entrust with the common good of all Canadians. During this rosary novena, we will pray that all Canadians vote with love of neighbour at heart; with the core principles of Catholic social teaching in mind, including the common good, life and dignity of the human person, community, participation, rights and responsibilities, the preferential option for the poor, subsidiarity, solidarity, care for God’s creation, the dignity of work, and more; and that the Holy Spirit inspire all those running to lead their communities and serve as MPs, that they may live a superhuman oblation of self out of love for their constituents and the future of our country.
