Prayer for Persecuted Christians

Thu, 03/07/2019 - 19:00
Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Prayer Evening will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 7 at Holy Spirit Parish, 114 Kingsmere Place, Saskatoon. In every age, Christians have suffered for their faith, from the Roman Coliseum to the recent beheadings perpetrated by ISIS. Brave men and women, embracing the cross of Jesus, have gone to their death rather than deny their faith. Today, the witness of martyrs continues in an especially intense way in the Middle East, where priests are murdered for offering Mass and families are driven from their homes for displaying a cross. Featuring the newly commissioned icon of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, we will gather as a church community to render spiritual aid to those who suffer for their faith. Please join the Knights and families in this special evening of prayer.

Movie screening and discussion: "Sexual Revolution: 50 years since Humanae Vitae"

Sat, 03/02/2019 - 13:00
Movie screening and discussion - The diocesan Office of Justice and Peace is sponsoring a movie screening and discussion 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 2 at St Philippe Néri Parish in Vonda, SK. (content suitable for ages 14 years and up.)                   ABOUT THE FILM:  "Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae" is a beautifully-made documentary that examines the parallel developments of the Pill and modern Natural Family Planning (NFP) by telling the little-known story of the founding doctors, respectively, Dr. Gregory Pincus and Drs. John and Evelyn Billings. The centerpiece of the film is the dramatic life story of Alana Newman, a talented recording artist. Born through donor conception (via an anonymous sperm donor), Alana's youth is filled with natural curiosity about her biological father. As she gets older, however, this curiosity develops into a sense of abandonment and self-doubt. Still, a spark of that curiosity inspires her on to an arduous search for truth, beauty, and goodness—and her father. Eventually, Alana discovers the treasures of Theology of the Body, Humanae Vitae, and all the riches of the Catholic Church, and comes to realize that she, in fact, may never have been fatherless. "Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae" has been endorsed by The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.                   Following the film there will be a panel discussion, with local people speaking to their experience of NFP.                   If other parishes and groups are interested in hosting a similar evening to screen this film, please contact Justice and Peace Coordinator Myron Rogal at the Catholic Pastoral Centre, 306-659-5841 or mrogal@rcdos.ca
