LAUNCH – Basic Missionary Training

Mon, 11/04/2019 - 19:00

LAUNCH – Basic Missionary Training

When: Monday evenings beginning Sept. 23 and ending Nov. 18 (No sessions on Thanksgiving or Remembrance Day)

Where: Catholic Pastoral Centre, Library, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon

Who: All the baptized, called to share their faith with others

Cost: $20

Register: Call Marilyn Jackson at 306-659-5836 or email mjackson@rcdos.ca

Deadline: Registration deadline is Sept. 16.

LAUNCH is a journey developed by Catholic Christian Outreach to gain attitudes, skills and knowledge over 7 weeks, that will help launch or sharpen our evangelization efforts. This training is open to everyone!

FOCUS:

  • The Church’s teaching about our calling and identity as Catholic disciples of Christ
  • The art of Intentional Accompaniment
  • How to use the Ultimate Relationship (a tool for sharing Jesus) to proclaim the Gospel
  • Learning to write and use our own story as an evangelization tool
  • Learning to identify thresholds
  • Creating a culture of sharing faith

HIGHLIGHTS:

Launch provides very practical evangelization tools and a safe environment in which to practice newly acquired skills.

Launch includes an ongoing follow-up plan, encouraging the larger group to form smaller core mission communities who will meet regularly to pray and support each other.

Launch will be presented by CCO Parish Missionary, Christy Dupuis.

While attending university, Christy Dupuis had a powerful encounter with Jesus and fell in love with her Catholic faith. After completing a B.A. in English, she went on to serve as a lay missionary with Catholic Christian Outreach. While serving as a missionary, Christy began speaking at conferences and retreats and leading workshops on a variety of topics. Her passion for evangelization and communicating the Gospel continues to drive her service to the Church.

Christy is married to Daniel and is the mother of four young children who challenge and inspire her. Believing that the parish is instrumental in evangelization efforts, Christy serves as a member of the pastoral team at her local parish, Immaculate Heart of Mary in Martensville, SK, where she co-labours with her pastor and others to form disciples and provide opportunities for all to encounter Jesus. Christy has also rejoined CCO to serve, once again, as a lay missionary: this time, as a Parish Missionary and consultant, helping to equip and train leaders to be evangelists in their parish communities.

Awake: what do Catholics believe?

Mon, 11/04/2019 - 19:00

AWAKE: Our journey of faith always begins with questions. What do Catholics really believe? How do we understand…

 What is grace?

 What exactly is purgatory?

 What about church authority and what is the infallibility of the pope?

 How do I live my sexuality as a Catholic?

 How can I live my faith in my marriage? Is divorce allowed in the Catholic Church?

 Where does Mary and the saints come into our faith life?

 What about Catholic Practices?

 What are the gifts of the Holy Spirit?

 Who is the Body of Christ?

 Can I figure out Catholic doctrine?

Join us for five Mondays for an in-depth discussion on the topics listed – and more – and we’d love to hear your questions during these sessions. This program will be facilitated and taught by Arch McKay who also presents the Holy Spirit Parish RCIA program.

The meetings foster reflection, prayer, and honest sharing in a setting of hospitality and acceptance.

The process is simple and inviting. The group will meet Oct. 21, Oct. 28, Nov. 4, Nov. 18 and Nov. 25 — all beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Holy Spirit Parish, 114 Kingsmere Place, Saskatoon.

Please register by calling or emailing Sharon at (306) 374-1425 or sharon@holyspiritsaskatoon.ca

Contemplative Mass

Fri, 11/01/2019 - 19:00

Contemplative Mass led by Fr. Kevin McGee, will be celebrated at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 at St. Augustine Church, 602 Boychuk Dr.  Saskatoon.

The rhythm of the Contemplative Mass is a gentle, steady flow, marked by 20 minutes of silence after communion. It is designated to allow space for reflection and recognition of the intimate presence of Christ who comes to us through scripture and the Eucharist. Silence within this form of worship can feel uncomfortable or awkward, especially when experienced for the first time. We encourage you to relax and rest in the abiding presence of God.
