Best Summer Ever – Community Celebration: Host Family Saskatchewan invites the community to a family-friendly, accessible event Saturday, Aug. 28 at Alexander MacGillivary Younge Park in the Stonebridge neighbourhood of Saskatoon, which will begin at 3:00 pm with games, face-painting, a bouncy castle and more! Events will continue through the evening and include local food vendors and live music provided by Eddie Robertson Electric Blues. To top off the evening, the Hilltops Cheer Squad will teach a wheel-chair friendly cheer before the 8:00 pm Canadian premiere screening of the film “Best Summer Ever” (SXSW 2021). The list of producers for the movie includes Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jaimie Lee Curtis. “Best Summer Ever” celebrates inclusivity and the gifts of others. This celebration overflows into the production of the movie as half the cast and crew are part of the disabled community. (NOTE: *Parental Guidance is advised of the Best Summer Ever. This movie is aimed towards teenaged children.)   This event is put on by Host Family Saskatchewan, a team and extension of Christian Horizons. Host Family Saskatchewan is a model of inclusive living that creates long-term, family-like relationships between a person who experiences disability and others who want to live a life of inclusivity. Host Families are any person or family who would like to welcome another person into their life and home. The Host Family Saskatchewan team supplies support and respite opportunities to each family: these supports are provided through Christian Horizons.

Rosary Novena to pray for Canadian voters during federal election campaign

Wed, 08/25/2021 - 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.

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.

“Communicating Like A Catholic” – online workshop

Wed, 07/21/2021 - 17:00

* Communicating Like a Catholic online workshop will be held Wednesday, July 21 at 5:00 p.m. (Saskatchewan time).

This is a critical topic for Catholics in public life today: living out the dignity of the human person in the ways we evangelize, advocate, and communicate with our fellow citizens in public discourse, on social media and elsewhere; and modelling Christ through love, joy, and hope amid a polarized public conversation too-often defined by hatred and dehumanization. This is especially critical when in conversation with those who disagree with us. This workshop is all about effective and, charitable communication through the lens of our Christian faith. This workshop aims to empower you as a Christian communicator no matter your vocation.

This discussion features two extraordinary Catholic leaders and communicators: Catholic author and speaker Leah Perrault; and, Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation producer and host, Deacon Pedro Guevara-Mann.

RSVP at www.communicatecatholic.eventbrite.ca  for webinar log-in details.
