LAUNCH – Basic Missionary Training

Mon, 10/28/2019 - 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, 10/28/2019 - 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

Parish Mission: “That One Thing”

Thu, 10/24/2019 - 19:00

“THAT ONE THING” – Parish Mission at St. Anne, Saskatoon – Mike Gormley will be visiting Saint Anne’s Catholic Church in Saskatoon all the way from Houston, Texas, to deliver a parish mission on Oct. 22, 23, and 24, starting at 7:00 p.m. each evening.

Michael Gormley is the producer and cohost of Catholic podcasts “Catching Foxes” and “Every Knee Shall Bow”. He holds a Master of Arts in Theology and Christian Ministry from Franciscan University of Steubenville. He currently serves as the Coordinator of Evangelization at St. Anthony of Padua Parish, a Catholic megachurch in Texas.

Talk One will bring us into confrontation with false images of God the Father, in particular, that thing we call “Catholic guilt.” Rooted and grounded in the endless mercy of God from the first talk, the second talk will lead us into repentance by asking one question: What is that one thing that is keeping you from a better relationship with God. The final talk hones in on two things: how to stay free of that one thing, and how to take the faith to the next level.

For more information on the parish mission visit saintannes.ca/mission.
