Overview:

Forty years ago, many lay people began to study theology beyond the basic catechesis of their youth. Initially there was a lot of enthusiasm among laity and clergy alike, and a wonderful blossoming took place. Thousands of lay women and men became theologically and pastorally literate in a deeper way and began to do ministry within their parishes and dioceses. This is still happening, but in a situation where the task has changed, and new tensions have arisen. Yet the hope remains the same. This day will be a look at what the theological formation of laity involves today in terms of tasks, tension and hope.

Speaker:

Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI, is a Catholic priest and theologian, born and raised in Saskatchewan, who was a long-time popular presenter for the Lay Formation Program in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon — a program that this year has been re-named the Adult Faith Enrichment Program.

Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Fr. Rolheiser is a speaker, workshop leader, columnist, and writer on contemporary spirituality. He was born in Macklin, SK in 1947, one of the older children in a large family. Following his school years, he entered the noviciate of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate and professed his First Vows in September 1966, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1972. During and after his own studies, he taught theology and philosophy at Newman Theological College in Edmonton, AB.

Journaling and Writing as Spiritual Practice – opening session of series

Wed, 10/09/2019 - 10:00

A four-part series at Queen’s House in Saskatoon with Shelly Manley-Tannis on Tuesday evenings, Oct. 8, 15, 22, 29, and repeated Wednesday mornings, Oct. 9, 16, 23, 30.

Cost: $120 / 4 sessions. A minimum of 10 participants is required to offer these programs – registration deadline is Oct. 1. Please bring your own journal – all other supplies are provided. Call (306) 242-1916 for information and registration.

 

Journaling & Writing As Spiritual Practice (from brochure)

In this four-week series we will begin by exploring our experiences of writing and journal-keeping as spiritual practice. We will reflect on how the many ways of journaling can be life-giving and consider how the habits we develop can help us connect with Spirit and with our selves. We will also put some of our discussions into practice with a different writing/ creative exercise each week, followed by a short time of sharing something from our work or experience, as participants choose. During each session we will make space to allow for silence and contemplative time in ways that would be inclusive to seekers and followers of many paths. These four weeks are for anyone of any tradition interested in journaling and other forms of writing, from beginners to published authors.

Shelly Manley-Tannis, MA, MDiv, Jubilee Associate: “I enjoy working with seekers – one on one and in small groups. I love story-telling, writing, music, collage, up- cycling, reading, all things Celtic. My training in spiritual direction began in 2004 with the Prairie Jubilee Program, and I have led many retreats and workshops: guided, silent retreats, working with the Enneagram, Spirituality and Joy, Self-Care, and Journeying through Grief. I was ordained in the United Church of Canada in 2001 and continue in part-time ministry, currently with Delisle-Vanscoy United Church. My roots are in the Protestant Christian Tradition. I deeply respect other paths and desire to work toward and build inter-faith relationships. I have continued my own education through work with Expressive Arts Therapy (Winnipeg Holistic Expressive Arts Therapy: WHEAT), the Center for Courage and Renewal, and Enneagram and Archetype work. In my own practice, creativity through art, music and writing has played a central role in my journey and in my accompanying others in their journeys. There are so many ways to experience joy and beauty in this world, and I feel called to help others see it.”

National Catholic Health Care Week

Sun, 10/06/2019 - 00:00
National Catholic Health Care Week will be celebrated in Canada from Sunday, October 6 to Saturday, October 12.

Awaken: revealing the courageous gift of Catholic health care is a joyful celebration and a mindful call to action. We celebrate the determined, audacious women of faith who started a revolution in Canada before Canada was even a country. They laid the groundwork for what we now know as health, education and social services. Today, we continue to serve with the same core of deep-hearted desire. The courageous gift we offer—and the one we receive—is the ability to be part of one another’s humanity. Our call to action is to give voice to Catholic health care, cultivating a groundswell of stories and deepening realization of the impact of our work in Canadian society

Nationally, Catholic health care serves over 5 million Canadians each year and employs over 88,000 people. Our footprint is big. Our hearts are even bigger. And our belief that we are part of each other’s journey, there to support and transform one another, is the foundation it’s all built on.
