This is a great training for interested parishioners, parents, family members, or anyone who works with children or youth, including teachers, youth ministers, sacramental preparation leaders and home schoolers. If you register for the course before Nov. 1, 2019, your books are free: an $80 value. For more information, contact Linda Funk at  lfunk@shaw.ca  for more information. Childcare is available at an additional cost.

Those who prefer online payment, do so through the CGSAC website at http://www.cgsac.ca/home.html

Click here for more information: Brochure PDF

“I have seen the children blossom and their eyes light up, a deep joy and great understanding grow as they work with materials and are at peace in the Atrium, the space where Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) takes place. I have also had lovely moments with children preparing for their sacraments with the CGS materials. I have become a better mother and educator thanks to this method, and my faith continues to grow with my experiences in CGS. I hope you all will be touched by the grace, beauty and faith-filled experience Catechesis of the Good Shepherd brings.” – Lisette Fontaine

* REIGN OF CHRIST THE KING APOSTOLATE –

On January 25, 2018, on the blessed Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, the Reign of Christ the King Apostolate was established by Fr. Richmond Diala at St. Paul’s Co-Cathedral.  Since August 2019, Fr. Paul Oshin has led the group.

As Christ’s faithful, the Reign of Christ the King Apostolate responds to the New Evangelization in three ways:

1)  Prayer

2)  Practice of our faith

3)  Proclamation of the faith according to the teachings of the Catholic Church

Reign of Christ the King Apostolate gathers for prayer every Thursday night at 9:00 pm at St. Paul’s Co-Cathedral, 720 Spadina Cres. East, Saskatoon.  Are you available to respond to Jesus’ invitation?  Come join us! May the Reign of Christ in our hearts make us good ambassadors for Christ.  Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like yours.
