Join other young adults growing in faith
The Archdiocese of Regina Youth Ministry office is working to establish a “small group ministry” specifically for young adults, 10 - 15 people in a similar place in life seeking to grow in faith.
Small groups will meet weekly or bi-weekly (depending on the decision of the group) and will gather in people’s homes to build community, learn, pray and socialize.
Interested? Contact Michelle Braden at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 306 352 1651 ext. 223.

Lay Formation Program
Share the Joy of the Gospel!
I'd love to take the course, but I want to wait until: my kids are grown, I can slow down at work, I'm retired...
The sad truth is, nearly 75% of young people, even those raised in religious homes, will leave the Church by the time they are 25 - well before many of us retire! Some of the most common reasons given for leaving one's faith behind include; perceived conflicts between faith and science, Christians behaving badly, a lack of evidence for the existence of God and difficulties with some of the Church's teachings.
Our sons and daughters need mentors who are "well-trained and animated by a sincere faith whose life has been touched by the personal and merciful love of Jesus Christ" (Pope Francis).
We are currently accepting applications for our fall in-take. For more information or to register, please contact our Program Coordinator, Eric Gurash, at 306.325.1651 ext 211 or email him at email@example.com.

Dear brothers and sisters in the Muslim community of Saskatchewan,
January 30, 2017
On behalf of the Catholic community, we wish to express our deep sorrow on recent tragic events in Quebec City, and to offer our condolences and prayers for your suffering community at this time. Earlier today, His Holiness Pope Francis, expressed his own prayers for those who were killed and injured in Quebec, as well as their families, asking the Lord to bring them comfort and consolation in the ordeal.
We stand together with you and leaders of all faith communities in condemning violence, particularly violence in the name of God, whose name is peace. Violence profanes the name of God. Such inconceivable violence violates both the sacredness of human life as well as the respect due to a community at prayer and its place of worship.
In his 2017 Message for Peace, Pope Francis says: “may we dedicate ourselves prayerfully and actively to banishing violence from our hearts, words, and deeds, to becoming nonviolent people and to building nonviolent communities that care for our common home. ‘Nothing is impossible if we turn to God in prayer. Everyone can be an artisan of peace.’”
We pray together with you that the God who is peace will bring you comfort and lead us together to walk in peace and solidarity. We are committed to working together with you, and all people of goodwill, towards peace, sharing in all efforts that unite us to our brothers and sisters of the Muslim faith.
In solidarity and peace,
The Catholic bishops of Saskatchewan
Archbishop Donald Bolen, Archdiocese of Regina
Archbishop Murray Chatlain, Archdiocese of Keewatin-Le Pas
Bishop Bryan Bayda, Eparchy of Saskatoon
Bishop Albert Thévenot, Diocese of Prince Albert
