Gathering Day for Consecrated Persons in the Archdiocese of Regina
On Monday February 13, some 35 religious women and men in Regina participated in a meeting organized by the CRC. The objective of the day was twofold: to reflect on the priorities set out by the CRC 2016 General Assembly and meet and exchange with Regina’s new Archbishop Donald J. Bolen.
Sisters and brothers from these communities were present: Our Lady of the Missions, Presentation of Mary, Sisters of the Precious Blood, Daughters of Mary Mother of the Church, Ursulines Sisters, Sisters of Charity, Carmelite solitary, the Jesuits as well as consacrated from Myriam Bethle’em, Madonna House and OMMI.
In the morning, Archbishop Bolen presented 10 priorities of the pastoral plan for the Archdiocese. The floor was then opened to a question and answer period and the morning concluded with a eucharistic celebration presided by the Archbishop. In the afternoon, Fr. Timothy Scott, CSB, Executive Director of the CRC offered a summary of the work happening around the Truth and Reconciliation Commission entitled « Responding as Consecrated persons To the Calls To Action ». Stéphanie Gravel, Associate Director of the CRC then presented the CRC, mission and priorities, it’s membership, team and different services. The day ended with an exchange between the CRC and consecrated persons living in Regina on their specific needs and future CRC activities in Saskatchewan.
