“Do You Love Me…Feed my Sheep”.

Caring for ALL that God Has Given Us.

Every Shepherd has sheep. This became abundantly clear to me a few days after my ordination as Bishop. My cousins who were living on a farm gifted me with a sheep. It took me back to 1980 when I visited a farm in Scotland for a summer exchange experience where we tended over 400 sheep.

2018 Annual Eparchial Appeal Prayer

Look down upon your servants,
from the Eparchy of Saskatoon,
as we fall before you with faith, O Lord,
and hear our prayers. 

Bless our good intentions,
that we might successfully and timely
complete the work of the Annual Eparchial Appeal.

Help us to overcome all obstacles, for Your glory.
Send Your angels from heaven, O good One,
to guard the work which we undertake. 

Let the fruit of this effort be not an end in itself,
but let it be a means of evangelizing families,
and of growing Your Kingdom.   

Bless our Eparchial Ministers, both ordained and lay,
that they may facilitate encounters between You, the living Christ,
and us your faithful servants.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Savior, save us.

“With the support of everyone here (Lay Formation) and the safe conversations that we have, and through prayer groups, through our presenters, through the Holy Spirit – God guided me to the place that I am now, which is peace and love and joy. I am so blessed and grateful for this experience.” – Marissa Owchar, Lay Formation Graduate, Saskatoon.

“I will be visiting deaneries and doing workshops and lectures to help people better understand  this encyclical (Laudato Si’ – On the Care of Our Common Home) and hopefully we will explore  the implications of what living out this commitment to the environment will mean on an everyday basis in our lives.” – Dr. Lesya Sabada, Human and Environment Development Program, Eparchy of Saskatoon.

 “The Life Transitions program starts out talking about the changes that comes with aging and the effects of those changes…physical, emotional, or spiritual…Often, when people reach a crisis, they don’t know what resources are available or even the costs of those resources or how to even get in contact with people to access those resources, so that is a big part of the presentation.” Brenda Pasloski, Life Transitions Coordinator, Eparchy of Saskatoon.

 “It was a weekend of great conversations… We talked about building that foundation and continuing on the journey of faith.” Kendal Bayda and Jeremy Long, Eparchial Marriage Prep ‘Crown Them With Honour and Glory’, Saskatoon.

“Young active Christians are like yeast. Without them we will not have a true vibrant Christian community. Our Eparchy, without youth loses its form, beauty, growth and breath. Therefore, the formation of young people is extremely important. The priority of Youth Ministry is to help Young people to see and realize the uniqueness granted them by God, so they can become yeast for our Eparchy, and thus for the whole world.” Victoriia Marko, Youth and Young Adult Minister, Eparchy of Saskatoon.

“Most people today get their information from social media, which from my experience, is quite often devoid of Catholic values, of Gospel values. As our mission and our Church’s mission is to go and preach the Good News to all nations, we need to utilize the technology to reach people where they are…and at least present those Gospel values so they are part of the social discourse” – Bohdan Popowych, Foam Lake, SK – Eparchial Pastoral Chair.
