The following is a text version of this week's announcements.

Please pray for the people of South Sudan, where civil war is raging, and causing great hardship, fear and suffering. The diocese of Saskatoon has entered into a twinning relationship with the diocese of Torit in South Sudan. Fr. Martin Vuni, who served for a time in our diocese, has sent reports about the dire situation facing South Sudan, describing how many are forced to flee their homes. Diocesan Prayer: In the face of escalating violence and strife in South Sudan, we pray as a diocesan family for our sister diocese of Torit and for the restoration of peace throughout this young country. 

Diocesan Prayer: Lord God, we pray that pastors who are beginning new postings this summer across our diocese will be blessed with a warm welcome and a spirit of collaboration.

Dicoesan Prayers from Earthcare Connections:

1.         May we do all we can to maintain sufficient species of food plants to minimize the risk that disease would weaken our food supply.      We pray to the Lord.

2.         May the Spirit guide farmers and gardeners to use sustainable ways of food production.   We pray to the Lord.

Farewell to our bishop - A message to the faithful of the diocese from our Vicar General Fr. Kevin McGee: “By now you will have heard that Bishop Don Bolen has been appointed as the Archbishop of Regina. Bishop Don hopes that the date of his instillation as Archbishop will be in mid-October but is waiting to hear back from Rome. We will advise you of details as they are known. We will have a farewell Mass, followed by a reception for Bishop Don on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at Holy Family Cathedral. Again, more details will follow in due course. We lift Bishop Don, the people of the Diocese of Saskatoon and the people of the Archdiocese of Regina in prayer during this period of transition.”

Pope Francis has declared an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy this year: 

For more information about the Jubilee of Mercy see the Vatican website at: www.im.va or the diocesan website: www.saskatoonrcdiocese.com/yearofmercy

“Jesus reveals the nature of God as that of a Father who never gives up until he has forgiven the wrong and overcome rejection with compassion and mercy. We know the parables well, three in particular: the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the father with two sons (cf. Lk 15: 1- 32). In these parables, God is always presented as full of joy, especially when he pardons. In them we find the core of the Gospel and of our faith, because mercy is presented as a force that overcomes everything, filling the heart with love and bringing consolation through pardon.”

 (Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus 9)

For more information about the Jubilee of Mercy see the Vatican website at: www.im.va or the diocesan website: www.saskatoonrcdiocese.com/yearofmercy

 

* Join Bishop Donald Bolen for A Pilgrimage Celebration at the Cathedral of the Holy Family for the Year of Mercy Friday, Aug. 5, 2016. The diocesan Holy Year of Mercy Committee invites parishioners, families, CWL, Knights of Columbus, and/or other groups from across our diocese to consider travelling by foot or by vehicle to our diocesan Cathedral for this pilgrimage event in the Jubilee Year of Mercy. We will gather behind St. Joseph High School at 115 Nelson Road, Saskatoon at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 5 to walk together across the parking lot into the Cathedral and through the Holy Doors for Mass at 7 p.m. with Bishop Donald Bolen. Mass will be followed by adoration. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will also be available. Everyone is welcome!

Holy Doors - Plenary Indulgence - St. Paul Co-Cathedral and the Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon are among cathedrals around the world that have designated “Holy Doors of Mercy” for the Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis. As part of deepening the experience of God’s mercy, the faithful are invited to pass through the Holy Doors as an act of pilgrim prayer, in conjunction with celebrating the sacrament of reconciliation (confession), celebrating the Eucharist with a reflection on mercy, and praying for Pope Francis’ prayer intentions to obtain the special blessing of a plenary indulgence.

 

Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia - Think About It:

Family members and those who provide care for dying persons are called to advocate for optimal pain and symptom relief and personal and spiritual comfort and support. Sometimes, what is most needed is that caring people be present with the dying person, to provide comfort and to show respect for the person and his or her journey. That is death with real dignity.

Find information at: www.canadiansforconscience.ca  or contact the diocesan Office of Justice and Peace at the Catholic Pastoral Centre in Saskatoon: (306) 659-5841.

* Are you experiencing the pain of separation or divorce? You are not alone! Transitions is a 12-week diocesan program for anyone going through this painful experience. It helps participants to heal and find hope. A new 12-week session will begin September 20th. For more information or to register, contact Sharon at (306) 659-5831 or e-mail foundations [at] saskatoonrcdiocese.com Participants have told us that the best way to experience the healing journey of Transitions is to undertake it as a weekly program over 12 weeks, giving time to process and absorb the material, reflect, and undergo transformation. However, for some, a weekly journey is impossible (because of distance, job commitments, etc.) Therefore, this fall, Transitions will also be offered over two weekends, rather than over 12 weeks. For those who cannot make the weekly program, Transitions will be presented Sept.30/Oct. 1 and Oct. 21/22 (Friday evening; all day Saturday). Contact Sharon at 306-659-5831 or by e-mail: foundations [at] saskatoonrcdiocese.com
