Keewatin Archdiocese Workshop, Saskatoon, Feb. 18-19, 2011

A second workshop to prepare for the Returning to OUr Roots Process that the Archdiocese of Keewatin-The Pas is initiating the first Sunday of Lent 2011, was held at Queens House in Saskatoon. The first was in Thompson, Manitoba. As the archdiocese stretches across northern Sakatchewan as well as northern Manitoba, this workshop gathered clergy, pastoral ministers and lay leaders from as far away as La Loche, Wollaston and Flin Flon MB.

This renewal process is based on Acts 2:42 and will highlight one theme a year of the essential characteristics of the early Church: prayer, scripture, the eucharist and community. For more details on the process, check the blog on the Thompson workshop below. The process is being corrdinated by Sr. Susan Gardner OP and Sr. Ellen Kennedy OP of Nelcon House. This workshop was facilitated by Sr. Ethel Detz OP., as they could not attend. The participants walked through the resource manual and experienced different kinds of prayer such as Lectio Divina and gjuided imagery. The session wrapped up with a celebration of the Eucharist, a commissioning ceremony and the presentation of the banners for each community.
