2019 Youth Synod at Feehan

Catholic in Saskatoon

2019 Youth Synod at Feehan - "Let Your Voice be Heard"

Held January 29-30, with Bishop Mark Hagemoen: a local reflection of the Youth Synod at the Vatican

Through the initiative of E.D. Feehan Catholic High School and Bishop Mark Hagemoen, a Youth Synod was held at E.D. Feehan Catholic High School in Saskatoon Jan. 29-30 for youth in Grades 9 to 12, with a special focus for students in Grades 10 and 11.

The Youth Synod was led by E.D. Feehan student leadership team, and consisted of talks, testimonies, listening sessions, and prayer opportunities. The two-day event offered some 40 young people a time to prayerfully explore what youth are experiencing today and its impact on spirit, faith and life.

Youth shared testimony and insights, with small groups reflecting on themes such as: deepest needs, hope, experiencing God's love, how is God calling, reconciliation & forgiveness; and how the church can be an authentic place for youth to seek and find God.

A day for young people, design and facilitated by young people!

Encouraged by the Ordinary Synod of Bishops On Youth, Faith and Discernment held in October at the Vatican, and in the spirit of World Youth Day which represents such confidence and hope in the Young Church, we are inviting the youth to have their voice be heard!

The partnership of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon and the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools welcome youth delegates from schools, parishes and other communities to come together with Bishop Mark and other ministers with youth on January 29 and 30 at E.D. Feehan Catholic High School, 411 Avenue M North, Saskatoon, SK.

 The intentions of the Youth Synod @ E.D. Feehan was:

  1. To express and communicate the most pressing spiritual hopes and concerns that youth face today.
  2. To discern and receive what the voice of God is saying in the hearts of youth in this time and place.
  3. To activate key opportunities available for youth to live out their deepest beliefs, desires and choices with the support of local parishes, schools and other community groups.

Over the two days, youth delegates discussed, witnessed and discerned, and proposed some directions for youth to realize their spiritual hopes and address their spiritual concerns. Bishop Mark, with other lay and clerical ministers to youth who attended were thre primarily to listen to and empower youth to hear, express and respond to God’s call, according to organizer Colm Leyne.
