Vocation reflections

Two priests in our diocese – Fr. Daniel Yasinski and Fr. Edward Gibney – share their journey toward priesthood:


Prayer For Vocations:

Heavenly Father,
bless your Church
with an abundance of
holy and zealous priests,
deacons, brothers and sisters.
Give those you have called to the married state
And those you have chosen to live as single persons
in the world, the special graces that their lives require.
Form us all in the likeness of your son so that in him,
with him and through him we may love you more deeply
and serve you more faithfully always and everywhere.

With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.

Knights of Columbus Vocation Endowment

The Catholic Bishops of Saskatchewan have partnered with the Sask. K of C Charitable Foundation to create the Sask. K of C Vocations Endowment. The proceeds from this Endowment will be disbursed on an annual basis equally to each seminarian throughout all Saskatchewan Dioceses and Eparchy to help defray the $33,000 per year it costs to educate each Seminarian in the province. See The K of C Foundation website (Click here) for further details and to make a contribution.

The Bishops, dioceses, eparchy, Knights of Columbus and Catholic faithful thank you in advance for your generous support of the education and development of Seminarians through prayer and financial assistance.
