Aboriginal Stream of Lay Formation
This unique stream of the Lay Formation program fills a great need for the Aboriginal, First Nations and Metis people of the Saskatoon, Diocese, the Diocese of Prince Albert and the Archdiocese of Keewatin-Le Pas.
Participants in the Aboriginal Lay Formation stream deepen their Catholic faith within their own cultural framework, with a focus on Native Spirituality.
The program is offered along-side the Diocesan and the Ukrainian Catholic eparchial stream.
"The Aboriginal stream of the Lay Formation Program is a particular treasure, one which is unique in Canada. We have been richly blessed in the Church by the culture, language and gifts of First Nations and Aboriginal peoples. Helping us to move towards a greater appreciation of those gifts, the Aboriginal stream strengthens the spiritual formation of participants, sending them forth with a deeper awareness of their own traditions within the context of the life of the Church as a whole, as mature disciples of Christ who are bearers of those gifts for others."
Bishop Don Bolen
