Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina - History

History

In 188) in the Qu'Appelle valley, an Indian boarding school was founded by the Rev. Jos. Hugonard, O.M.I., who still directs it. Six trades are taught, in addition to the curriculum of the schools. The same Qu'Appelle valley was the cradle of the new diocese, Fort Qu'Appelle beings its only settlement until Father J.N. Ritchot established (1865) a mission at what is now Lebret. Then followed a few other missionary stations for the Indians, around which the development of the country consequent on a Government system of intense immigration has clustered the numerous centres of white population now extant, chief among which are Regina, the capital of the province, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, and Yorkton, the headquarters of a large Galician colony.

In 1911, the Oblates of Mary Immaculate founded the Diocese of Saint Regina. The Oblates were later joined by the Missionaries of La Salette and those of Issoudun, France, the Redemptorists, and the Sons of Mary Immaculate. Upon elevation, the name changed to the current Archdiocese of Regina.

As of 2004, the archdiocese contains 168 parishes, 83 active diocesan priests, 15 religious priests, and 120,000 Catholics. It also has 119 Women Religious, 21 Religious Brothers, and 3 permanent deacons. Its Cathedral, Holy Rosary in Regina, provides leadership in music and liturgy; there is a second "co-cathedral," Our Lady of Assumption Co-Cathedral, the former cathedral of the now-suppressed Diocese of Gravelbourg, which has been merged with the Archdiocese.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    All history becomes subjective; in other words there is properly no history, only biography.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Don’t give your opinions about Art and the Purpose of Life. They are of little interest and, anyway, you can’t express them. Don’t analyse yourself. Give the relevant facts and let your readers make their own judgments. Stick to your story. It is not the most important subject in history but it is one about which you are uniquely qualified to speak.
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)

    What has history to do with me? Mine is the first and only world! I want to report how I find the world. What others have told me about the world is a very small and incidental part of my experience. I have to judge the world, to measure things.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
