After her touching testimony at the Caritas Award Dinner, we asked Amber, one of the Service Award Recipients, to come back to share her message.

Amber Wsiaki has been involved with service to young people for over two decades. She was involved in youth ministry across the country with Catholic Christian Outreach, the Catholic School of Evangelization, Saint-Malo Catholic Camps and was a leader for World Youth Day.

Upon completion of her Bachelor of Education, Amber was hired as the youth ministry coordinator for St. Gianna parish, where she led for many years initiatives and outreach.  Amber was also hired at St. Boniface Diocesan High School, where she taught religion, and journeyed with many students.

During this time, she was also hired as the first youth minister at Saints-Martyrs-Canadiens parish, where she was tasked with founding the first youth ministry this parish had seen in years.

Being the only French-speaking parish to offer youth ministry, Amber's talent and dedication was soon recognized by neighbouring parishes, who started to send their French-speaking youths to her programming. As such, she has become the unofficial youth minister for the entire French Urban Deanery.

Amber’s dedication to young people is tireless. She has built bridges with neighbouring Protestant churches, by joining a local group of Christian youth ministers. Amber truly is a bridge builder, and has been innovative, creative, and resourceful in serving young people in her area to the best of her ability.

Cecilia Sanders grew up in rural Manitoba where she attended school in Manitou and Miami.  She is an accomplished cello player and singer. She also loves to dance and has taken lessons in Salsa dance. She grew up old time dancing and country line dancing, and enjoys leading dances whenever she has the opportunity. 

Cecilia will be sharing her dance skills and teaching moves to some fun upbeat songs.

Message from our Chaplain,

Deacon Clarence Fisher.

 

A few weeks ago we celebrated the joy, grace, and light of Easter. After the long journey through Lent, Easter is a season of rejoicing. Christ calls us to celebrate our new life, our faith, and our community. Christ broke down the walls between people of all ages and places, and after Pentecost, the Apostles grew the community of believers. Drawing together people from all parts of their world, they shared their lives with each other.

We are blessed to be a part of this same community. All of these years later, we are called to be a part of this same mission, and in this same Spirit to be a sign of witness, faith, and joy in the world. Events that bring together our community of faith give us the opportunity to support each other, to share our lives with each other, and give us the opportunity to be a sign for the world that we are a vibrant and thriving faith.

Our Church is a blessing to the world; let us be a blessing to each other as well. Faith calls us to open our hearts and our lives to each other, to celebrate our Easter renewal with joy, and to thrive in this life. Come together to live your faith fearlessly.
