Covid-19 Update for 2020-2021 Formation Program

[updated August 14 2020]

At the end of March all programs were suspended at St. Therese due to the COVID-19 Corona Virus and at that time we were not sure what would be happening this fall. Since then, the staff have been working on developing COVID-19 protocols and guidelines with the information available from SaskHealth to try and ensure a safe environment for the students and staff,  as well as the broader community.  To date we have processed a similar number of applications as in previous years and will be expecting the last of our staggered student arrivals by August 31. For both your and our students' safety, students will be remaining primarily on St. Therese grounds throughout the year. Also, due to provincial "public gathering" restrictions, we anticipate that there will be no public events on-site at St. Therese during the 2020-2021 school year.

If you have any questions about any of our programs or St. Therese in general please give me a call at 306-369-2555 and I would be happy to try and answer your questions.

St. Therese Institute is currently accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Formation Program. With the help of resources from Sask Health and the Government of Saskatchewan, we are currently in the process of developing protocols and guidelines designed to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and community. For students already registered for this fall, emails will be sent to you periodically as protocols evolve. Have a great summer and God bless!

[updated June 8 2020]
In regards to the current COVID situation, we intend and are planning to facilitate a full formation program year at St. Therese Institute for 2020-2021, as we have in the past. Naturally, we are planning with prudence and with due regard to the regulations proposed by government and health officials. The care, safety, and comfort of our students is, and always has been, our first priority. We are moving forward with faith and deep confidence in the loving care and providence of God -- It's the Little Way!
Procedures for students are being discussed and will be communicated at a later date as to reflect the situation as it presents itself in the late summer.

We have decided to cancel the "Spiritual Exercises — an 8-day vocation discernment retreat" event that was scheduled June 19-26; the program would have been bringing together registrants from across Canada, which would come with a risk of virus exposure through air and land travel, and participant interaction. We had previously cancelled our "Springtime of the Faith" intensive courses programming (March - May). We we resume retreat and public course programming when it is considered safe and advisable to do so.
