Commissioning of the Class of 2017

Commissioning is a blessing of the students by our Bishop, as a sacred gesture of their having completed the Nine Month Faith Formation Program of St. Therese Institute's School of Faith and Mission and their being “sent out” to carry the Gospel into the marketplace of their lives. Following the blessing, the students are presented with a
Diploma of Catholic Studies for the Lay Apostolate.

This year, as Saskatoon is awaiting the appointment of a new Bishop and in honour of our 10th anniversary, the students will be commissioned by Most Rev. Luigi Bonazzi, Apostolic Nuncio to Canada.
