Sep 1, 2017
Fifty years after the closing of the Convent of Sion at 830 Idylwyld Drive, over 300 former students and teachers will gather Sept 1-3, 2017 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the arrival of the Sisters of Sion in Saskatoon. “The Sisters of Sion have generously made a huge contribution to Catholic education in our city and in the lives of their students. We will honor and celebrate them. We are all getting older, as are our much-loved teachers, and this will probably be the last general reunion of our Academy,” said Elaine Zakreski, a Sion Alumna and chairperson of “The Friends of Sion” The Gala Reunion Committee has spent the last year looking for all the hundreds of former students who benefited from the generosity of the Sisters of Sion in Saskatoon.  “We have managed to find people who attended as far back as 1936. There is a lot of excitement and anticipation out there, among people who will gather to reconnect with former classmates and teachers,” said Zakreski. The weekend celebration begins with a Meet and Greet on Friday Sept 1 and ends with Mass and breakfast on Sunday. All events will take place at Holy Family Cathedral, 123 Nelson Road. Event planners have constructed a huge display that includes a pictorial wall, depicting the history of the Academy and its students through the years. The wall is full of the obituaries of former Sionians, stories of those still living, photographs of teachers and students, and artifacts of all kinds. A key event will be the presentation by two of the Sisters of Sion (Sr. Jocelyn Monette and Sr. Marge Zdunich, both Saskatoon Sion grads) about Sion’s Charism in the World Today.  For further information: Call Elaine Leier Zakreski 306-652-1382.

Golf Classic in support of Prairie Hospice Society

Aug 21, 2017
Are you a golfer? Consider supporting the Prairie Hospice Society this year on August 21 at their Charity Golf Classic at the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club sponsored by Acadia McKague’s Funeral Centre. What is Prairie Hospice Society? Why should you help? Prairie Hospice Society is a registered Canadian Charity. Saskatoon does not have a Residential Hospice – a place where end-of-life (terminally ill) individuals can live out their last days, weeks and months in a warm, friendly, homey and safe environment.  They require a hospice when they lack the supports that would allow them to stay at home and die at home.  Prairie Hospice Society has developed a program called “Hospice without Walls” whereby we have trained over 100 volunteers to go into the homes of terminally people and provide them with non-medical hospice support and services.  At any given time, we are supporting 50 or more individuals and their families– so our mission is to help them LIVE until they die!  The satisfaction of our clients has been remarkably positive. Prairie Hospice Society does not receive any government support and is entirely reliant upon the generosity of individual donors, local companies, charitable organizations and granting agencies.  Our Charity Golf Classic has raised over $87,000 in the past two years.  The annual budget for Prairie Hospice (largely due to staffing costs – volunteer co-ordinators and office staff) is more than $140,000 per year. Join us on August 21, 1pm start at Saskatoon Golf & Country Club, entry $250 includes a partial charity receipt (reduced entry for SGCC members) and includes Dinner, Prizes & Silent Auction, non-competitive format.
