The diocese is grateful for the ongoing ministry of the Oblates in the Diocese, which over the years has included priestly ministry in our parishes in additions to their ministry at Queen’s House.  While Queen’s House operates independently of the diocese, it offers invaluable space and services to Catholics in the Diocese, such as space for meeting, retreat and Lay Formation, as well as bringing world –class retreat facilitators.  Many of its programs provide nourishment to the Catholic community.

The Oblate charism is characterized by the welcoming hospitality of Jesus.  Queen’s House extends this hospitality beyond the doors of our churches providing a meeting place and sacred space for all members of our community.  We are especially grateful for the ecumenical outreach which Queen’s House offers and embodies.  In this respect and in many others, we are blessed to count Queen’s House, its staff and the Oblates among our partners in Catholic ministry in the Diocese of Saskatoon.
