Mission & Mandate

Mission Statement

At the service of the church and one with the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate whose mission is that of Jesus Christ sent to announce good news to the poor, freedom to captives and new vision to the blind (Lk. 4). Queen’s House is primarily committed to the renewal of the people of God with special regard for the alienated and suffering.

oblates-2A place of hospitality, beauty and quiet, Queen’s House welcomes all peoples in their unique life experiences. They come to pray and worship, to seek healing and human dignity, to grow in knowledge of self, the world and God. With risk and daring Queen’s House responds to these needs through creative programs and collaborative ministry.

Embracing its own need for conversion, Queen’s House looks to the day when all may love tenderly, act justly and walk in truth with one another and with God (Micah 6).

Mandate that flows from the Mission Statement

As staff working with the Oblates we are dedicated to planning and hosting programs that cultivate evangelization to meet the needs of the 21st century culture. This mission includes offering a place for personal spiritual growth through spiritual direction and evening/day series ascribed for this purpose; working in collaboration with the Diocese of Saskatoon; proclaiming unity through our commitment to ecumenical and multi-faith dialogue; maintaining a focus of solidarity with the poor and the marginalised, serving the local community first and reaching outward and beyond as need is brought to our attention. It also includes: releasing the artistic and creative potential in the human spirit that strives to overcome unhealthy conformity; encouraging radically positive, healing solutions ecologically, economically, politically and religiously for our world. Just as the mission of Jesus Christ was a non-violent one, at this time of increasing violence in our world we see ourselves proclaiming the non-violent Christ to assist us and others in becoming more efficient agents of Christ’s peace to the world.
