After the success of a 2019 Catholic women’s retreat in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon, a group of Saskatchewan women knew there was a desire for more – but then along came the global pandemic.

“It became clear to us there was a need, and our work had only just begun. As Covid-19 put plans on hold for a second retreat, we could not ignore that now, more than ever, women were longing for renewal, nourishment, support and community,” explains Sharon Leyne, one of the Catholic women who have pulled together to create the Arise Catholic Movement.

“As our team prayed and discussed what the next Arise event should be, we discovered that our entire team of women had experienced the same struggles, frustrations, anger, confusion, isolation, loneliness, fear, anxiety, numbness in one way or another, in varying degrees throughout the year of the pandemic,” says Leyne.
