The Pure Witness Anchor Program is an intentional discipleship program based in Saskatoon for Grades 9-12.  Our goal is to provide a transformational year for youth by forming them as leaders in the Church through faith formation, outreach, and community.

Program Overview:

  • Bi-Weekly meetings throughout the school year. Semester 1: Sept 22nd, Oct 6th, Oct 20th, Nov 3rd, Nov 17th, Dec 1st, Dec 15th.
  • Time: 7:00-9:30pm
  • Venue: Our Lady of Lourdes Parish
  • Community:
    • Coming together with other Catholic youth seeking to grow more in their faith is a great way to create supportive community for our youth to help them navigate the challenges of adolescence.
  • Formation:
    • Personal and Faith: Throughout the year we will journey together as we grow in our personal relationship with God and with those around us through different formation programs.
    • Leadership: Training will be provided in leadership and outreach skills, including drama training and public speaking opportunities.
  • Outreach:
    • Throughout the year we would like the participants to grow in their experience of outreach by helping at Pure Witness Family Events, as well as reaching out to their own communities in their parish, school, friend groups, and families.
  • COVID Precautions:
    • Spaces for Anchor Registration are limited to 24, due to COVID restrictions. Please register ASAP to get in.
    • We will be enforcing Social Distancing between households.
    • We will require sanitizing hands upon arrival, and our spaces will be disinfected before and after use.
    • When we sing, we will require youth to provide their own masks. (If they forget, we will have some disposable masks available.)
    • A water station will be available to refill water bottles.
    • Individually packaged snacks will be provided at the end of each evening.
    • If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Carmen at 306-715-1571 – preferably by text – or email her at carmen.marcoux@purewitness.com
