To Choose To Follow
Jesus is still asking us to follow him, to reach out to the lost and the least of his people. We are here, in this time and place because of the graces that were poured out on our ancestors in faith. Jesus is still with us, still asking us to follow him out on the road, sharing him with whoever we meet.

Called Anyway

Many of us think of vocations as the paths we live as adults: married, single, religious, or priests. These ways of living are certainly a call, and it takes time and circumstances to figure out which path is yours.

Practicing Spirituality

I'm practicing my spirituality religiously. Religion is simply the shared beliefs and spiritual practices of a group of people. And, at its best, healthy religious spirituality is the intentional spiritual practices that allow us to make peace with reality, and draw us closer to God and each other, changing the world at the same time.

On Living and Dying

Over twenty growing up years, Grandpa taught me that suffering and dying teaches us lessons that no other life experiences can. Death forces us to let go of things and people we would otherwise never release. It paves the way for changes, reminds us that we are stronger than we imagine, that new possibilities await us when what we have cherished lies in ashes around our feet.

Meet Leah Perrault

 

Leah is Barefoot and Preaching her way through life, a writer, speaker, and consultant at www.leahperrault.com.  She currently serves as the Executive Lead of Corporate Initiatives for Emmanuel Care (the Catholic Health Ministry of Saskatchewan).  Previously, she served for 8 years as the Director of Pastoral Services for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon.

 

 

Leah met husband Marc, at Campion College at the University of Regina, where she earned a bachelor’s of arts in English; they married and moved to Toronto where she completed a master’s of arts in theology.  Leah and Marc are growing into life and love as they raise their three kids, Robyn, Eliot, and Charlize. 

 

 

Leah is the co-author of How Far Can We Go? A Catholic Guide to Sex and Dating (with Brett Salkeld) and the  

 

 

author of Theology of the Body for Every Body.  Her column is published monthly in the  “Prairie Messenger.”

 

She has worked in parish youth ministry, retail, and low-level government summer internships.  These days, she is board chair for Catholic Family Services in Saskatoon, a neighbourhood car-pooler and volunteer, and an eager host of friends and family for visiting, laughter, and board games. 

 

Often frustrated with the way biographies make people sound more impressive than you, Leah wants you to know that most days she’s smiling, and holding things together only by grace.

 

 

Models of Care

Catholic institutions should be models of excellence in care and willing partners with anyone and everyone who will serve those most in need. But people of faith do not have a monopoly on caring for each other. In fact, the work of loving God's people doesn’t just happen in a Catholic Hospital, a big cathedral, or a faith-based school.
