This Week


No issue next week

The Prairie Messenger will take a one-week break after Easter Sunday. There will be no April 19 issue. We will be back to a weekly schedule with the vocations issue April 26.


Addiction crisis

While educators, law enforcement and the medical community have all tried to tackle the drug problem, the overdoses, addictions and deaths keep piling up. “The trouble is that we approach addiction as a personal problem instead of a social issue,” says Catholic sociologist David Seljak.


The power of story

Theologian and storyteller Megan McKenna presented a three-day workshop entitled “Handing on Tradition, Sharing Faith” March 31 — April 2 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. The parish serves Aboriginal, Métis, and non-Aboriginal Catholics in inner-city Saskatoon.


Music for Liturgy

This week’s Prairie Messenger features music selections for liturgy from May 14, the Fifth Sunday of Easter, to July 2, the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time. This is a feature for subscribers only. Please contact the circulation department for details. pm.circulation@stpeterspress.ca
