This Week

Music for Liturgy

This week’s Prairie Messenger features music selections for liturgy from Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18, to the fourth Sunday of Easter, April 26. The Music for Liturgy feature is for subscribers only. Please contact the circulation department.

Best documentaries

Documentaries are often more dramatically compelling, and almost always more enlightening, than the usual multiplex fare, says Gerald Schmitz. He gives his choices for the best documentaries of the past year.

Refugee resettlement

Canada, after dragging its feet, has now announced that it will resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next three years, writes Dennis Gruending. 'The government has also said that it will focus on resettling those Syrians who are Christians. But that is a mistake and an attempt by the Conservatives to play to their base.'
