This Week

Summer schedule

The Prairie Messenger publishes every second week in July and closes for a vacation in August. With this issue the Prairie Messenger is on vacation. We will be back weekly with the August 26th issue.

Benedictine ordained

Cosmas Epifano, OSB, was ordained to the priesthood in Humboldt, Sask., July 16. He is one of two priestly ordinatinations and two ordinations to the permanent diaconate that are detailed in this week’s issue.

Centenary Icon

As part of the centennial year celebrations in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, a Centenary Icon of the Holy Family was commissioned and is currently on tour, visiting churches throughout the archdiocese.

A generous season

Both high and low points in family life are marked with food, writes Marie-Louise Ternier-Gommers in her column for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time. She reminds us that God’s love is as abundant as a prairie summer harvest.
