This Week


Easter at the Correctional Centre

Easter joy rang through the chapel at the Saskatoon Correctional Centre as prisoners joined Bishop Donald Bolen to celebrate mass on the afternoon of Easter Sunday.


Churches and reconciliation

The road to reconciliation with indigenous peoples is like a marathon, writes Joe Gunn, and many faith groups recently released statements on the TRC Calls to Action. But the “four groups convened by the bishops to sign the Catholic statement have yet to give an indication of their intention to complete the marathon.”


Compelling TV series
