This Week

Annual prayer breakfast

Hundreds attended the 2016 Saskatoon Prayer Breakfast Prairieland Exhibition. The event acts as a fundraiser for charities in and around Saskatoon.

Challenging clericalism

"We have been called to form consciences, not to replace them,” writes Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia. He is challenging the centuries-old parent-child paradigm between the hierarchy and the laity, writes Isabella Moyer.

On Earth Day, April 22, 175 world leaders signed the Paris Accord on climate change. Although it is remarkable that they came to a consensus, Paris didn’t solve our climate problem, writes Michael Swan. There is much to be done.

Olympic spirit

After completing an arduous and life-threatening journey from Syria to Germany, Yusra Mardini is picking up the threads of an Olympic dream with help from the International Olympic Committee, which has identified her as one of 43 promising refugee athletes vying for a spot on the Refugee Olympic Athletes (ROA) team, writes Louise McEwan.
