This Week


Great War chaplain

There are no more soldiers from The Great War left to parade on Nov. 11, and the memories of sacrifice may fade a little more with each passing Remembrance Day, but the story of Rev. Thomas Nangle continues to fascinate.


Parishioners share church

“Welcome home,” said Archdeacon Catherine Harper as parishioners from Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church took their seats in the pews of St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Qu’Appelle, Sask. With the Catholic church closing because of the prohibitive costs of repairing the 110-year-old-structure, Anglican parishioners invited their Catholic neighbours to worship at St. Peter’s.


Fr. Joe Park

“I was completely dumbfounded,” said 93-year-old Rev. Joe Ackerman, OSB, on learning that the new community park in Bruno, Sask., where he had been pastor since 1998, had been named after him.
