This Week


Human trafficking

Though Thailand is the most well-known sex tourism hub, Kenya’s coast is rapidly becoming a popular destination for people looking for underage prostitutes. A UNICEF study found that as many as 30 per cent of girls ages 12 - 18 in Kenya’s coastal areas are involved in some form of sex work.


After five years

Since becoming pope five years ago, Pope Francis has, by putting God’s mercy first, changed the conversation within the church and about the church, writes Michael Swan.


Music for Liturgy

This week’s Prairie Messenger features its last instalment of music selections for liturgy. Featured are selections for the Second Sunday of Easter, April 8, 2018, to the feast of Pentecost, May 20, 2018.
