This Week


Farewell to Prairie Messenger and St. Peter’s Press

The monks of St. Peter’s Abbey, and the staff of Prairie Messenger and St. Peter’s Press, will be hosting an open house at St. Peter’s Press on Saturday, April 28, from 2:00 - 4:30 p.m. We invite readers and friends to join us in a tribute and farewell to our beloved paper, which has held a special place in the hearts of Prairie readers for the past 114 years.


On familes and youth

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, described by some as the “Asian Pope Francis,” made a stopover in Vancouver with a special message for local families.


Eliminating racism

At a public event hosted by the Islamic Association of Saskatchewan, a multi-faith panel of speakers gave their views on the need to combat hatred and racism. The event was held at the Saskatoon Islamic Centre on March 21, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.


Youth respond with blunt honesty

The Catholic Church needs the enthusiasm, daring and hope of young people so that it can preach the Gospel energetically and respond to the questions men and women raise today, Pope Francis told some 300 young adults.
