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.

A community in mourning

The city of Humboldt was shaken to its foundation on the night of April 6 after a tragic bus accident that took the lives of 15 young men and injured 14 others. But tragedy destroys and then draws together: on Sunday, April 8, they rose as a community and gathered in the Elgar Petersen Arena and Uniplex.

On holiness

God calls all Christians to be saints — not plastic statues of saints, but real people who make time for prayer and who show loving care for others in the simplest gestures, Pope Francis said in his new document on holiness, Gaudete et Exsultate.
