On the move

OLD TIMES — This 1921 photo shows the press building, which had been located near St. Peter’s Cathedral, being moved over over to St. Peter's Abbey. The monks have published a paper since 1904, but as of May 31, 2018, the Prairie Messenger and St. Peter's Press will close.

This Week

Prairie Messenger tributes

This week's Prairie Messenger features more tributes to the paper. The last paper will be May 9.

Challenging Catholics

The pope is not changing church teaching, but “is challenging Catholics to undertake a ‘radical embrace of a church for the poor’ in calling for a ‘return to the values of the Gospel, the values of mercy, justice, love and care for God’s creation,’ ” said a speaker at a recent Villanova University conference.

Hope for change

After private meetings with Pope Francis, three survivors of clergy sexual abuse from Chile said they felt they had been heard and were hopeful for changes in the way the Catholic Church handles accusations of abuse.
