DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE AWARD — Armella Sonntag, provincial animator of the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (right) recently presented Gwen Stang of St. Mary’s Parish in Macklin with a certificate of honour, recognizing her “commitment to the cause of social justice and efforts to improve living conditions of the poorest of the poor in the Global South.” The award was presented to Stang at a recent justice and peace evening in Kindersley organized by the diocesan Justice and Peace Office. Stang has served as the deanery leader for Development and Peace in the Kerrobert Deanery of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon for many years. As deanery leader, she informs area parishes about Development and Peace campaigns and initiatives, and invites them to participate in workshops, while also serving as a “go-to” resource person, said Sonntag.
