This Week


Bishop named for Saskatoon

Bishop Mark Hagemoen, 56, who has served for four years as bishop of the northern Diocese of MacKenzie-Fort Smith, was named the eighth bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon in an announcement by Pope Francis released Sept. 12, 2017.


Groundbreaking changes

Pope Francis has decentralized authority over how the texts used in the Catholic Church's liturgies are translated from Latin into local languages, moving most responsibility for the matter from the Vatican to national bishops' conferences.


Music for Liturgy

This week’s Prairie Messenger features music selections for liturgy from Oct. 1, the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, to Nov. 26, the Feast of Christ the King. For information on how to subscribe, contact the circulation department.
