- Divine Mercy Sunday - Bulletin Shorts, free to use
Mass Readings | So Many Catch Phrases Today. “The doors were locked.” “Peace be with you.” “There was no needy person among them.” “His mercy endures for ever.” “His commandments are not burdensome.” Locked doors cannot keep Jesus away. He speaks peace to us, even in these Covid-19 days. Because he is peace among us – no one has need. Because he is full and overflowing with mercy – nothing is a burden.

- Our Lady of Peace Mission Cairn Site Restoration Project
A Spring 2021 update from Dan Lacroix, the coordinator of the Cairn Site Restoration Project: It has been just about a year since the restoration was completed and the site is looking good! See this picture of the Our Lady of Peace Mission Cairn (2020), an Alberta Provincial Historic Site, caught from a bird's eye view in this photographic survey of the proposed Springbank Dam project area. The potential diversion channel from the Elbow River is directly east of the Cairn (behind the wall of trees captured in the photo) and well below the height of land where the Cairn sits. If and when construction begins it will be a busy place! Photo source here For more information, please contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org

- Arise: Put on the Armour of Light - Retreat for Women
Arise, in partnership with the Diocese of Saskatoon, is hosting a virtual retreat for women aged 18-101 called Arise: Put on the Armour of Light! The aim of this retreat is for women to encounter Jesus through powerful talks, small group discussion, prayer and praise and worship while building community among women. The Arise retreat also provides a unique opportunity for a 5 week follow up with our Armoured Series, included in both the Parish and Individual Packages. This past year has been a trying time and our goal is for women to come together whether virtually or in person within the local Covid-19 guidelines to strengthen community and support one another. The retreat includes talks from the following speakers: Bishop Scott McCaig, Heather Khym, Mary Bielski, Debbie Herbeck, Rachel Herbeck and the bishop of Diocese in Saskatoon, Bishop Mark Hagemoen.
