Flags at half-mast

The discovery of over 750 unmarked graves at the former Marieval Indian Residential School at Cowessess First Nations led to the flags at the entrance to the Abbey being lowered to half-mast June 24. This is in solidarity with the Saskatchewan bishops who are committed to walk in solidarity with the residential school survivors and their families and communities.

Planting tomatoes

Br. Denys prepares some wind protection for the tomato plants in the garden. The community hopes for an abundant crop of tomatoes this fall.

Beautiful spring rain

A beautiful spring rain that started on May 23, Pentecost Sunday, ended a spring drought in Saskatchewan. Farmers and gardeners are rejoicing. This rain gauge shows the amount of rain at the Abbey which also resulted in a slight frost the morning of May 26.
