Abbot Peter Blessed

Abbot Peter was blessed (finally!) as abbot of St. Peter’s on May 12, 2022 in the abbey church by Bishop Mark Hagemoen of Saskatoon. He had been re-elected on Oct. 27, 2020, but his blessing was delayed because of Covid19. The clergy of Saskatoon who were on retreat at the abbey took part in the celebration.
