St. Mary's 125th

On Monday of last week I had the pleasant experience of celebrating the 125th anniversary of St. Mary's Parish in Regina. St. Mary's is the oldest parish in the city of Regina with much history, including keeping the body of Louis Riel after his execution in November of 1885 until it was transferred to St. Boniface.

It was wonderful to see so many children involved in the liturgy. Fr. Danilo Rafael and his parishioners prepared a happy and well prepared celebration.

There was also a nice turn out of priests to help the parish give thanks to God for a century and a quarter of living the faith in Regina.

Parishioners of all ages and callings took an active part in the Liturgy.

In the well established and welcome tradition, the parishioners joined together to share a meal and each other's company.
