  • Prayers Requested

    Over the past seven years, the community of St. James and St. Ann’s has been praying for Martin Sask (Mrs. Sask’s husband) who had cancer. Mrs. Sask is our former principal.  Your prayers have always been a great source of comfort to the Sask family. Mr. Sask passed away on Thursday, April 4th. We ask that you all pray for the repose of the soul of Mr. Sask and that you continue to pray for comfort and peace for Mrs. Sask and their son Branden during this difficult time.
