Bishop Mark Hagemoen's Easter Message 2018
Dear brother Priests, Religious, and Lay Faithful of the Diocese of Saskatoon:
Greetings to you all!! The lengthening Spring days are upon us here in the Prairies. All over this vast land, people are expressing gratitude for the sun and for the light.
The Holy Week and Easter season is upon us, when we confront how the Creator’s light infuses all darkness, and reminds us of the ever-bearing hope that God’s love and light will conquer all obstacles to human flourishing.
I am inspired about this time of hope and new life as I recall the famous words of the great St. John Chrysostom in his Easter message:
First and last alike, receive your reward.
Rich and poor, rejoice together!
Conscientious and lazy, celebrate the day!
You who have kept the fast, and you who have not,rejoice, this day, for the table is bountifully spread!
Let no one grieve being poor, for the universal reign has been revealed.
Let no one lament persistent failings, for forgiveness has risen from the grave.
Let no one fear death, for the death of our Saviour
has set us free.
The Lord has destroyed death by enduring it.
The Lord vanquished hell when he descended into it. The Lord put hell in turmoil even as it tasted of his flesh. Isaiah foretold this when he said, "You, O Hell, were placed in turmoil when he encountering you below."
O death, where is your sting? O hell, where is your victory?
Christ is risen, and you are cast down! Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen! Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice!
We prepare to again celebrate the anniversary of the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ - the little and vulnerable One who comes at Christmas shows the world a new and ultimate strength; He is a true King who saves all people. God’s vision for shalom and a true community of nations united in love may seem to be impossible in a world which - despite tremendous blessing and advancement - experiences widespread division and brokenness, and is capable of great injury and destruction. Yet, the Saviour does not waver in showing us a new and ultimate way. Indeed His light will illumine the greatest darkness! His is a Light of blessing, respect, compassion, service, sacrifice, and deep love. May His way show us all the way we need to find together.
Thank you all so much for your support and openness to me as your Bishop. The people of this diocese reveal great love and zeal for Jesus Christ and His mission for God’s people. I thank God for the opportunity to serve His Church - His People. I also thank the many priests, religious, lay men and women – who show me what it means to have a generous heart and a servant spirit. May God bless you All. Have a hope-filled Holy Week and Easter time.
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Mark A. Hagemoen
Bishop of Saskatoon

Humboldt Broncos Tragedy Parishes, schools, and helping agencies across the diocese of Saskatoon have been among those responding to the devastation experienced by the community of Humboldt after the tragic accident April 6. Please continue to pray for all those affected by this tragedy. Bishop Mark Hagemoen issued the following statement: “We just celebrated the Easter Triduum, when we recalled the absolute tragedy of “Good Friday” followed by the great surprise and hope of the Easter Resurrection. Good Friday is only ‘good’ because of Jesus Christ’s response to the ultimate tragedy of His rejection and death. God continues to respond to us, and now He responds to the people of Humboldt and other parts of Western Canada who are profoundly affected by this terrible tragedy. I am very thankful that at this terrible time, the People of God here show Christ-like compassion and care through such a community of support. May those who have died rest in Christ’s peace and light! We also pray for the other team mates, team staff, and travelling family members – for their recovery at this very difficult time.” At a Divine Mercy celebration April 8 the bishop also read words of condolence from Pope Francis.
