We are still not used to her absence, thus would like to keep her included in our staff listing as a tribute to her rich legacy among us.

 PARISH HISTORY

 

In the early 1900’s this geographical location in the heartland of Saskatchewan attracted many settlers from German Catholic descent. In order to meet the pastoral needs of this growing immigrant population, the Benedictine monks of St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, dispatched several of their members to establish a new monastery near Muenster, SK, which came to be called St. Peter’s Abbey (after the colony with the same name) – see www.stpetersabbey.ca. Muenster is located at 10 km west of Humboldt. The monks of St. Peter’s Abbey established the parishes in this area and served as their parish priests. The ecclesial juridical organization made this area its own diocese – called the Abbacy of Muenster – in which the Abbot of the monastery served as its local bishop. The Abbacy ceased to exist in the mid-1990’s when it was absorbed into the Diocese of Saskatoon.

When the parish in Humboldt was founded, the monks chose the name of a good Benedictine saint as its patron, namely St. Augustine of Canterbury who had served as missionary to the British Isles in the fourth century. Monks from St. Peter’s Abbey continued to serve as parish priests at St. Augustine’s until the mid 1990’s at which time priests from the Saskatoon Diocese took responsibility for the administration and pastoral staffing of the parish.
