Queen Elizabeth on an official visit to Alberta.

Today we join the global community in mourning the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Since her coronation in 1953, Queen Elizabeth reigned with dignity and integrity through times of significant change while providing strong guidance and leadership.

Flags on the St. Mary’s University campus will be lowered to half-mast in recognition of Her Majesty’s decades long service as Queen.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family at this time as we join other Commonwealth nations in mourning.
