UPCOMING EVENTS


VIDEO: Second Sunday of Advent | Residential Schools

In this video, the Most Rev. Donald Bolen, Archbishop of Regina, reflects on the readings of the second Sunday of Advent, and we hear the call to prepare for the coming of the Lord. We are invited to prepare the way for healing and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples by listening, understanding and seeking forgiveness for the suffering experienced by students and their families because of Indian Residential Schools.


Do you have questions about how you can help with reconciliation? There’s a specific Indigenous Relations page on: caedm.ca/IndigenousRelationsThis includes a list of Frequently Asked Questions, which is a helpful resource. As a local way to help, you can donate to Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples, the National parish dedicated for Indigenous peoples, online at: www.sacredpeoples.com/rebuild or send E-transfers to: rebuildsacredheart@caedm.ca


DONATIONS for ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST 

Please consider PAD or etransfers
SJE.etransfer@caedm.ca 

Please include:

  • Donation amount:
  • Full name, Address and email address.
  • Specific Instructions: General Parish Fund or Maintenance or Together We Serve. 

We are always grateful for your donations. 


Who are St. John's parishioners?

 How many people celebrated each of the different 7 sacraments? How many families are active in your parish? Were they donating treasure (money) and/or time (volunteering)? How many families used envelopes and/or donated through other means? How much money is being donated for “Parish Fund” donations? 

These funds pay for the everyday needs of our Church: salaries, power, gas, insurance, maintenance of our over-60-year-old building, and most importantly the celebration of Mass itself. How much money is being donated for “Together We Serve? These funds are forwarded to the Archdiocese for disbursement to:

  • CSS-Catholic Social Services, 
  • Development & Peace (Share Lent on Passion Sunday), 
  • Pope’s Pastoral Works (Good Friday),
  • Diocese of MacKenzie-Fort Smith, 
  • Evangelization of Peoples, 
  • Needs of the Canadian Church,
  • Newman Theological College & St. Joseph’s Seminary (supporting our future priest’s educational needs),
  • St. Joseph’s Priests Foundation of Edmonton (ensuring our Priests have a comfortable retirement),
  • St. Joseph’s College Ministry (U of A Campus)  

Our Parish is a vibrant parish with some Families having two to three generations still able to attend Mass together. Most of our Families bring their children for Baptism. Our Families bring their children here for their First Reconciliation/First Communion/Confirmation Sacraments. Many of our Families have their children returning for Marriage. Our Families bring their loved ones back for their Funerals of Christian Burial. And, most come back to celebrate Easter Holy Week and Christmas. We are asking all who attend SJE to think about how they may help the parish financially. Just $50 per month, which is $600 per year, would help us greatly, but all donations of any size are most appreciated. Remember: there is a tax benefit to all donations, which assists you and assists us.

Another way to contribute to the health and happiness of your Parish is through a donation of time. Do you have a talent or gift that would be very useful for the Parish in the coming months? God gave them that you might share them: we hope you will.

Remember: SJE is not merely our grandparents’ or parents’ Church, it now becomes our Church as well. Your generous donation today guarantees Church that the Church will still be here for you, your children, and grandchildren tomorrow.

Thank you kindly.
