Archbishop Smith responds to Statement of Apology by the Catholic Bishops of Canada

In this short video, Archbishop Richard Smith responds to the national apology issued by the Canadian Bishops, as well as a nation-wide collective financial commitment to support healing and reconciliation initiatives for residential school survivors, their families, and their communities:


Also, there’s a specific Indigenous Relations page on: caedm.ca/IndigenousRelationsThis includes a list of Frequently Asked Questions, which is a helpful resource.

You can donate to help 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.

Rolheiser: Beware of your inner circles
Monday, October 25, 2021

I have often found myself graced by the most unlikely, unexpected, initially unwelcome sources. Admittedly, this has not always been without pain. What’s foreign, what’s other, can be upsetting and painful for a long time before grace and revelation are recognized, but it’s what carries grace.

Landry: Where does prayer fit into our Rule of Life?
Monday, October 18, 2021

While a rule of life usually centers on the sort of spiritual disciplines I mentioned above, many of us live a sort of unwritten “rule of life” that has nothing to do with prayer. The question becomes where does prayer fit into this “rule of life” – if at all?

Rolheiser: Immigration – then and now
Monday, October 11, 2021

Globalization is inevitable because the earth is round, not endless. Sooner or later, we have no other option but to meet each other, accept each other, and find a way to share space and life with each other. Because the earth is round, its space and resources are limited, not endless.
