About Our Parish

Stations of the Cross

7 pm, every Friday of Lent

If you have not experienced this traditional Catholic devotion, perhaps this is the year to try it as part of your prayers during Lent.

Lenten Penitential Celebration
Tuesday, March 27th

The Family Penitential Celebration will be at 6:00 pm to 6:50 pm.  The Homily is family oriented and this time is set aside for children and their parents to receive Reconciliation.

 

The adult Penitential Celebration is at 7:00 pm

 

It doesn't matter if you've been away for a while, it doesn't matter what you have to confess. Drop by the closest Catholic church and experience the grace of God in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Priests across the Archdiocese welcome you no matter how long it's been since you have been to Confession, and no matter what you want or need to confess.

Forget how it goes? 

And please feel free to share.

Catholic Summer Camps

As the Archdiocesan youth camps prepare for our upcoming 2018 camp season, we would like to share anticipated changes affecting Camp Encounter and Our Lady of Victory Camp. We invite you to read the announcement. We strongly encourage your parish to participate in the camp surveys, as parishes and families are important stakeholders in this consultation. The survey at https://caedm.ca/CampsSurvey will be open until Feb. 28. Please participate in as many surveys as are relevant to you. Thank you, 
Julliette (Julie) Moquin, Coordinator
Office of Catechesis

The Archdiocese of Edmonton now has a news portal, GrandinMedia.ca.

Grandin Media informs and engages through the telling of inspiring stories of Catholic life in today’s world, particularly in central and northern Alberta.

Grandin Media takes its name from Vital-Justin Grandin, an Oblate missionary who became the first Bishop of the Diocese of St. Albert in 1859. At the time, the diocese covered large parts of present-day Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. Grandin was tireless in his efforts to share the good news of the Gospel; it is estimated that over the course of his ministry in Western Canada, he walked about 25,000 miles in snowshoes.

Today his name graces streets, buildings, schools and communities across western Canada, and his snowshoes are featured on the coat of arms of the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton. His cause for sainthood is currently under consideration by the Vatican. Like its namesake, Grandin Media aims to reach far and wide, now snowshoes (and printed newspapers) have been replaced by the digital tools of the internet that you are viewing right now.
