Parish NEWS and Updates

(Last update: July 5th 2022)



Papal Visit one month away. 

Volunteer today!

 The Catholic Bishops of Canada announced the program for Pope Francis’ visit to Canada on July 24 – 29.

The announcement details events that will take place in and around Edmonton. View full announcement here

There will be two large events at Indigenous Sites:

  1. Maskwacis, July 25th, and
  2. Lac Ste. Anne, July 26th – as well as an
  3. Open-air Mass at Commonwealth Stadium, and a
  4. Private event will take place at Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Catholics to volunteer for the events taking place in the Edmonton Area. 

This is an especially opportune time for everyone to engage or re-engage with the local Catholic Church, to see His Holiness Pope Francis in person, and to come out of their ‘covid cocoons’ from the last few years.  

To volunteer for the Papal Visit, go to papalvisit.ca and apply using the online application form. Or, you can contact our Alberta Papal Visit volunteer office email at AlbertaVolunteers@papalvisit.ca.

 For those who wish to register by telephone instead of using a computer, an office will be opened to call starting Monday, June 26th from 9 a.m.– 8 p.m. through Thursday, and 9 a.m.– 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The phone number will be 780-469-1010, Option 3. 


We hope that you will #walktogether with our Indigenous brothers and sisters by joining in this lifetime opportunity to be part of healing our country’s history. 



Mass at Commonwealth Stadium


On Wednesday, July 6, 2022, public ticketing for Pope Francis’ open air Mass at Commonwealth Stadium will officially open at 10:30 a.m. Mountain Time. We will share as much information as we can at that time.
