Saturday, April 10, 2021With great joy, I announce to you the name chosen for the newest parish in the Archdiocese of Edmonton: Divine Mercy Parish.

Over the past year as we deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re looking for signs of hope. However, it is nowhere near the explosive potential in those words “The Lord is Risen”. All that Christ asks of us is that we have faith in Him and the untold power of his love.

The announcement was made in Rome on March 25.

“I’m being sent now to these people to evangelize,” Father Hero said. “I’m seeing myself as a missionary, working with a whole bunch of other good people there, trying to preach the Gospel.

"I see my role then to help build up the Catholic Church there, to help people come to faith in Jesus Christ through the Word, through the salvation of the sacraments, and to be one with each other and with Christ.”

The current Bishop of Prince Albert, Albert Thevenot, has announced that he will be retiring. The diocese has scheduled a news conference for 9:30 a.m. March 25. More information will be available on the Facebook page of the Diocese of Prince Albert.
