Archbishop Smith's letter to Muslim community for Ramadan 2021
Friday, April 16, 2021

The theme of hope is central as Archbishop Richard Smith shares his letter the Muslim communities of the Edmonton area as they mark the holy month of Ramadan. “We live not only for the moment but for eternity, we are concerned not with the fulfilment of self-centred and transient desires but with allowing God to fulfil His will in us,” Archbishop Smith writes in his April 16 letter. “This is the basis or our hope both as Christians and Muslims.


Archbishop Smith announces new Divine Mercy parish in southwest Edmonton
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. Indeed, “Divine Mercy” is a message we want echoed and lived throughout the Archdiocese. It proclaims the good news of God's unconditional love, which reaches our wounded world as mercy, and transforms suffering into hope.
VIDEO: Easter offers all of us a message of extraordinary hope
Wednesday, March 31, 2021

“The Lord is Risen!” is the acclamation of all Christians at Easter.

Edmonton Archbishop Richard Smith said there’s a risk of taking for granted the message of extraordinary, sure hope that is contained in those words.

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.


St. Joseph Seminary rector appointed as new bishop of Prince Albert
Thursday, March 25, 2021

Rev. Stephen Hero, a former associate pastor and vocations director who grew up in Edmonton and spent nine years as rector of St. Joseph Seminary, has been appointed as the new bishop of Prince Albert, Sask.

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.

Guidelines for Holy Week & Easter
Thursday, March 11, 2021

General Guidelines for the celebration of Holy Week & Easter

Holy Week which leads to Easter is the heart of the liturgical year. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the Archdiocese of Edmonton offers the following guidelines for Holy Week and the Paschal Triduum.

Parishes are taking all necessary precautions to keep everyone safe. If you are healthy and able, and if your home parish has space for you, it is best to attend these liturgies in person.

The Archdiocese is encouraging the faithful, who cannot attend in-person in their own church, to participate in the live-streamed celebrations presided over by Archbishop Richard Smith during Holy Week and the Paschal Triduum as a sign of unity. The livestreamed Archdiocesan liturgies will be broadcast on YouTube and Facebook at St. Joseph’s Basilica.
