Dear Parishioners

Greetings and love to you and to your family.

Coming week is an important week for all the Priests of our diocese. Our Bishop has asked us to do a Virtual Priest Retreat from Monday 25th May to Friday 29th May 2020. Our retreat preacher from Toronto has sent us all his video talks for 5 days. All the priests of our diocese will be doing this virtual retreat remaining in their respective residence. Kindly keep all our priests and our Bishop in your prayers.

Since I will be doing this Virtual retreat, the parish office times will be different for the next week. Kelly Sereda will look after the parish office on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th and Ross Ferby on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th from 10 am to 12 pm. The parish office will remain closed in the afternoon on these days.

However, I will make my self available to you on these days if you have any urgent spiritual needs. The best way you can reach me is either send me an email ( or call my cell number (403-700-9345). If I am in the middle of the retreat talk or spiritual activities, I will get back to you as soon as possible.  

I would like to thank Kelly Sereda and Ross Ferby for their generosity to look after the parish office on these days.

Have a grace filled weekend with your family.

Be safe and healthy. God Bless.

Thank you.

With love and prayers

Fr. Paul Raj
