Re: The Commitment and Contribution of the Diocese of Calgary to Reconciliation and Healing
Bishop William McGrattan has been in consultation with other bishops and diocesan collaborators to be in solidarity with the Indigenous Peoples and their leaders on the next steps in supporting survivors and in addressing the intergenerational harm caused by the Residential Schools.
The Diocese of Calgary is committed to providing a monetary contribution to a forthcoming local/regional financial appeal. This expresses the commitment of the Diocese to the ongoing work of justice and healing in our country with the Indigenous Peoples and their communities.
The amount of this monetary contribution and the details of the diocesan pastoral plans related to this initiative will be announced in September 2021.
There were 25 residential schools in the Province of Alberta. Four of these operated by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) were within the boundaries of the Diocese. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary did not operate any of the residential schools.

Hospital Ministry to the Sick
Important information for ALL Parishioners!!
The hospital list we draw names from is no longer available to the clergy or the volunteers because of the Privacy Act, which protects the patients’ right to decide if they want a visitation or not. This means the hospital staff will no longer ask your faith when you are admitted.
There are 2 ways you can help us continue our ministry to the sick:
- Notify the hospital admitting staff that you are Catholic.
- If for some reason you are unable to speak for yourself, a family member or friend can notify the hospital or parish office on your behalf at any time during your stay.
- Call the parish office (403-526-2265) and let us know that you are in the hospital and would like to receive Communion and/or a visit from the Catholic community. The Eucharistic ministers will get that information and ensure that you will be on the RC list.
- If you enter the hospital on a weekend, please call Gerry Carter directly at 403-526-7455.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!
