MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR

Dear Parishioners of St. Jean Baptiste,

It has been very gratifying and inspiring to see the gradual increase of people attending Mass during the past Lent and Easter. However, just as our Lord told his disciples, “let anyone who wants to be my follower take up their cross daily and follow me” so we too, as faith communities , must carry this heavy cross together until the present threat to the health and life of our brothers and sisters is conquered.

The Parish of St. John the Baptist will abide with the new restrictions given by the Alberta Health Services and per the instructions given by the bishops of Alberta that we need to recall our Christian duty to care for and protect each other’s health and well being.

The following are the reminder that are in place:
1. Dispensation of the Sunday Mass obligation is still in place
2. We continue to offer our live streaming on YouTube and Facebook account of our Parish every Saturday at 5:00 PM
3. Weekly masses continue.
4. If you want to attend mass please register at our office starting on Tuesday at 10:00 am of each week and it will be on first come first registration basis.

Thank you for your understanding in this trying times that we are living and we continue to pray for the end of this pandemic! God Bless!

AB/NWT Bishops release Pastoral Letter

"On the Impact of COVID-19 & the Call to Christian Renewal"

This letter – addressed to all the Catholic faithful – offers praise and thanks for the many examples of care and collaboration that have emerged during the pandemic; it also highlights some of the social challenges that have surfaced and that will need to be addressed going forward. 

In particular, the bishops are inviting Catholics to review the impact of COVID-19 within their homes, schools, workplaces, and society in general, in light of the gospel and the social teaching of the Church. Which values, attitudes and behaviours will we want to hold on to going forward? Which may be in need of remedy or renewal?

Letter from Bishop Paul Terrio - April 21, 2020

 


We invite you individually or as a family to say the rosary with the help of the internet. "Come Pray the Rosary" is a perpetual rosary that allows people to say the rosary together on the internet. You can join with others and say the rosary in progress, or start it individually by choosing the mystery you want to say. Through this website, you can follow along as the Rosary is recited, with the visual aid of video from the Holy Land. You can literally see the places where the mysteries take place! You also can keep track of how many other people, around the world, are joining you in prayer. By clicking on the number of people praying and then the map, you can actually see the location of those you are praying with on a map. Please check out this great website at http://www.comepraytherosary.org/.
