Parish News and COVID-19 Update

St. Joseph’s Basilica - Cathedral Parish Annual Appeal

This week we invite all parishioners to donate to our Annual Appeal. Our time, talents, and treasures continue to be needed and put to good use. Your support is essential to us, as we continue our mission of worship, witness and service to the people of Edmonton, Alberta, and beyond - thank you for your continued support of the parish, especially during these uncertain days of COVID 19.

In November We Remember:

There are only a few days left to submit the names of your loved ones.  Each year, the Church sets aside the month of November to pray for people who have gone on ahead of us. We especially remember those who have died in the past year. Traditionally, as a gesture of remembrance, we inscribe their names in a memorial book that is kept in the sanctuary as we pray for them. Covid is challenging us to be creative in our response. This year, we invite you to submit names to be included in prayer to SJB.memorialbook@caedm.ca.  The memorial book is updated several times weekly and to view the 2021 book, please click here.
