For Anyone Who Volunteers in Any Parish Ministry
Called to Protect Session

In an October 10 press release, Archbishop Smith said the Archdiocese will be reviewing its practices and protocols in light of updated and expanded national sex abuse prevention guidelines set by the Conference of Catholic Bishops.

It is clear that very faith community within our Archdiocese has a role in preventing such abuse. Assumption and Resurrection parishes have been blessed with an active group of volunteers who assist in many areas of ministry. These volunteers carry out a very special duty and are in a position of great trust within our faith communities. At the same time we at Assumption and Resurrection are committed to see that all our church-sponsored activities and programs are conducted in a safe environment. As a parish family we are responsible for our children, youth, vulnerable persons and each other.

To assist us in raising the awareness of our role in preventing abuse the Archdiocese of Edmonton is using a video and discussion program named: “Called to Protect for Ministries.”

This 2 ½ hour program is required for all clergy, employees and ALL those who volunteer in any form of parish ministry.

To that end, we have organized two sessions. If you are an active volunteer in any form of ministry please join Father Philip and all our parish staff at ONE of the following sessions:

Saturday, November 24 from 9:30 am – noon at Assumption Hall
OR
Wednesday, February 27 from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm at Resurrection Hall

NOTE: for those volunteers who may have already participated in this program, it is not necessary to take it again … but you are more than welcome to join us!

Together let us keep our parish home a safe place for all who enter its’ doors!


Impact of LRT Construction

The LRT construction and neighborhood renewal is a complex urban construction project and the impact is being felt within the entire community. Due to the extensive disruption and construction please drive and park with caution. Parking on 95 Avenue is permanently removed.

We are grateful to our Parish Council Chair (Miles Berry) who has agreed to be a key contact for the parish community regarding any unique concerns and issues. In order to contact Miles, please call the parish office at 780-468-4071.
