We are a varied and diverse community. We come in all shapes and sizes; we vary in looks and in ages. We hold much in common. We all share a belief and a commitment to our Catholic faith. We are all members of the Body of Christ. We are his Church.Welcome to the website for the parishes of Assumption and Resurrection. We are facing an exciting time for the Catholic communities of southeast Edmonton.
Our diversity makes us strong. We have much to share. We will share committees, services, activities, liturgical work, education, socials, and most of all our sacramental and prayer life. We will welcome each other at our churches and we will work together to build a stronger Catholic presence in this area.
We want our parishes to be vibrant, welcoming, prayerful, and successful; it is up to each person in the parish to do his or her part. The Archdiocese of Edmonton, of which we are members, is committed to a program of Stewardship. Each member, from the youngest to the oldest, from the smallest to the biggest, is needed to share their time, talent and treasure. Many of you are already involved in ministries and serve the church in varied ways. We hope you will continue. With your help our new joint community will grow and prosper.
This time needs to be a time of cooperation and positive works and words. Change is not always easy but change can bring about great gifts and marvelous growth.
Let us pray for the mutual success of our parishes and of the formation of a cohesive and solid faith community. We are all children of God and have much to gain by partnership and teamwork.
May God bless the people of Assumption and Resurrection parishes.
