Heart  Speaks to Heart

June is traditionally dedicated to the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Resources for this devotion will also be available at the back of the Church throughout June.

Our parish will be celebrating the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on Friday, June 16.

After the 5:30 p.m. Mass, there will be Adoration until around 7 p.m.

Following Benediction, there will be a reflection on this beautiful devotion and its importance today.

Join us on June 16 and celebrate the love of Christ in the Sacred Heart devotion.

Life Wood Buffalo 2022 Bottle Drive

Life Wood Buffalo has kicked off their Fundraising Campaign for Life

In efforts to bring the Truth about the Gift of Life to our community we need your support. We have started a monthly bottle drive with help from  Parishes in the Wood Buffalo Region. Lord willing, we will keep doing this Bottle Drive the first Saturday Mass of every month at the same time and locations, before the Saturday evening masses. Please bring your refundable beverage containers for donation. 

St John’s, 5PM   &   St Paul’s, 7PM


Life Wood Buffalo will be set up with trucks and our banner in front of the garage doors at the Office to receive your bottles prior to mass.  


If you typically do not attend mass at these times or for whatever reason can not drop off your bottles but would still like to help us with a donation or arrange an alternate bottle drop-off, please email:

Prayer against Coronavirus


Almighty and merciful Father, 

We thank you for the life that is your gift, 

For the providence, that sustains us, 

And for your wisdom that directs the course of our days. 

Forgive our sins against your love, 

Against each other and against your creation. 

The threat of an infection of coronavirus is upon us today. 

This disease causes fear among us and has claimed some lives. 

We humbly beg you, loving Father 

To deliver us from this and other diseases. 

Heal those who are afflicted and stop the spread of the virus. 

Strengthen us in charity to care for each other. 

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 

Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit 

One God for ever and ever. Amen
