St. Albert Catholic Parish

parish-angleThe St. Albert Catholic Parish Church sits atop Mission Hill in St. Albert on the same site that Oblate Father Albert Lacombe and Bishop Alexandre Taché chose to establish a mission in 1861.

Today our parish comprises around 2000 families and is a varied, active and welcoming community of the faithful.

Mission Statement

Daring to walk in the footsteps of those who came before us to this mission hill, we, St. Albert Catholic Parish, strive to become the living presence of Christ by being a sacramental and socially active community of faith. We gather on a prayerful journey to nurture one another and together with our youth we further enrich our tradition. United as God's people, we care for the sacred universe created for the benefit of all.

Our Schools

We are blessed to have a strong relationship with the Greater St. Albert Catholic School Division and our seven associated Catholic schools.  We offer ministry to these dynamic educational communities, and their presence at St. Albert Catholic Parish enriches the church, the body of Christ.  We invite you to strongly consider Catholic schooling for your children.

150th Anniversary 2011: Rooted in Faith, Growing in Love, Living in Hope


St. Albert Parish celebrated its 150th anniversary throughout 2011. "Rooted in faith, growing in love, living in hope" was the motto for this year. We experienced one special celebration or event each month and many of these recalled and honoured those who had come before us to found this parish and we were reminded that we are truly rooted in faith.
