Family Matters - Growing Holy Families in the 21st Century

What is the meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage? etc. To help renew our marriages and family life the Edmonton Eparchy has devoted a new section on the website: Family Matters – Growing Holy Families in the 21st Century.

Thank you to all who responded to the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton’s “Becoming a More Welcoming Parish” survey. The Eparchial Pastoral Council and I have compiled the results and will be using them as a foundation for engaging our Ukrainian Catholic community in the process of renewal, as addressed in the 25 Year Pastoral Plan (the Plan).

Restoration of the Liturgical Practice of the KISS OF PEACE (ENG/UKR)

The Kiss of Peace is an expression of reconciliation and unity between the people present at a liturgical assembly. It originates with the widespread custom, in the ancient Western Mediterranean world, of people greeting each other with a kiss on the cheek. This was the custom in ancient Judea and was also practiced by Christians.

Jesus the Rule-breaker

We are accustomed to the gentle Jesus, the humble carpenter who taught us to “turn the other cheek.” But there is another side to him—the bold breaker of rules when those rules do not serve justice, love and mercy. The gospel of Luke (6:1-5), for instance, tells of... read more

Our Right To Be Happy

A Father’s First Duty

A father’s first duty is to protect his children. That goes for not only earthly Dads, but for our Heavenly father as well. His embrace encompasses even those furthest from him. This is why the words we hear most often in Scripture are, “Do not be afraid.” Many wonder... read more

The Mercy Psalm

The second book of Samuel tells of the great sin King David committed when he had one of his soldiers purposely slain in battle so he could take the man’s wife for his own. Speaking through the prophet Nathan, God told David: “You have done this deed in secret, but I... read more
