Dear Faithful,

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum. The ban, imposed on all faithful Catholics of the Archdiocese of Edmonton by our authorities, of attending any masses will be lifted on Monday the 1st of June. Deo Gratias. 

This is indeed joyful news. However, in order to resume public masses, there are many restrictions that we will need to abide by and some are pretty dour.

Below you can find the links to His Grace’s letter as well as the News Release. Or you can click here and here. And here is the guidelines.








The Lenten Stations of the Cross will be starting Friday, February 26 at 6:45 pm at Assumption Catholic Parish.

Beginning Friday March 5th, Mass will be added at 6 pm followed by the Stations.

- By Alberta guidelines (Dec 8th) the number of faithful allowed in church buildings has dropped to 15% fire code capacity.  This is less than 70 for Assumption church and about 50 for St. Edmund's church.

- A reminder that masks are mandatory for everybody who enters the church building. The CMOH order 38-2020 dated 24th of November sections 26 and 27 are still in effect, which detail the mandate and the exemptions.   https://open.alberta.ca/publications/cmoh-order-38-2020#summary

November 22nd

- Starting on the First Sunday of Advent (29th Nov) we will have a 4th mass on Sundays. This will take pace at St. Edmund's at 5:15pm.

Mass Times here

- We are now having a holy hour with exposition and benediction every Thursday after the 5:30pm mass (approx. 6:15pm). During which confessions are offered.

From the 29th 0f November onward registration for Sunday masses is open to everyone. This is because we believe with 4 masses we can now accommodate everyone who would like to come and join themselves to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary.

The link for registration is above or you may click here. Only those who are registered may attend the mass. Please read instructions before registering.

The 12:30 pm and 1:45 pm masses at Assumption and 4 pm and 5:15pm (starting Nov 29th) masses at St. Edmund's are confirmed and registration is now open. All masses will be low masses without distribution of communion.

Week-day masses are first come first served. Everyone so far who has come has been able to attend mass. I don't foresee more that the maximum occupancy attending our week-day masses for now.

DONATIONS CAN NOW BE DONE THROUGH THIS WEBSITE. click on donation button above.

Named after the Venerable Vital Grandin, first bishop of St. Albert, and acting under the pastoral direction of the Archbishop of Edmonton, the Vital Grandin Chaplaincy has the pastoral care of those faithful of the Edmonton Archdiocese who are attached to the former liturgical rites, called the extraordinary form of the Roman rite, or simply the Traditional Latin Mass.

The chaplaincy, which has been around for over 20 years, was known as the Edmonton Latin Mass Community until recently and since 2005 it has been served by the priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), a society of apostolic life of pontifical rite, established by St. John Paul II in 1988.

Throughout our existence we have continued to slowly grow, and even though we are still what some might consider a small group of devout faithful, we are now averaging 250 Sunday mass goers split between our two Sunday locations.

We welcome everybody and invite you to join us, so that together we may strive to increase in our spiritual lives, our virtues, and love of God through this most majestic of liturgies entrusted to us.

We look forward to meeting you!

Frs. Massimo Botta and Christopher Blust
