Young Adults, Youth, Family and Children’s Programs

We offer extensive programs as we are committed to help children, youth, and young adults to grow in faith. Check the bulletin or call the Parish Office.

Marriages

Contact the parish office at least six months (Second marriages a minimum of 12 months) prior to your wedding. An initial interview with one of the parish priests is essential to confirm your wedding date. A program of preparation will be initiated at that time. Times for weddings are Saturdays 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm.

Health Care and Visiting Apostolate

Our parish Pastoral Team visits the sick, the elderly and the lonely in homes and hospitals and brings Holy Communion to the sick and shut-ins. For this and other apostolic programs please call the parish office.

Union of Catholic Apostolate (UAC)

The UAC is our “Pallottine” group of laity, religious and priests, for the Renewal of Faith and Love in all the Baptized. Inspired by the Charism of St. Vincent Pallotti we know ourselves as “Called By Name” and “Sent as Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father.” For more information contact one of the parish priests.

Facilities Bookings

We encourage the various organizations within the parish to use our facilities. However, these must be booked through the office and entered on the master calendar to avoid any unnecessary conflicts. Contact the parish office at office@stceciliacalgary.com or call the office at 403-252- 2790 to book a room.

REMINDER

All groups that book meeting rooms or the hall on a regular basis throughout the year are asked to submit their desired day of the week and time to the office by the end of August 2016. This will enable the office staff to enter these bookings in the calendar and prevent any overlaps or double bookings of rooms.

Bulletin Notices

Bulletin notices should be received at the office by 4:00 p.m. each Wednesday in order to be included in the upcoming weekend bulletin. Your promptness will enable office staff to meet their deadlines.
