Pope Francis' Visit to Canada
We are delighted to share the joy of the upcoming pastoral visit by Pope Francis to Canada on July 24-29, 2022. This visit will be one of healing, hope and reconciliation that we hope will be a watershed moment for the Indigenous Peoples of this land and the Church’s relationship with them.
The Vatican has confirmed that the Holy Father will utilize three hubs for the visit to Canada: Edmonton, Quebec City and Iqaluit. It will be a much more modest visit than a usual papal pilgrimage, due to the Holy Father’s age, health, and mobility issues.
For information specific to the papal visit, email email@example.com.
For information specific to the role of the diocese, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for volunteers
Volunteering for Pope Francis’ pastoral visit to Canada can be of enormous personal, social and spiritual benefit.
If you are 18 or older and willing to share your time and talents, you can volunteer here for innumerable tasks during the papal visit, from greeting and directing pilgrims, to providing translation services, aiding guests with special needs and performing a variety of other roles.
If you are under 18, you are also welcome to apply here to volunteer, if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Looking for donations
Still, there are costs associated with the visit, including lodging and event security, event production costs and site logistics. National organizers estimate the total cost of the visit at $15 million, and are working to secure support from all levels of government as well as the private sector.
There will be two pew collections within the Archdiocese of Edmonton to help with these costs. The first will be on June 18-19, prior to National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21. The second collection will be on July 23-24. Pope Francis arrives in Canada on July 24.
