Led by the Most Reverend David Motiuk, Bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton, our community is characterized by its devotion to the Byzantine Catholic faith and its commitment to serving others. Our dedicated clergy and laypeople work tirelessly to create a warm and welcoming environment for all who come through our doors.
The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton serves some 25,000 faithful in 81 parishes and missions throughout Alberta, from Lethbridge in the south, to Manning in the north, and Lloydminster in the east. We provide spiritual, catechetical, counselling, and sacramental care for families and individuals, as well as outreach programs for the needy and marginalized.
At the heart of our community is St. Josaphat Cathedral, a stunning example of Byzantine architecture that serves as a focal point for our worship and spiritual life. The cathedral is home to a vibrant parish community and hosts a variety of events and programs throughout the year.
We strive to carry out the mission entrusted to the Church by Christ Himself to fulfill in the world, namely, to journey with God’s people in their coming to know God, to love God, and to serve God.
One of the defining features of the Eparchy of Edmonton is its commitment to evangelization and outreach whose mission covers all of Alberta. We believe that our faith is not just a private matter, but something that should be shared. As such, we are actively involved in outreach programs and charitable initiatives that aim to make a positive difference in the lives of those around us.
Our community is committed to serving those in need and creating a more just and equitable society for all. Whether it’s through our partnerships with local organizations, our work with the homeless and vulnerable populations, or our support for refugees and newcomers to Canada, we are always seeking new ways to make a positive impact in the world.
In addition to our outreach work, the Eparchy of Edmonton is also deeply committed to providing spiritual care for our community. Whether it’s through our sacramental ministry, our counselling services, or our educational programs, we are dedicated to helping individuals and families grow in their faith and deepen their relationship with God.
We believe that the Ukrainian Catholic faith is a source of hope, healing, and transformation in the world, and we are committed to sharing that message with all those we encounter. Our community is a vibrant and dynamic place, full of energy and passion. Whether you are a lifelong member of the Ukrainian Catholic Church or are just curious about our faith, we welcome you to join us at the Eparchy of Edmonton. Come and experience the Byzantine Catholic faith for yourself and discover the joy and peace that comes with being part of our community.
