Put Out Into the Deep
Mission: Why we exist
St. Michael’ Catholic Community is a Spirit-filled church where all may experience that they are seen, known, and loved by God, and who share this encounter with others.
Vision: Where we are going
To be Calgary’s model spiritual field hospital: because each believer is a medic, sent out from the Eucharistic celebration to warm the hearts and heal the wounds of those suffering in life.
Values: How we fulfill our mission
The Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our faith, which we seek to live and serve with the whole of our lives in contemporary, vibrant, and creative ways.
We constantly renew our friendship with Jesus through the Catholic Church’s sacramental life, as well as communal and personal prayer in order to find meaning, consolation, and direction in our lives.
We openly receive people into the parish community — active parishioners and those visiting for the first time — so that they will encounter the parish as a community of love for all who seek Jesus.
Through our personal encounter with Jesus, we draw others to form a lifelong friendship with him and his bride the Church who, in turn, share this divine love with others.
We readily radiate our friendship with Jesus by sharing our time, talent, and treasure to make his Kingdom come.
Our Four Pastoral Priorities
Make the Sunday Eucharist important, inviting, informative, and inspirational
The Sunday Mass is the highlight of everyone’s week, and everything about the celebration is excellent. It is where we come together to praise God, hear him in Scriptures, offer the sacrifice of our lives, eat the Lord’s supper, and then sent out to build up his Kingdom.
Inspire everybody who is serious about a relationship with Jesus and the Church to become a medic, so they will offer personal and compelling witness on what Jesus has done for them to those who don’t know or have forgotten his love.
St. Michael’s Campus Plan Development
Make the church more beautiful and functional to deepen worship, learn about the faith, and call each other to service.
