Put Out into the Deep: A Vision for St. Michael’s

Our Vision

We are a Catholic parish in the Diocese of Calgary answering Pope Francis’ call to be a spiritual field hospital

Our faith life is centered on the Eucharist — the source and summit of our Christian life. With a history that spans almost 60 years, St. Michael’s strives to create a home for everyone and has been a place where people have encountered the love of God.

A launchpad for medics

Our entire parish community is on a mission to heal wounds and warm the hearts of those whom God places in our lives. Through a life of worship, prayer, and generosity, we form disciples — sent out as medics to show God’s love and mercy through their personal witness.
