Today at the 11 am Mass, Bishop Henry installs Fr. Wilbert as our pastor.
Confession, Mass & Adoration on Tuesday, September 22nd is cancelled due to a diocesan event being held in Calgary that evening.
We now have extra Masses during the week that do not have Mass intentions yet. If you wish to offer a Mass for a loved one or for an intention, please contact the parish office.
Please Note: As the Banff and Canmore churches are no longer one parish, if you wish for your donations to go to Banff, please make your checks payable to St. Mary’s Parish. For Canmore it is still to Our Lady of the Rockies Parish.

CWL: Catholic Women’s League
The Catholic Women's League of Canada is a national organization rooted in gospel values calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God. Our theme is “One voice, One heart, One mission.” Our first meeting this fall will be on Wednesday September 9th, beginning with Mass at St. Mary’s in Banff at 6:30pm. The meeting will follow in the Church hall. The October meeting will be in Canmore at the blue house on the second Wednesday of the month. Everyone Welcome!
Baptisms: For all baptisms, a Baptismal Preparation Course is required. Due to a lack of volunteers, the program is only offered two or three times a year. Therefore, as much notice as possible must be given to the parish, so that parents can take the course and set a date for the baptism. Baptismal Forms can be picked up in the parish office.
Marriages: Please Note: The office must be informed 12 weeks in advance of any marriages taking place outside of the parish and requiring Freedom to Marry forms or a letter of permission.
Pastoral Care: Please call the parish office if you know someone who is sick, in hospital, shut-in at home, or has been placed in a nursing home or assisted living facility and would like to receive the sacraments.
