The Dedication Mass of the Shrine Church of Our Lady of the Rockies, celebrated by Bishop William McGrattan, Bishop of the Diocese of Calgary, will take place on Friday May 1st, 2020 at 7:00pm. Unfortunately we have a wonderful problem, we have more people wanting to come to the celebration than we have seating for and fire code will allow. Many of you have already received your invitations. The invitations were sent primarily to parishioners and to some non-parishioners based on involvement with building the shrine and ministries in the parish.
Starting on the weekend of February 8th/9th, members of our parish will be invited to enter a lottery to obtain the remaining tickets for the Dedication Mass. There will be a limit of two ballots per household, each ballot worth 2 tickets. To submit your ballot, you must do so in person at our parish office (108-104 Kananaskis Way, Canmore, T1W-2X2) or at weekend Masses at Our Lady of the Snows Academy (3100a Stewart Creek).
We appreciate your understanding in what was a very difficult decision in allocating tickets for our parish community and those non-parishioners who have greatly assisted the building of the new church.
