Welcome to the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Website
Thursday, January 30, marked exactly 100 years since the Parish of St. Joseph was founded. Archbishop Richard Smith celebrated with parishioners and representatives of the Archdiocese, beginning with Mass at 7 p.m., including the blessing of the new Blessed Sacrament Mosaic, followed by a reception in O'Leary Hall.
It is with true fondness we bid Father John adieu. Father John will be leaving OLPH Parish on March 9, 2014. He will be joining St. Andrew's Parish in the Westmount area of Edmonton.
Thank you Father John for sharing with us your kind heart and for reminding us all of the importance of community.
Father John embraces the Canadian winter!!

We warmly welcome Father Antony Cruze, S.A.C. from St. Theresa's Parish in Mill Woods. Father Antony hails from India. He is a member of the Pallottine Fathers.
The Pallottines are a Roman Catholic Community dedicated to promoting the Universal, or Catholic, Apostolate by following the motto of founder St. Vincent Pallotti,
“The Love of Christ urges us on!”
St. Vincent Pallotti taught that clergy, lay people and those in consecrated life are sent as apostles for the Church and the World.
It is this mission that the Pallottines perform as they work in partnership with laity throughout the world furthering the Church’s mission to renew faith and rekindle love.
Father Barron returns to OLPH in 2014!!
Based on parishioner requests and our Catholic calling to the New Evangelization, OLPH is happy to announce that in 2014, we will present two evening programs from Father Barron.
