Our People, Our Place

The Archdiocese of Edmonton is a family of faith, dedicated to bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to bear on life in our community.

Comprised of 390,000 Roman Catholics, the Archdiocese is led by His Grace, Archbishop Richard Smith, who was appointed on March 22, 2007, and Auxiliary Bishop Gregory Bittman, who was appointed on July 14, 2012.

The Archdiocese includes the greater Edmonton area but also covers a geographic region stretching from the Rocky Mountains in the west to the Saskatchewan boundary in the east, from Olds in the south to Mayerthorpe in the north.

In total the Archdiocese covers some 150,000 square kilometres. It includes 61 parishes with resident priests in cities, towns, rural areas and indigenous communities, and another 64 parishes and missions without resident priests.

Every Sunday, Mass is celebrated in at least 16 different languages, including French, Spanish, Polish, Chinese, Croatian, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Italian, German, Hungarian, Korean, Latin, Sudanese, and American Sign Language.
