Our People, Our Place

The Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton is a family of Christian disciples, dedicated to serving the mission of the Church by bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to bear on life in our community. 

Comprised of 445 000 Roman Catholics, the Archdiocese is led by His Grace, Archbishop Richard Smith.

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 Grande Cache 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.
