Downtown chapel on the move

For 10 years now, St. Benedict Chapel has served as a spiritual oasis for those who live or work in downtown Edmonton. The chapel was established by Most Rev. Thomas Collins, a former Archbishop of Edmonton who wanted to have the presence of the Lord in the heart of the city. The chapel welcomes hundreds of people each week to its current location on the third floor of the City Centre East Mall. But it will be moving this fall to a new, and busier,  location on the second floor of the mall. While construction continues at the new location, Mass will still be celebrated on weekdays at 7:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and, 5:15 p.m., and on Saturdays at 12:15. There are also opportunities for Confession and counselling. Father Oscar Monroy is happy to welcome you -- drop by the next time you're at the mall.

Here's a look at the new location right now; we expect it to be finished and open in November.
