We will welcome several new priests to the Archdiocese of Edmonton over the next few months. Here's a  list of the 2021 appointments. Names in red signify priests who have arrived most recently; please keep them in your prayers.

With gratitude for the work of the Clergy Personnel Committee, we are pleased to announce the following appointments in the Archdiocese of Edmonton which are effective 15 July 2021 (unless otherwise indicated).

To all the priests serving our archdiocesan Church, may God bless you abundantly as you continue your ministry with dedication, generosity and joy.

We express our gratitude to all who will be assuming new responsibilities. They have responded to the needs of the Archdiocese with generous spirits. We ask the people in parishes where changes are taking place to warmly welcome their new pastoral leaders into their midst.

We also extend profound gratitude to the priests who are leaving their faithful ministry in our archdiocese. We are grateful to them for their generosity in serving here. Each in his own way has deeply enriched the lives of the faithful of the Archdiocese, and we wish them well in the future.
