About The Event:

We look forward to welcoming you again to the 2024 Lac Ste. Anne Pilgrimage on July 20-25, 2024

Each July, thousands of pilgrims make their way to the shores of Lac Ste Anne. Many come in search of healing and spiritual renewal. Some simply come to reconnect with old acquaintances and forge new friendships.

This pilgrimage, which began over a hundred years ago, has become the largest annual Catholic gathering in Western Canada.

First called Wakamne or God’s Lake by the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation who live on the west end of the Lake, and Manito Sahkahigan or Spirit Lake by the Cree, Lac Ste Anne, about 75 km northwest of Edmonton, is the site of the annual pilgrimage, one of the most unique and memorable spiritual gatherings in North America.
