We are the local Ukrainian Greek Catholic Parish for the city of Grande Prairie, and are part of the Peace Country pastoral district. Our mission is to preach, celebrate and live out the Gospel values, that were taught by our Lord Jesus Christ, for the sake of the building up of the Kingdom and for the salvation of all people.

Our Christian heritage comes from the East as we belong to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) and follow the Byzantine Rite. Our Church is part of the Catholic Communion of Churches, of which there are 23 Particular Churches. Each Church, even though it may practice one of five rites (Byzantine, Latin, Armenian, Syrian and Coptic), shares in a common ancient Christian faith, lives out a Christian Sacramental life, and is united under the leadership of the Pope of Rome.

Each rite within the Catholic Church has its own distinct Tradition, which is made up of the following elements: Liturgy, Spirituality, Theology, Canon Law, and Sacred Art. It is important to note that each rite expresses, and celebrates, the Christian faith differently, but they all agree on the fundamental Catholic Doctrines of faith.

Our parish follows the Byzantine Rite, this rite has its origin from the apostolic church in Greece and Asia Minor, which has been gifted to the people of Kieven-Rus and now has been brought from Europe to be shared with the people of Canada.

As Byzantine Catholics we proudly maintain our Orthodox liturgical, spiritual and sacramental way of life. We invite all people who wish to deepen their faith and participate in Eastern-Christian worship to join us. Our doors are open to everyone.
