St. Paul’s Parish in Brocket, AB is a thriving community with a mission to be “fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth.” Fr. Roy’s gentle presence brings more people to the Church, as there are more requests for children’s Baptism. There is hope for the community and each individual’s contribution makes the community alive.
On September 2016, the new flooring project at St. Paul’s has been completed. The old carpet caused many issues such as health problems, smell, dust, etc. Fr. Roy and the parishioners are happy with this new and clean floor to celebrate the Mass.
