Seminarian Education Fund

Provides funds for the academic, spiritual and pastoral formation that assists men with their preliminary and ongoing discernment of a vocation to the priesthood.

Care for Retired Priests

A matter of priority for the Diocese. Retired priests reside in the St. John Vianney neighbourhood at Calgary's Providence Care Centre or in other supported living arrangements.

Permanent Diaconate Program

Established within our Diocese in 1998, the formation of Deacons through the sacrament of Holy Orders configures these men to Christ, the deacon or servant of all. It is the task of Deacons to assist the Bishop and priests in the celebration of the divine mysteries.

Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

The national assembly of the Bishops of Canada is involved, through its members, in matters of national and international scope such as ecumenism, theology, social justice, aid to developing countries, the protection of human life, liturgy, communications and Christian education.
