Welcome to our Website.

At St. Stephen Protomartyr Ukrainian Catholic Church we know that we are not perfect, but we strive to grow closer to God in all that we do. Our faith is Christ-Centered, saturated with sacred scripture, holy Tradition, authentic, profound, and ancient – yet completely relevant. As a community we understand that we must know, love and serve God and all people in order to become balanced and complete. This call to profound personal intimacy is beautiful and real; both solemn and joyful at the same time. What’s a Byzantine – Ukrainian Catholic Church? Byzantine Christians are those whose traditions, theology and spirituality flow from the early Church in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Most Eastern Christians are commonly called Orthodox. Byzantine Catholics are those who proudly maintain their rich Eastern (Orthodox) liturgical, spiritual and theological ways, and yet are in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church. We recognize the leadership of the Pope of Rome, but are not ourselves Roman Catholic. Our liturgical life is rich with meaning and actions, that speak to our whole beings. Much of our worship remains unchanged from that of our Fathers and Mothers of the early centuries of Christianity. At St. Stephen Protomartyr, ALL PEOPLE ARE WELCOME  who wish to live a Christian and Catholic way of life, regardless of their ethnic, economic, history or any other backgrounds. We are part of God’s Holy Church, here to joyfully lead the life taught by the Risen Christ, reaching out with love and proclaiming His word to all people for the glory of God.  If you are spiritually hungry, and if you are...

Bishop David: Catholic Schools and Inclusivity

February 2, 2016 Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord Glory be to Jesus Christ! Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,             Re:      Catholic Education – A Call to Action I am writing to you today as a call to action.  Over the past many months, Alberta has been moving towards formally addressing discrimination based specifically on sexual orientation and gender identity. Beginning with the reform of the educational system, we have been inundated with information and opinion from both news media and social media. As a Catholic community, one of the greatest dangers we see in this ongoing public debate is the potential loss of the sanctity of Catholic education as a gift for our children, and thus a reduced hope for the future of a just and loving society.  The great work that is being done with children of many faiths in our Alberta Catholic schools is being overshadowed, obscured and undermined by political and personal interests. I have been both privileged and blessed in my visits to minister in many Catholic schools in Alberta.  My experiences there have been genuine encounters with Christ.  I have witnessed first-hand the loving care that school-based staff bring to their students, regardless of their circumstances.  I have witnessed staff and students being the hands, feet and heart of Jesus as they engage in learning, playing, and praying with one another.  That is the beauty of Catholic education. Contrary to what many loud voices would have you believe, Catholic schools are, and have been, places of inclusivity regarding the broad spectrum of diversities that all students bring to our educational communities,...

Year of Mercy Column: In the Garden with God

Author: Peter Yaremko During this Jubilee Year of Mercy the Church offers us a general pardon, an indulgence that is open to all, and the possibility to renew our relationship with God and neighbor. It’s an opportunity to deepen our faith and to live with a renewed commitment to Christian witness. In calling the Jubilee Year, Pope Francis focuses the attention of the world on the merciful God who invites all men and women to return to Him. Ruth Burrows, a Carmelite nun for more than 50 years, reminds us that, “God liked to walk and talk in the Garden in the cool of the day with the man and woman he created.” The initial rite of the Jubilee Year on December 8 was the opening of the Holy Door of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. This door is opened only during a holy year. It is shut tight during all other years. This rite of the opening of the Holy Door illustrates the idea that, during the Jubilee Year, the faithful are offered an “extraordinary pathway” to salvation. When we repent, it’s as if the door to the Garden of Eden is open to us once again. And we can walk in the garden with our God. Our prayer today: My God, I have wandered far from the path you want me to follow. Thank you for your mercy in allowing me to walk at Your side once again. Source: Eparchial...
