St Alphonsa Syro Malabar Catholic Church is the first Syro Malabar Mission in Canada under St Thomas Diocese, Chicago. Our Mission was inaugurated by Mar Jacob Angadiath on 7th October 2012 in Edmonton after the request from Syro Malabar Community in Edmonton. Rev. Fr.George Chanaganmthundathil is the present vicar in charge of the Forane Church.
At Present our Church has 488 registered families and its size is swelling week by week. New comers, as well as the old families, are registering with us. Under the spiritual guidance of Fr Grorge Chanaganatmundathil, the families assemble every day to celebrate the Holy Qurbana (Mass), to attend the Catechism and to engage in social and cultural activities. Every Thirunal is a fest and an occasion for spiritual renewal.
We celebrate all the feasts of our Lord - Christmas, Easter, Ascension and Pentecost; feast of blessed virgin Mary - The Assumption; feast of St Thomas the Apostle - Dukhrana and the feast of St Alphonsa, our Patroness. We have a get-together on Family Day and a one-day Picnic-cum-barbique every year. We are looking forward to more such activities in the future.
