During the Year of St. Joseph (19 March 2021 to 19 March 2022) you are invited to take a pilgrimage in the Archdiocese of Grouard-McLennan to our three churches dedicated to St. Joseph. The churches are:
- St. Joseph Church, 10404 102 Street, Grande Prairie
- St. Joseph Church, 5019 43 Avenue, Spirit River
- St. Joseph Church, John D’Or Prairie, Little Red River Cree Nation
Families and individuals are encouraged to visit the churches and at each visit to pray the Sorrows and Joys of St. Joseph (by Ven Januarius Sarnelli, C.Ss.R.) The prayer can be found in the Pilgrim’s Passport, copies of which are available at the three churches.
Please schedule your pilgrimage visits ahead of time, to ensure that the church is open when you arrive. You can:
If your preferred date and/or time are not visible on the booking calendar, please send an email or call Lauri to discuss possible options.
Public health restrictions due to COVID-19 may impact the accessibility of these churches. You will be notified if there are reasons to cancel or limit your scheduled visits.
You can start your pilgrimage at any of the churches.
At the first visit, pick up a copy of the Pilgrim’s Passport. At the end of your visit at each church, stamp the passport, using the stamp provided, and inscribe the date. After you have completed your pilgrimage, bring or send your stamped passport to the Chancery in Grande Prairie to receive a crucifix fashioned by Christians in the Holy Land.
