Hail and Farewell !

WELCOME FR. D’SOUZA!

As of the first of August, Fr Malcolm D’Souza will be Pastor of St. Bernard’s and Our Lady of the Assumption churches.  Fr. Malcolm was ordained to the priesthood in 2002 at McMahon Stadium by Bishop Frederick Henry.  He has served at St. Bonaventure Parish, St. Basil’s Lethbridge, St. Peter’s Parish (Milk River), Christ the King (Claresholm), St. Cecilia’s (Nanton), St. Mary’s (Champion), and at St. Mary’s (Calgary). He comes to us from St. Francis de Sales (High River), where he has served as an Associate Pastor since 2016.  His first Sunday Masses at St. Bernard’s Parish will be on the weekend of August 4 and 5.

 Welcome, Fr Malcolm!

FAREWELL GATHERINGS FOR FR. WILBERT ON JULY 29:

The people of  St.Bernard and Our Lady of the Assumption Parish  would like  to take this opportunity to thank Fr. Wilbert Chin Jon for his time with us.   Even though it has only been a few months, we have really enjoyed having Fr. Wilbert as our Administrator. We will miss his reverent liturgies and amicable personality, but wish him well in his new post as Moderator of the Curia for the Diocese of Calgary.  There will be a farewell gathering at both churches on July 29, which will be Father’s last Sunday Masses.

 Godspeed, Fr. Wilbert!
