All parishioners are warmly invited to welcome and celebrate with His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins on his first visit to Edmonton, his former home, since his elevation to the College of Cardinals in February.

Canada’s new cardinal will preside at Mass at St. Joseph’s Basilica at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 13, and a reception will follow in the O’Leary Hall. A book of congratulations will be available for signing.

On Saturday, April 14, Cardinal Collins will offer Lectio Divina at 7 p.m. at the Basilica. Everyone is welcome to attend either or both events.
