Important Notes for Newcomers

If you need assistance finding housing, please let us know at least one month in advance.

Also, please bring a letter from your spiritual father to confirm your baptism so that you may partake in the blessed sacraments. The letter should also mention which church you were married in (if applicable) and if you previously served or are interesting in serving in the church.

We look forward to meeting you in Edmonton. Best wishes for your move!
