A hearty welcome to Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples. Located in Edmonton, we are a unique Catholic community of Indigenous peoples and settlers who pray together using symbols, music, and rituals which are meaningful to our People and to our culture. The interior of our Church is designed to illustrate our journey in faith using our Native and Métis culture.
We use sweetgrass, sage, cedar, and tobacco, as well as drums in our liturgy, and we sing songs that speak deeply to us. We extend the hand of friendship to all our brothers and sisters worldwide, to share in the hopes and faith of the People of the First Nations and Métis Nation by listening to God’s Word and by breaking bread with us.

In 1990, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Grandin Province, officially staffed the Parish with Oblate priests to work with the Native people. In 1993, Archbishop MacNeil of Edmonton designated Sacred Heart Parish “The official Parish for the Catholic First Nations Peoples of Edmonton and surrounding communities”. Since then, we have had this place to call our spiritual home, where we can share our gifts with one another.
