Edmonton Will Welcome Pope Francis’ Historic Visit

The Pope will visit Edmonton during his visit to Canada, which will take place from July 24 -29, 2022. The detailed itinerary will be released by the Vatican in the coming weeks. Edmonton will be a gathering place for residential school survivors, their families and communities, along with visitors and media.

The visit continues the Catholic Church’s reconciliation with residential school survivors, their families and their communities. 

The City of Edmonton

The City of Edmonton is also on a journey of reconciliation and we look forward to continue working with our local First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities on our path of truth and reconciliation.

The details of the City’s involvement in the visit are still being determined. The City continues to work with the Church, Indigenous community and other levels of government in the planning of the visit.
