WELCOME to St. Mary's Parish, Cochrane

Father Andrew Pyon


Dear Parishioners,

One of the best things to come from the liturgical renewal following Vatican II has been an increased awareness of the importance of assembly. We are all called to be a holy people. Christ is present in the assembled group of people who come for Mass before He is proclaimed in word and before he becomes present in the Eucharist.

The Mass is the central act of worship in our Christian life. It is as old as the Church itself and as new as our discovery of God present and active in our lives everyday of the week. At Mass, we gather together to celebrate and remember God’s saving gifts and grace – at work in us, in others, and throughout the world.

I invite you to come to join us and together, let us celebrate the presence of Christ among us!
