O Lord and heavenly Father, strengthen us, we beseech thee, in love to one another, and increase in us the love of thyself. Deliver us from self-seeking in the work that we undertake; and grant us grace faithfully to serve thee with one heart, mind and soul in the fellowship of thy Church on earth, that rock upon which we build, that hereafter we may be united in the communion of blessed Mary, Our Lady of Walsingham, and of all thy saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
St John the Evangelist, Inglewood
ST JOHN’S is a friendly, family-oriented and welcoming Roman Catholic community, worshipping in one of Calgary’s oldest churches, located in historic Inglewood, the oldest neighbourhood in the city. Today Inglewood is a vibrant arts and culture-filled district with over a hundred shops, boutiques and eateries, attracting locals and tourists alike.
The former Anglican parish was founded in 1905 (as part of the Church of England in Canada), and the present church dates from 1911, a living tribute to the work and ministry of the parish’s second rector, The Reverend Canon Gervase Edward Gale. It was designated as a Municipal Historic Resource in 2010.
Rooted in orthodox Catholic teaching and practice our worship is infused with our noble Anglican liturgical, musical and spiritual patrimony, as reflected in our liturgy, preaching and teaching. At 10 a.m. on Sundays the Parish Mass is a Solemn Mass, celebrated ad orientem at the High Altar with incense, and includes hymns, plainsong and a homily. Mass lasts about 1 hour and 30 minutes, and a Nursery and Children’s Liturgy are in place for toddlers and children. Refreshments follow the Parish Mass in the Cross Hall, adjacent to the church.
Low Mass is celebrated daily in the parish: Mondays at 7 p.m., Tuesdays at 11.30 a.m., Wednesdays at 10.30 a.m., Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11.30 a.m. Low Mass is also offered at 8.30 a.m. on Sundays. Confessions are heard on Saturday mornings from 10.30 to 11.15 a.m., and a priest is available to hear Confessions after all weekday Masses, by request.
We are a young and growing parish, celebrating the joy of what it is to be Catholic. We strive to make disciples of all nations, and are deeply conscious of our call to help heal the unhappy divisions in Christendom. We rejoice in the historic gesture of Pope Benedict XVI in giving us the opportunity to enter the fullness of Catholic life in communion with the Apostolic See whilst retaining elements of the patrimony of our Anglican tradition as a precious gift “nourishing the faith of the members of the Ordinariate and as a treasure to be shared.”

is the generous response of the Holy Father to the many requests that have been submitted to the Holy See from groups of Anglican clergy and faithful in different parts of the world who wish to enter into full, visible communion with the Catholic Church. The Apostolic Constitution opens a new avenue for the promotion of Christian unity while, at the same time, granting legitimate diversity in the expression of the Catholic faith.
Please note that we are a Roman Catholic community, in full communion with our Holy Father, Pope Francis. You do not have to have had any association with Anglicanism in order to attend any of our Masses or services. All Roman Catholics are permitted to receive Holy Communion at our Masses, and are most welcome to share in our life and fellowship.
