Welcome to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Banff, Alberta, Canada. For more than 100 years, St. Mary’s has served the faith of natives, traders and trappers, settlers, ranchers and farmers, and growing families from both rural and urban communities. Thanks to our pioneer families and their descendants, many of whom are still active in our parish today, St. Mary’s remains a beacon of faith, hope, and charity in Cochrane.
Winnie-the-Pooh, Pooh and Piglet take an evening walk. For a long time they walk in silence. Silence like only best friends can share. Finally, Piglet breaks the silence and asks, “When you wake up in the morning, Pooh, what’s the first thing you say to yourself?” “What’s for breakfast?” answers Pooh, and then asks, “And what do you say, Piglet?” Piglet says, “I say, I wonder what exciting thing is going to happen today?”
Like Piglet, we never really know when or where the Lord is going to show up.
But you can be sure of this: He will show up!
