Getting “Messy” in the Edmonton Diocese

Lucy Moore at St. Augustine's Parkland

Local Initiative

Here in the diocese of Edmonton we are excited that a number of parishes are getting “messy”. The founder of Messy Church, Lucy Moore, visited in June 2010 to provide us with training and encouragement. To get “messy”, contact any of the churches listed below for details about their programs:

Messy Wednesdays, Holy Trinity Neighbourhood Church, 1428-156 Street, Edmonton
