St Sophia's Parish

Sherwood Park, Alberta

Our new church is complete!!!

The first service in our facility was held on Sunday, November 24, 2019! After 18 years, we are happy to finally have a place to call home, with no more regular Sunday set up and take down, and with room to grow. Since that opening service, we have been working on a few things like making improvements and fixing flaws, and learning how to maintain the building.

Here is a construction update from 7 February 2019:

The dome has been delivered and the building is expected to be completely enclosed sometime in early March 2019. In spite of cold weather, the building has been progressing, with occupancy expected in July 2019!

Here is a photo of the piles being poured for the new building:
