As of August 1, 2023 Bishop David has assigned Fr. Peter Babej to be the pastor of Dormition of the Mother of God Parish.  Fr. Bo will be going to Exaltation of the Holy Cross Parish on the North side of Edmonton.

But till then the below is still accurate.

Fr. Bo is a married Ukrainian Catholic priest, iconographer, camp director, and fan of most things nerdy. With his three bright university-aged children and brilliant beautiful wife, he knows his missions in life: to serve God, to support everyone as much as he can, and to tell awful dad jokes. If he is not in the schools, colleges, or at the Eparchial Children’s Camp, Fr. Bo is writing traditional icons and/or woodworking in his garage, or preparing to challenge a group of young adults in an adventure of a lifetime. Both traditional and progressive at the same time, Fr. Bo tries to keep the faith real, practical, and profound for all. …and he cheers for the Roughriders.

Parish priests who served the community: Fr. Demetrius Martin Greschuk (1950-1956), Fr. Richard Zuback (1956-1957), Fr. Basil Chopey (1957-1959), Fr. Oles Zachariasewych (1959-1964), Fr.

William Hupalo (2008-2012), Fr. Gregory Faryna (Administrator) (2012-2013), Fr. Myron Pyszcz (2013-2014), Fr. Stephen Wojcichowsky (2014-2015), Rev. Danylo Kuc (2015-2018), Rev. Bohdan Nahachewsky (2018-2023).  In August of 2023 Fr. Peter Babej will become the new parish pastor.
