Archdiocesan Camps Renewal Project: Summer camps cancelled due to COVID-19

April 3, 2020

The Archdiocese of Edmonton has cancelled summer camps at Our Lady of Victory Camp this year.

Archbishop Smith recently participated in a teleconference hosted by the Premier, the Minister of Health and the Chief Medical Officer and involving religious leaders from across the province of Alberta.

The advice they received was clear: since there is no expectation that a vaccine for the virus will be found before the summer, it would be prudent to take steps now to cancel summer events that draw together large numbers of people.

Please read this letter.
