Many thanks go out to the Steering Committee for guiding and keeping the project on track, to Ron Boruk, architect of Calgary, for the beautiful design, Norr Architecture and Modco Construction for implementing and building and to all the many donors and trades who gave their time, talent and treasure.
It is a sight to Behold!
The raising of the steel framework of the new Catholic Shrine Church of Our Lady of the Rockies Parish in Canmore, Alberta is almost complete. It is worth driving or walking by the construction site on Palliser Trail, situated at the base of Silvertip Resort. You will be amazed! It is changing daily and to date the crowning glory of the project was when the Cross was hoisted on top of the bell tower. Once completed, it's visibility from the Trans Canada Highway will make The Parish an iconic landmark for Canmore and the Bow Valley.
