See the latest Catholic stories at the Archdiocese of Edmonton’s news portal, GrandinMedia.ca.

Grandin Media informs and engages through the telling of inspiring stories of Catholic life in today’s world, particularly in central and northern Alberta.

Grandin Media takes its name from Vital-Justin Grandin, an Oblate who was tireless in his efforts to share the good news of the Gospel.

At the time, the diocese covered large parts of present-day Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. Grandin walked about 25,000 miles in snowshoes over the course of his ministry.
