The 2018 Lac Ste. Anne Pilgrimage took place from Saturday, July 21 to Thursday, July 26.
Each July, thousands of pilgrims make their way to the shores of Lac Ste. Anne. Many come in search of healing and spiritual renewal. Some simply come to reconnect with old acquaintances and forge new friendships.
This pilgrimage, which began over a hundred years ago, has become the largest annual Catholic gathering in Western Canada.
First called Wakamne or God’s Lake by the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation who live on the west end of the Lake, and Manito Sahkahigan or Spirit Lake by the Cree, Lac St. Anne, about 75 km northwest of Edmonton, is the site of the annual pilgrimage, one of the most unique and memorable spiritual gatherings in North America. Please join us, all are welcome!
