The 2020 Pilgrimage took place online, and we look forward to next summer’s gathering in 2021.

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 Ste 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!


We regret the cancellation of 2020’s in-person Lac Ste Anne Pilgrimage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to seeing you online here this year, until we meet again in person at the lake in July of 2021.

The pilgrimage continues to need your financial support – especially during these challenging times. Be part of Lac St Anne Pilgrimage’s ministry of healing and spiritual renewal!

Priests and bishops will continue to offer Masses for your intentions during the pilgrimage.
