Parish History

CTR in the 90s

Christ the Redeemer Church was planned by the pastor and parishioners of St. Anthony's Parish, which had celebrated Mass in the gymnasium of St. Anthony's School (the site of the new parish). Designed by the architectural firm of parishioner Oberto Oberti, the church was dedicated June 29, 1990 by Vancouver Archbishop James Carney with the assistance of the former pastor of St. Anthony's, by then Bishop Peter Mallon of Nelson.


When the parish was established canonically, Father Timothy McCarthy was named its first pastor, an office he held for nearly twenty years.

St. Anthony's School was completely rebuilt and blessed by Archbishop Raymond Roussin on April 8, 2005.

Now at thirty years old, Christ the Redeemer Parish looks back on years of building a close community, supporting Catholic education, and sustaining its members in their journey of faith through a strong commitment to beautiful liturgies, outreach to those in need, and adult faith formation.
