dc.description.abstractPrivate institutions such as churches played a prominent role in the lives of immigrants to western Canada in the first half of the twentieth century. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the role of the Roman Catholic Church with respect to Catholic immigrants in the Diocese of Calgary from 1912 to 1967. Throughout the period, the Catholic clergy of the Calgary Diocese sought to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs of the newly arrived immigrants. Inspired by the drive to create a Christian community founded on the basis of a shared reverence for the Church, the four Bishops as well as the clergy and diocesan staff demonstrated a primary interest in safeguarding the faith of immigrants and promoting respect for the duties of citizenship among the new Canadians. This study seeks to provide a glimpse of the reception or place prepared for the Catholic immigrant to southern Alberta by the Roman Catholic Church.
