  • Annual Pilgrimage. Pilgrims from all directions and nations came together at the shrine on St. Joseph's Hill in Kehewin to pay homage to the Holy Family - St. Joseph, Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ - as well as the Holy Spirit and God the Father.
  • The annual St. Joseph's Pilgrimage 2nd week of August, hosted by the Kehewin Cree Nation and Our Lady of Mercy Church and prayer group, "was a remarkable celebration and profession of Catholic faith, of prayer, of devotion, of love and of praise to the Holy Family," wrote Harvey Young Chief.
  • The pilgrimage, which dates back to the mid-1940s, averaged 150 visitors a day. An estimated 500 people attended the Sunday Mass. "The elders are hopeful that by their example of faith and the continued worship by the faithful, future generations of pilgrims from all over the world will come and pay homage and honour St. Joseph at the shrine."
