All Saints’ Cathedral includes our Dinka community. The Dinka are a language group of Christians from the southern Sudan. Over the last decade many people from this part of the world have been driven out of their homeland and many became refugees. All Saints’ sponsored some of these refugees and other individuals and families who came to Edmonton have joined this group within our All Saints’ community.
On June 8, 2014, The Day of Pentecost, the Sudanese community became their own parish within All Saints’ Cathedral: the parish was named St. Mark-Jieng.
The mission/aim/vision of St. Mark-Jieng is to proclaim the Good News, help faith grow, and reach out to the community through God’s Love.
