Holy Family Cathedral has a spectacular interior, with amazing stained glass windows, and a deep feeling of reverance. The modern high ceilings place a feeling of solidity and strength.

Beauty, technology and faith are combined in a unique solar stained glass installation in the new diocesan Holy Family Cathedral and Catholic Pastoral Centre in northeast Saskatoon.

Public gatherings are have resumed with limitations, but our parishes and our Catholic Church go on.

Prayer and outreach continues, though modified by the need to prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as building upkeep and other ongoing expenses. However, without Sunday collections, many churches, including us, are struggling to meet expenses. Please consider giving as you are able at this difficult time!

Fr. Gerard Cooper

Introduction is coming!








Fr. Deyre Azcuna
Associate Pastor

Fr. Deyre is a diocesan priest from the Philippines. He has two sisters and a brother. His parents were both teachers. His father died when he was 18 years of age. Fr. Deyre was born and raised in a hometown where there was no Internet yet, no cellphone, no cable TV, and the only source of living is fishing and farming. And, he realizes that there is always a virtue in simplicity.

Fr. Deyre studied and worked as an LPN in Arizona, USA. Then, he gave up his medical profession for the service of the Church. What inspired him to persevere and fight for his vocation to the priesthood are his devotions to the Blessed Mother Mary and Adoration to the Blessed Sacrament. He realizes that God will make a way despite the most impossible circumstance to serve God’s plan. Ministry for him is not for confinement in the house/rectory, but for service to the people. For him, it’s a great privilege to serve the Church, and it’s a great joy to love the people.

David Polzen
Cathedral Administrator

David joined the staff of the Cathedral in September, 2016. David is married to Danielle, who is an RN. Before coming to work at the Cathedral, David worked in the funeral industry for 10 years and is a licenced funeral director/embalmer. David also holds a Masters in Divinity and a Masters in Theology. David loves to laugh. It is good for the soul. He enjoys quiet “PJ” days at home (or any where) resting in the Lord. David’s favorite hobby is the extreme sport of napping; and he would love to find more time to invest in this hobby. Throughout his life, David has learned that planning can be tricky: David plans, God giggles, and a whole new direction to the journey comes about.

Andy Korvemaker
Coordinator of Faith Formation

Andy joined our staff in 2011. He grew up in Regina, studied in Ottawa and Edmonton, moved back to Ottawa, and then settled here in Saskatoon. He is married (sorry, ladies) to Jane and they have 3 excessively energetic and loud kids: Spencer, Cassia, and Felicity. He loves good coffee, most food, and brews some seriously amazing beer.

Jim Nakoneshny
Facilities Manager

Much of Jim’s working career was spent as a technical specialist in the banking / cash processing industry. Starting in 2007 he also led the design and construction of the new Cathedral facility as volunteer chairs of both the Cathedral Building Committee and the Worship & Liturgical Design Committee.

He has been part of Holy Family’s staff since 2011, joining the team as Facilities Manager and overseeing the completion of construction in 2012. Jim’s role at the Cathedral is to oversee the daily physical operations of the facility, and through our custodial and maintenance personnel ensuring that it is ready to meet the needs of its many users and the hundreds of activities occurring here each month.

He works closely with groups and individuals to plan and coordinate the many functions being held in our space, including parish activities, family celebrations, school events, community functions, weddings, conferences and more. 

Jim and his wife Pat have two daughters studying at the University of Saskatchewan. When he gets away from work, Jim enjoys a quiet evening with his family, although they have a long list of projects waiting for him to complete at home.
