Rev. Mr. Robert Risling
I have been serving the Catholic community of Medicine Hat in various ministries for the last 22 years - 12 of those as a Permanent Deacon. Presently my parish ministries consist of baptismal preparation, (pastoral care) ministry to the aged, funeral ministry, men's ministry (TMIY), and preaching. Outside of the parish I am serving as a trustee for the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education and coach boxing when time permits. I have been employed with Good Year in Medicine Hat for over 28 years and am the co-owner of Signature Designer Collections with my wife Helena. We have been married since 1990 and have four children; Amelia, Derrick, Isaac and Isabella. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, serving the people of God, reading, woodworking and spending time outdoors.
