Update September 17, 2021 


A “Big Thank You” to all who helped make this event very successful….from the organizers, helpers and to all who attended.  Everyone seemed so happy to be there, seeing and catching up with ones they haven’t seen in a while, due to Covid.  Even the weather cooperated!  It was truly a day enjoyed by all.           


This weekend before and after all Masses Michael from Bethlehem will be selling religious olive-wood carvings hand crafted in Bethlehem and Jerusalem to support Christian families in the Holy Land. These articles include Rosaries, Crosses, Figures, etc… and can be used as gifts for Christmas, First Communion, and other occasions.


We are looking for a pianist for our Saturday 5:00 pm Choir Mass. If you are able to help, please, contact the parish office. If you are able to commit only a few times a month that would be fine, too.


Our next Great Adventure Bible Study is “Hebrews: The New and Eternal Covenant”, a 9-session Catholic Bible Study starting Wednesday, October 6 at 7:30 pm in the Music Room.  It is open to returning and new participants.  Registration or more information is available after Mass September 25/26 and October 2/3; or contact Tito Macapinlac (604) 761-3135, or the Parish Office.  The $45 registration fee covers the workbook and the 9 sessions with Dr. Andrew Swafford as presenter in his DVD.
