Religious Articles SALE
If you are looking for something to help you or your family live your faith, the CWL is selling religious articles at the back of the Church after the 5:00 pm Mass this Saturday (October 22) and after the 8:00 am, 10:00 am & 12:00 pm Masses on Sunday (October 23). At this time, we can accept only cheque or cash for payment.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
This Sunday October 23 there is a Pancake breakfast after the 8:00 am and 10:00 am Masses in the Gym. All proceeds from the Pancake breakfast go to the RCIA program
Thursday October 27 – Installation of Officers starting with mass at 7pm.
Tickets for the Knights of Columbus Annual Charity Appeal can be bought from the following link: https://kofcdraw.net/C5423. First prize is a 2023 Toyota Rav4 and early bird draws begin on October 31.
Our program will run for only two weekends: OCT 29 – NOV 6. Clear plastic bags will be provided to help us sort through the donations and these can be picked up in the church foyer. Please place the men’s and women’s donations in separate bags. Only the following articles are needed: blankets, winter coats, gloves/mittens, boots, socks, toques and scarves. Please ensure your donations are in good condition and that the items are CLEAN and REUSABLE. You are most welcome to donate new items. Please tag your donation bag “Homeless Men” or “Homeless Women” and place it near the homeless box at the inside entrance of the church. Since the homeless do not have a place to stay and/or or live in shelters, they cannot accept furniture or cooking utensils. If you have questions, please phone or text Dillon at 604-561-6918. Thank you for your support in reaching out to those in need.

PERMANENT DIACONATE PROGRAM
Men of the parish – are you called to be a Deacon?
Deacons are ordained not to the priesthood but for service. Deacons are official teachers of the Gospel, they preside at celebrations of baptism, funerals, matrimony and they visit the infirm, imprisoned and needy. Deacons may be married or single.
Join us on Saturday November 5th for a Special Talk: “Come and Serve: Discerning the Permanent Diaconate” at Christ the Redeemer Parish (599 Keith Rd, West Vancouver) from 9:00 am to 1:00 p.m.
Men interested in this ordained ministry, along with their wives, are invited. Registration is required and accepted until October 28. (A light lunch will be provided.) Please register at email@example.com
SAVE THE DATE – 2023
Please mark your calendars for our Super Bowl party on Sunday, February 12, 2023 and for our annual Holy Cross Golf Tournament on Friday, May 12, 2023.
