The worldwide Lenten 40 Days for Life Campaign is now in progress and we encourage each of you to take part.  This year, Holy Cross parishioners have the option to sign up for the following:   

1) One day for “on site” praying in front of St. Joseph’s Residence for Retired Priests at WILLOW ST. & 32nd Avenue.  That day would be Sunday, March 3, the day that Colleen Roy, a journalist from the BC CATHOLIC will go on site at 2pm, to give a talk to those attending.

2) One day for Adoration and personal prayer for an end to abortion in front of Jesus in the Monstrance, from after morning Mass until 6:45pm on Friday, March 08

3) Those who would like to pray for an end to abortion, at home for one hour, during the 40Days For Life Campaign which is from Feb.14 to March 24, this year.


The Stations of the Cross will be at 7:00 pm every Friday during Lent. There will be no confessions on Friday evenings. 


Because of several other social events taking place in February, Coffee Sunday for February is cancelled.  We look forward to serving you in March.
