September 9, 2022


This Sunday September 11th, please join our monthly ‘Coffee Sunday’ after all morning Masses (8 am, 10 am, and 12 pm) right outside the door.   We have various baked goods donated by Cobs Bread, Kensington and Valley Bakery as well as some items homemade by parishioners. 

Healing and Reconciliation Collection, Sept.10 & 11

This year’s Healing and Reconciliation Collection will take place this weekend Sept. 10&11. Funds from this collection will directly support local projects focused on healing and education for Indian Residential School Survivors and Indigenous communities in BC. There are envelopes for this collection at the back of the Church on the Offertory table.  For more information, please visit


Our annual Salmon Barbecue is on Sunday September 18th from 3 to 7 pm.  Anyone interested in and willing to volunteer at this Parish event should attend a volunteer meeting on Tuesday September 13 at 6:00 pm in the Boardroom in the Church Basement.


Please have a look at the religious articles from the Holy Land for sale after all Masses.  These articles are hand crafted by the Christians of the Holy land who are selling these items to assist them in staying in the land of Christ. 


Holy Cross Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) classes start on Tuesday September 20, 2022 at 7:00 pm.   Registration starts on Tuesday September 6th and closes on Tuesday September 27th. There are still spots available in the PREP program but they are filling up fast.   If you want to register your child for PREP for this year, please go to the website


Spiritual maternity is a hidden vocation within a vocation for women in every state of life – single, married, lay or consecrated religious – who recognize a call to offer prayer and sacrifices to strengthen and protect priests so they may grow in holiness.

If you decide to adopt a priest in the Vancouver archdiocese, please email to get the latest list of priests available to be adopted, then send the priest name (plus 2 other names of priests).

We will confirm if your chosen priest is not yet adopted or if you need to adopt your 2nd or 3rd choice. Your priest’s name must remain a secret to everyone, including the priest and you will need to pray for him for the rest of your life even after he dies.


Our next Great Adventure Bible Study Series will be on the 4 Epistles of St. Paul: Galatians, Ephesians, 1 Corinthians and Romans.  We will start the series with Galatians this fall.  St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians answers the question “What must we do to be saved?” Sessions are every Wednesdays starting Oct 5 to Nov 23 at 7:30 pm.  Attend virtually by Zoom or in person in the Music Room.  Past participants may join again. For registration or more information, visit the table at the back of the Church after Mass or contact the Parish Office or Tito Macapinlac at or (604) 761-3135.


The Children’s Liturgy program is looking for a few more volunteers to teach during 10 am Mass starting on September 18th.  No experience needed as training will be provided.  Please contact Lucy Sousa at 604-205-9393 if interested.  It’s really rewarding and a great way to connect with the children.  Looking forward to hearing from you!
