What is it?
WYD is a worldview encounter for all young people. This community wide encounter is centered around Jesus Christ. You can personally experience the universal Catholic church and share the hope of evangelization with those you come home to. Deepen your faith, prayer life and understanding of the sacraments with thousands of other young people.
Pope John Paul once said at a WYD, “I repeat again today what I said at Santiago de Compostela: “Young people, do not be afraid to be holy!” Fly high, be among those whose goals are worthy of sons and daughters of God. Glorify God in your lives!”
to the Mystagogia team for putting on a stellar night.
to Monika Tor for covering Holy Grounds when Hannah’s wifi got zapped by a power outage on Tuesday.
to Sunday Social team, especially Paula North and Monika Tor for stepping in to lend their joyful servant hearts to creating a wonderful after Mass social this past Sunday.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Arsenic and Old Lace
presented by Archbishop Carney Theatre
March 2-4, 2023 7 PM
Archbishop Carney Theatre is proud to present Arsenic and Old Lace, a classic dark comedy. Drama critic Mortimer Brewster’s (James Van Der Mark) engagement to Elaine (Sheridan Nix) is upended when he discovers a corpse in his elderly aunts’ window seat. Mortimer rushes to tell his Aunt Abby (Patricia Lucero) and Aunt Martha (Abigail Carino) before they stumble upon the body themselves, only to learn that the two old women aren’t just aware of the dead man in their living room, they killed him! Between his aunts’ penchant for poisoning wine, a brother (Nicolas Lam) who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother (Luke Ablett) who’s using plastic surgery to hide from the police–not to mention Mortimer’s hesitancy about marriage –it’ll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding. The show runs March 2-4, 2023. 7:00pm at the Terry Fox Theatre in Port Coquitlam. Tickets are $17 at acrss.org
