7th Sunday in Ordinary Time: Live out Lent with us
7th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Urgent Help Needed for Earthquake Survivors
Millions of Syrians were shaken awake by disaster on Feb. 6, and found their lives, like the buildings around them, reduced to rubble. CNEWA’s on-the-ground church partners are responding quickly to provide bedding, food, medicine, milk, nursing formula and diapers to more than 2,000 families seeking emergency shelter in convents, parish halls and schools. At this critical moment, your generous and prayerful support is more than necessary — it is vital to their survival. Will you be a lifeline to so many women, children and elderly people who have nowhere else to turn?

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!”

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
