Project Advance 2023:
Empowering Our Parish Vision
Your support of Project Advance will help grow your parish and expand the reach of Christ’s love to those who need it most. It will fund initiatives such as pastoral formation, youth and young adult ministries, outreach programs for the vulnerable and in need, and the construction of new Catholic schools. Tax-deductible donations can be made in person at your parish or online. Legacy gifts are also appreciated. Learn more and donate at https://support.rcav.org/project-advance-2023/.

Cribbage Boards Wanted
There is a new Crib Club starting at St. Patrick’s Elementary for students in grade 3 and 4!
We are asking families if anyone can donate/lend cribbage boards for the club to use. If you are able to lend your crib board, please clearly state your name on the bottom of the crib board and it will be returned to you in June.
All crib boards are to be given to either the parish office or school office.
Thank you in advance!
The Hallowtide Triduum consists of All Hallows’ Eve (October 31), All Saints’ Day (November 1), and All Souls’ Day (November 2). This is a time to connect and remember the members of the entire Church – those here on earth, those suffering in purgatory, and those in heaven.
All are invited to a candlelight vigil procession on All Hallows’ Eve and to our Masses on All Saints’ Day and on All Souls’ Day, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the Evangelist Chapel at Gardens of Gethsemani Catholic Cemetery in South Surrey. Learn more at rccav.org/events.
