Friday, May 13 at 9:15 am
“The special grace of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects: the uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, for his own good and that of the whole Church; the strengthening, peace, and courage to endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of illness or old age; the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to obtain it through the sacrament of penance; the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the salvation of his soul; the preparation for passing over to eternal life” (CCC 1532).
Coffee will be served in Holy Grounds following Mass on May 13th.
Sunday, May 15th following the 9 AM and 11:15 AM Mass
We’re so excited! After two years on pause, we can gather again and enjoy a pancake breakfast together. Thanks to the Knights of Columbus, who are generously serving and offering this meal to us. Instead of a set fee, they are asking everyone for an entrance donation to help cover the cost of this shared meal.
If you’ve never joined our breakfast before, prepare for the best pancakes of you life.
The KofC are inviting all men willing to help and serve to join their Pancake Breakfast team, not exclusively fellow Knights. If you’re so called and able, please contact Barrie Herod to join the team! Email: [email protected]
March for Life
May 12th, 2022
We invite you to join us again for the March for Life in Victoria, BC! This year, we are returning to where our March began. Nothing can replace the energy and experience of processing down Government Street and holding a rally on the front lawn of the BC Parliament Buildings which are home to the Legislative Assembly. The last two years have given us an opportunity to review how we present and deliver the March.
Together let’s make the pro-life movement visible! During the week of May 9 – 13, make homemade signs to hang in your window, garage door, or fence, draw with sidewalk chalk, paint on your front windows, get creative! Take every opportunity to talk to your neighbours about why you are doing this.
And then on May 12th, if you cannot be present in Victoria for the March for Life, we encourage you to take your signs and march through your neighbourhood with your household.
Fire in the Valley
Sunday, May 22 from 7pm – 11pm
ACREAGE FARMLAND AT 29360 TOWNSHIPLINE ROAD, ABBOTSFORD
Now that Covid restrictions are lifted, we wanted to host another great event that’s open to all young adults in the Archdiocese. Last year we had 250 people come out and we anticipate our numbers to be even greater this time. We can’t wait! Join us for a night of community, bonfires, live music, food trucks, local beer, yard games and a chance to gather with old and new friends. This year we will have better parking with less mud, some simple mixers and an opportunity to connect with young adult groups from your area.
Bring a lawn chair and a warm blanket and get ready to have a blast together. Whether you’re from Vancouver,Coquitlam, Chilliwack, or anywhere in between, all young adults ages 19-35 (ish) are welcome.
We envision a flourishing young adult ministry in the Archdiocese of Vancouver, one that is nourished by Christ and deep fellowship. Everything begins with relationship: with one another and with Jesus. That’s what Fire in the Valley is about. This is just the beginning of a movement, inspired by the Holy Spirit, for young adults.
