Queen of All Saints School Open House

Monday, January 9, 2023 at 7:00 p.m.

QAS is inviting you to their open house to come and listen to what the school has to offer.

Kindergarten and new student (Grades 1 to 7) applications are now being accepted for

September, 2023. Kindergarten students must turn 5 years of age before December 31, 2023.

You can download an application form from the schools website at qasbc.ca and submit it to the school office. Application forms will also be available at the Open House.

Kindergarten applications should be submitted no later than January 13, 2023.

Interviews for all new students and their families will begin in January.


Project Advance

Our parish campaign has raised $105,000 so far – half of that amount will go to the archbishop, the remainder will be used by the parish to fund additional staff salaries. The 2022 goal is $130,000 so another $25,000 is needed before the end of December.


If you have not already done so, please make your Project Advance donation soon. The easiest way is through the archdiocesan website...


  • Go to http://projectadvance.ca.

  • Choose All Saints at the very top of the parish listings then enter your donation amount and means of payment.

  • Your tax receipt will be emailed to you.

Let us work together to build up a strong and growing All Saints Parish.

As Advent approaches, we are once again taking names of those who wish to have a

Christmas hamper. Delivery date will be December 17, 2022.

To be properly prepared for Christmas, get out of the mall and come to Mass. After mass join us for food, music and special preaching. Come and enjoy yourself with other parishioners.
