All Saints 2023 Lenten Challenge

Stations of the Cross and Soup & Bun

Join us every Friday during Lent for the Stations of the Cross at the Parish, which will commence at 7:00 pm, followed by Mass. To enhance your experience, we invite you to arrive a little early and indulge in some warm soup with a bun, while engaging in conversations with your fellow parishioners at the Parish Centre from 5:30 pm onwards.

First Friday Adoration

Friday, March 3, 9:30 am - 6:45 pm

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for public adoration in the Church followed by Stations of the Cross and Holy Mass. Come and spend some peaceful and reflective time in the presence of Jesus, and strengthen your personal relationship with Him.

Parish Lenten Retreat

Saturday, March 4, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Parish is hosting a Lenten Retreat starting with Mass at 9:00 am followed by the retreat in the Parish Hall. Come and reboot, revive and restore your heart in preparation for the resurrection.

Our guest speakers are Joseph San Jose and Dc. Medard Kamanzi. Please register using the link: or scan the QR code on the poster.

Pray for our Seminarians this Lent

As we enter the Lenten season, let us remember our seminarians in our prayers. Each day during Lent has been dedicated to a different seminarian, starting from Ash Wednesday. As we reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus and the dedication of these future priests, let us ask for strength and guidance for them as they continue their spiritual journey.

Welcome Deacon Medard Kamanzi

February 27 – March 5

Deacon Medard Kamanzi, a member of the Neo-Catechumenal Way, will be spending a week in All Saints Parish, February 27 – March 5. He will be assisting with pastoral projects as well as preaching.

Medard was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of six children, a year before the Rwandan genocide. His grandparents had left Rwanda as refugees during the 1959-62 civil war. In 1994, his parents returned to Rwanda, a country destroyed and unsafe in the aftermath of the genocide. His family joined the Way when Medard was a teenager. Medard was ordained to the diaconate on December 9, 2022, and looks forward to his priestly ordination in the summer.

Chalice: Child Sponsorship

We're thrilled to announce that Chalice, Canada's largest Catholic Child Sponsorship organization, will be coming to All Saints Parish! Join us in welcoming Chalice representative Deacon Alan Cavin, who will speak at the March 4th and 5th Masses. Learn about the powerful opportunity to build a relationship with an impoverished child from one of 13 countries through Child Sponsorship and reveal God's love to those in need.

55+ Group Meeting

Tuesday, February 28th at 11:15 am

Join the 55+ group members this Tuesday in the Parish Center downstairs. Don't forget to bring your packed lunch; coffee will be provided for everyone!

CWL Purdys EASTER Fundraiser

St. Joseph’s Society Second Collection

This Sunday's second collection supports our retired priests who have dedicated their entire life to the Church. Generous support from the community ensures a comfortable living environment, quality medical care, and other essential services for our retired priests. Parishioners can make their tax-deductible donation to St. Joseph’s Society in-person at their parish or online.

Urgent Help Needed for Earthquake Survivors

The recent disaster in Syria has left many families homeless. CNEWA's local church partners are providing essential aid to over 2,000 families in the form of food, medicine, and shelter. Your donation can be a lifeline to those in need.

Archbishop Carney Theatre

Archbishop Carney Theatre is proud to present Arsenic and Old Lace, a classic dark comedy. The show runs from March 2 - 4 at 7:00 pm at the Terry Fox Theatre in Port Coquitlam. Tickets are $17.
