Pro Life- Life Chain

Sunday | Oct 1 | 3:00 pm | Como Lake Avenue (outside the church)

Pro-Lifers come together every year on the first Sunday in October to bear witness to human life and the tragedies how all life today and especially the unborn is ignored in our country and throughout the world.


This is a prayerful and respectful witness and a great opportunity to support life.

If you are wanting to be a volunteer to help set up please contact Susan Wallace at 604 754 3244.



Discover the Beauty of Devotion: Marian Procession

Friday | Oct 6 | 7:30 pm

Walk with us in faith as we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary at the parish’s Annual Marian Procession. We'll carry banners, candles, and flowers, recite the Rosary, and sing hymns in her praise during the procession. Afterward, there will be a social in the parish hall. Invite your friends and family to join us!


If you would like to volunteer to help out at the event please email Sandra at sandra.donofrio@telus.net

So far, 100 parishioners have donated and we are half-way to our goal of $150,000. The money will be used for building maintenance expenses and the salaries of parish employees. To donate, just go to projectadvance.ca, pick 'All Saints' from the list, and you're all set!

  • Receive a complimentary St. Francis of Assisi prayer card.

  • Capture memories at our photo station (link will be provided).
