Knights Of Columbus Open House

The knights of Columbus have an open house, and you're invited!

To kick off the start of their fraternal year, the Knights of Columbus are hosting an Open House on September 26 at 7:00 pm at the Parish Centre.

You might have heard about us through the various activities we hold for the parish and the community, but this is an opportunity to get to know us and find out why, for over 140 years, this fraternity of men has strived to better ourselves and our world. Wives and girlfriends are welcome to attend.

Safe Haven Sunday

The family home is to be a safe haven. But the inappropriate use of technology in the home deprives it of this role and is the greatest threat to the sanctity of marriages and families today. Pornography and other online threats are often one click away, and parents can feel overwhelmed with not knowing how best to protect their children in our fast-paced digital world.

On October 2-3, the Archdiocese of Vancouver will celebrate Safe Haven Sunday. This awareness day will provide access to practical resources that any caring adult can use to protect themselves and our young people from online risks.

Liturgy of the Word for Children

Liturgy of the Word for Children has started! It is a chance to let the small children hear and learn about the Word in children’s language. They learn prayers, songs, and responses at Mass.

Welcome all young families, and we hope that you will consider helping out. We provide training for volunteers.

Marian Procession

We are calling all youth, parents, parishioners and friends! We're hosting a Marian event on Friday, October 1st!

The procession will be led by QAS and PREP's first communicants, the Knights Coloured Guards, and Our Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima. It will be a time of celebration, a time of prayers, recognizing our oneness in the Lord, and expressing the diversity of cultures and languages, all under the loving care of Blessed Mother.

We'll gather in church for mass at 7 pm, followed by the procession. As we process from the church around the parish grounds and Queen of All Saints school parking lot, we pause at each of the five stations to meditate on the life of Christ and pray the Rosary in multiple languages.

We end our prayers at the parish center with some refreshments. Should you wish to bring finger food to add to our bounty, kindly drop them off in a disposable platter or container at the parish center before 7 pm.

Life Chain

On October 3rd, All Saints Parish will be hosting a Life Chain just before 3 pm!

A Life Chain is where parishioners stand together in protest against Canada's current abortion laws. We will stand side-by-side silently praying on Como Lake Avenue. Additionally, we'll have signs calling out the injustice of abortion. Let's make your voices heard!

Pilgrim Statue

Do you know we have been running this Family Rosary Ministry for the past 20 plus years?

Mother Mary wishes to visit your homes. In the comfort and privacy of your homes, in times of celebration, in times of joy, in times of needs and sadness or just for blessings, she guides you and helps you to build a deeper relationship with her beloved son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Through the Crusade of the Family Rosary, we hope to encourage as many families as possible to recognize this incredibly powerful Christ-centred series of prayers ( Joyful Mysteries, Luminous Mysteries, Sorrowful Mysteries and Glorious Mysteries ). The secret that makes this prayer so effective is that the Rosary is both prayer and meditation. It is addressed to the Father, the Blessed Virgin and the Holy Trinity and is a meditation on the whole life of Christ.

We schedule visits to homes every Saturday, leaving the statue of Blessed Mother for one week before moving on to the next home. In May and October, we have two statutes; one follows the Saturday schedule and one on the Sunday schedule.

If you are interested in receiving the Pilgrim Virgin Statue, please contact any of the following volunteers. We schedule on a “first come, first serve” basis.
