RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Have you ever considered being a Catholic? If so, then you are invited to come, see and journey in faith through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program. This is the way adults come to learn about and experience the Catholic way fo life, specifically our Roman Catholic tradition and become initiated into the life of our Church through prayer, study and the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

If you or anyone you know living in our neighbourhood is interested in being initiated and welcomed into the Catholic faith, please call Msgr. Vid Vlasic for an appointment through the Parish Office.

Consider joining Fr. John Pak on Thursdays, as he offer in-depth analysis of both the Old and the New Testaments. We are offering two sessions - morning and evening which would fit most schedules. Identical sessions would be taking place on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. For more information, contact Fr. John Pak through Parish Office.

*Due to uncertainities regarding COVID-19, we have moved Bible Study online. If you wish to join Fr. John Pak virtually on Thursdays at 10:30 am, contact the Parish Office for login information.

Legion of Mary

The Legion is a world-wide Lay Apostolate. "Lay" in the sense that the members do not belong to a religious order (although the priests and nuns can be legionaries). This prayer-centered ministry is open to all practicing Catholics, male and female, young and old. Members are given the opportunity to practice Christian charity through giving of your time and talents to the Church, under the leadership of Mary.

For more information about this program, please contact Agatha Chan through the Parish Office.
