Godzilla at Holy Family

We will have a parish movie night in the hall at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 21. Our film will be the original 1954 Gojira (Godzilla) in Japanese with English subtitles. Ever wonder what started it all? Come find out. Fr. Franco will give a brief history of the movie and some of the historical details that made this movie so famous.

Note: Due to the dark nature of a monster killing people (it is more realistic than you might think) and since Godzilla will be in Japanese with English subtitles, this movie is not recommended for young children.

Ecclesiology classes

Fr. Franco will be giving classes on Ecclesiology (Theology of the Church). These classes will help to answer many questions, such as why Protestants still speak of a “Church” even though they are so divided, what precisely makes one “Catholic,” and exactly what we mean when we say that “the gates of hell will not prevail over the Church.” Classes will be held in the school classroom at 1 p.m. on two Sundays: May 15 and 22.

Introductory class on the Traditional Latin Mass

… in the hall at Holy Family at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, May 1, hosted by the Vancouver Traditional Mass Society. All are welcome, especially newcomers and visitors to Holy Family.

Project Advance 2016

We are launching our parish Project Advance campaign on Sunday, April 24. Volunteers will be at the church porch to accept your pledges/donations after both Masses and before the 10:30 a.m. Mass. You may also donate online at any time. The funds we raise this year will be used to augment the amount raised last year for the construction of a fenced-in playground for the children. Please give generously. May God bless you!
