NEW: Mary of Nazareth

Holy Family Parish is pleased to sponsor the Vancouver-area premiere of Mary of Nazareth, an epic new motion picture from Ignatius Press on the life of Mary, mother of Christ, from her childhood through the Resurrection of Jesus. Prominent Marian priest Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, calls this “the most stunning portrayal of the Virgin Mary on film. It will make you want to love her more than ever. An absolute masterpiece!” As this is a parish fundraiser, all parishioners are encouraged to promote this event.
