Gaudete Sunday raffle and silent auction

Gaudete Sunday is on December 15 this year, and once again the Vancouver Traditional Mass Society is requesting donations of new or as-new items for our annual silent auction. All funds raised from the auction and the raffle will go to the support of Canadian seminarians at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary. Lightly used items are requested as this is not a flea market. You can give your donated items to Frank Chow, Margie Mackey (604 506-4626), or one of the Fathers.

There will be several items auctioned this year by live auction, so the day promises to be a lot of fun for a very worthwhile cause!

Also, tickets for the Gaudete Sunday raffle are now on sale. Please pick up tickets sheets for yourself or to sell to friends. The raffle grand prize is a framed limited edition print called Golden Surf Seascape by Delta artist Fred Buchwitz. The other two prizes are a smaller framed print and a gift basket with a bottle of red wine, a bottle of white wine, a box of chocolates, a $150 gift card for Milestones or several other restaurants.
