Gaudete Sunday raffle and silent auction

Gaudete Sunday falls on December 14 this year, and once again the Vancouver Traditional Mass Society is requesting donations of new or as-new items for our annual silent auction. Lightly used items are requested as this is not a flea market. You can give your donated items to Margie Mackey (604 506-4626) or one of the Fathers. There will be several items auctioned by live auction, so the day promises to be a lot of fun for a very worthwhile cause!

Tickets for the Gaudete Sunday raffle will be available before and after the Sunday Masses during the coming weeks. Please pick up several sheets to sell to friends.

The raffle first prize will be a framed limited edition print (with certificate) titled Caught by Light, by Penticton-based artist Terry Isaac (donated by Artimage Gallery, Vancouver; 37.75 x 29 in; approximately $1,200 value). Second prize will be a gift basket with a box of chocolates, two bottles of wine, and a $150 restaurant gift card.

All funds raised from the auction and raffle will go to the support of Canadian seminarians at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary.

Gaudete Sunday talent show

Can you sing? Play an instrument? Whistle or recite poetry? Please participate in our Gaudete Sunday talent show on Sunday, December 14, after the High Mass. To sign up or for more information, please contact Fr. Geddes.
