Join us at Sts. Joachim and Ann in Aldergrove on Tuesday, October 31, for our second annual All Hallow’s Eve costume party! Come dressed up as your favourite saint; adults are welcome to dress up too.

The evening will begin with Solemn Vespers of All Saints at 5 p.m., followed by the party. The party will feature the always popular “trunk or treat” (weather permitting, this portion will be outdoors; if it looks drizzly, bring an umbrella!) – please bring a bag of candy to distribute from your “trunk,” so that the kids can have a chance to show off their costumes by walking from “trunk to trunk” to plead treats. New this year: decorate your trunk to enter the trunk decorating contest!

Afterwards, there will be goodies and pizza inside (please bring $2 per person, maximum of $10 per family, for pizza if you would like to partake), games for the kids, and a prize for best costume (to be judged by one of the priests). During the party, there will be Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament available (a sign-up sheet will be posted in Sts. Joachim and Ann vestibule at the party). The evening will conclude at 7:30 p.m. with Benediction.

So that we have an idea of how much pizza to bring, RSVP by emailing Sarah Bjorgaard at or calling Sts. Joachim and Ann parish office at 604-857-1944.
