Special announcement from Fr. Franco

Dear Holy Family parishioners,

At the end of June, after two wonderful years in Vancouver, I will be transferred to the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter apostolate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It was an honour and a privilege to work in this parish and get to know “all y’all.”

You will be receiving two new priests. Fr. Joseph Orlowski, FSSP (whom some of you already know), will be coming in the middle of July. Fr. Alexandre Marchand, FSSP, will come at the end of August.

Please keep me in your prayers as I keep you in mine.

In Christ through Mary,
Fr. Franco

Everyone is welcome to donate new or gently used items that are still in good condition (toys, household items, clothes, craft supplies, tools, etc., but no large furniture items, car seats, cribs, or electronics, please). Donations can be dropped off at Holy Family on Wednesdays after the 9 a.m. Mass or on Sundays after the 10:30 a.m. Mass. Pick-up can also be arranged.

We will also need volunteers to help sort the items as well as set up and clean up. Food donations are also welcome on the day of the garage sale.
