  • HOLY COMMUNION

    Livestreaming of Saturday Masses will continue for those who wish to participate virtually.  See the Events page for the scheduled times. You are invited to say the following prayer while watching our live-streaming services:

    My Jesus, 
    I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
    I love You above all things, 
    and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
    Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, 
    come at least spiritually into my heart. 
    I embrace You as if You were already there
    and unite myself wholly to You. 
    Never permit me to be separated from You.

    Amen.

  • ANOINTING OF THE SICK

    In an emergency call 250-889-3761 at any time for the Catholic Hospital Chaplain on duty.


    Parishioners admitted to hospital should advise the Admitting Clerk that they are Catholics and would like the hospital visitors to be advised of their admittance. This will ensure that they are visited and can receive Holy Communion or arrange for the administration of the Sacrament of the Sick.
