Today being the Feast of Corpus Christi, it’s a good time to invite everyone to shed some blood and save a life at the Blood Donor Clinic this coming Friday. Book your appointment online at www.blood.ca.
Please take time on Saturday morning to help out with the setup for Pancake Breakfast, which happens a week earlier to allow the Dads to enjoy some pampering on their special day.
And on Saturday night, we get to pamper some special “Fathers” – Fr. Luterbach, our Chaplain, and Fr. Nick, who will be leaving us for Rome next month – along with Sr. Maureen Theresa and Sr. Mary John Paul: a sit-down dinner at the Mayfair Golf and Country Club as a small token of thanksgiving for their service to our Parish and our Lord throughout the past year. Please let me know by Monday June 8 if you would like to join us. Spouses very welcome.
Our First Degree Exemplification for June has been moved one day in order to accommodate the Retirement Party and 60th Anniversary of Ordination of Rev. Vincent Hawkswell, who is the Faithful Friar of the Fourth Degree. There will be a Mass at 5pm followed by a reception at St. Patrick Church in Vancouver.
So please bring your First Degree candidates for exemplification on Tuesday June 30 at the Parish Centre. This is the final one for this fraternal year, so let’s make a best effort to finish the year on a high note.
See you at the General Meeting tomorrow night and at the Pancake Breakfast next Sunday!

“When we eat food, that food is digested and becomes a part of our body. With the Eucharist, it is just the opposite. The Eucharist is food which transforms us into itself.” — Fr. Nick Meisl
