Rev. Shannon Tennant, Pastor of Shiloh-Sixth Avenue Untied Church is asking for our help. The New Westminster Food Bank works out of Sixth Ave. United Church at 12th St. The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society operates the Food Bank. Instead of being open two days a week, it is now open for only one day. This has caused longer line ups as well as difficulties for users due to work schedules, mental health issues and other problems. Pastor Tennant is asking New Westminster residents to write to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society at 1150 Raymur Avenue, Vancouver BC, V6A 3T2 requesting a return to the two day weekly schedule for the good of the people who need the New Westminster Food Bank.

BC CATHOLIC COLLECTION – Saturday/Sunday, February 2/3: Parishes will be taking a collection next weekend – Feb. 2/3. The BC Catholic Collection is held once a year to help the parishes mail The B.C. Catholic weekly newspaper to parishioners homes. The collection is a way you can help reduce the parish’s expenses, since every penny goes directly to the parish to offset the mailing costs. On Feb. 2/3, please use the special BC Catholic Collection envelope in your envelope set to make a donation.

We will celebrate The Sacrament of the Anointing of the sick at all next weekend Masses, Feb. 2 and 3. All whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age may receive this sacrament. The sacrament may be repeated if the sick person recovers after being anointed and then falls ill or if during the same illness the person’s condition becomes more serious. A sick person may be anointed before surgery. Elderly people may be anointed if they become weakened even though there is no serious illness. Sick children who have made their first communion may be anointed. The celebration of the sacrament consists of anointing on the forehead and hands along with the prayer, “Through this holy anointing may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up”.
