Is the Church really Catholic?
Yes. We are fully Catholic

– While fully Catholic and in Communion with the Roman Catholic Church, we follow the Byzantine Eastern Christian Tradition.
Children are children and as such vivacious & full of life. They are welcome to feel at home in Church, since, after all, the Church is their heavenly Father’s house. Moderate amounts of noise & play are part of their presence at worship. We adults should help them to participate & pray as they are able and at their level. Jesus said: “Let the little children come unto me….” (Mk 10:14)
We are a parish of the Eparchy of New Westminster in the UGCC (http://nweparchy.ca/).
We Welcome Visitors!
