Meals for the Family P.


So, mommy, daddy and Zeke need some meals! I will be taking them some food tomorrow, but I need some more volunteers for a couple of weeks...

Please e-mail me at or call/text me at 604-897-8847 as soon as possible to let me know what days you are available. E-mail would be better for me since I can't have my cell phone with me at work, but I can respond to e-mails. I will, however, check my cell occasionally on my breaks.

Thanks in advance!!


CHRISTMAS at St. Herman's-- NOTE special times!

Wed. Dec. 21 7 pm:   Vespers and CONFESSIONS. 

Sat. Dec. 24   6PM   CHRISTMAS EVE VIGIL: 

** Note: if you have not yet made your Advent confession and cannot come Wednesday Dec. 21 after vespers, please arrange to see Fr. Lawrence before Christmas Eve vigil on Saturday night.

If there is no other alternative, Fr. Lawrence will hear confessions after the Christmas Eve vigil but not on Christmas morning before liturgy.


NO coffee hour after liturgy at church, but see Eileen if you want to pop by a Christmas brunch with fellow members in Langley, or Rhiannon for the same in Surrey.

Fri. Dec. 30th  1PM to lateish in the evening..... Fr. Lawrence & I want to invite all of you to drop by our Open House.

Prayers and Christmas wishes to those who must travel out of town to visit family at this time. See the rest of you at church!

St. Herman's North Star Post Office is OPEN!


  • Address clearly to your fellow members
  • place in the post box in the library
  • they will be sorted for delivery by me, and delivered at coffee hour with help from anyone willing
  • I originally said the delivery would be Sunday the 18th, but so far there are no cards! So I'm thinking the delivery will be Christmas eve and Christmas day. 
  • Any donations you would like to make can just be put in the box along with the cards. This will go to the building funds. Donation is not necessary to have your cards delivered.

Blog problems

I'm trying to get Fr. Richard signed up with permissions/author status, but he isn't receiving the e-mail from Blogger. And now all the other authors have vanished from the settings page (behind the scenes, as it were).

I've posted a question on the blogger forums, but meanwhile if you are an author, will you try to sign in to the blog and let me know in the comments on this post if you are able to get access or not?
