Altar Servers Day
At 7:30am on June 13th, 27 Altar Servers attended Mass celebrated by Father Steny Mascarenhas, (at that time, Assistant Pastor of St. Edmund's Parish, North Vancouver, BC). Father Steny and the group then boarded a bus and headed towards Westminster Abbey, Mission, BC.

Members of the Benedictine Community lead the Servers on a tour of the beautiful buildings and grounds of the Monastery. Abbot John Braganza, OSB spoke to the group about the importance of reverence when serving in Church.

Back on the bus, they headed for St. Anthony of Padua, Agassiz, BC (Father Steny's new Parish) where they enjoyed some games on the lawn and, after Grace, ate a delicious lunch. A quick side trip to Harrison Hot Springs (a popular holiday site) was followed by a short visit to the new Carmelite Formation House located in Deroche, BC.

The happy group arrived back at St. Edmund's Parish on time and grateful to everyone who had made the day so memorable. They were also happy to each have a t-shirt especially made to commemorate the outing.
