New Precious Blood Parish Website


On this memorial of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, a saint who used modern means to spread the Gospel, I am glad to announce the launching of our new Precious Blood Parish website:

The summer break allowed me to spend time to organize and to build this site with the help of a professional. Developing a site was a good experience for me as Pastor of Precious Blood. It allowed me to have an overview of all areas of the parish, and to put my mind into them.

Please pray that this website will help to welcome people into our community.

Prayer Groups Day Trip

On August 5, Feast of Our Lady of the Snow, I led members of my English prayer groups (around 40 people) on a day trip from Cloverdale to Mission.

We began with the 9 am Mass @ Precious Blood, followed by the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary at the Rosary Garden in the parish.


We then drove to Heritage Park in Mission for lunch.



Some of us had picnic & badminton

We prayed the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary outside the Grotto of Our Lady and a Litany at the Oblates cemetery.



At around 2:15 pm, we joined the Poor Clare Nuns for Mid-Afternoon Prayer at their monastery.


Then we went inside the Grotto of Our Lady to pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary.

We then pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy @ the Abbey Church.


We explored the Abbey ground.

I gave Mary Help of Christians Blessing @ the small grotto.


We followed the cows….


…..and we met Father Abbot (the one on the right), who was working.


After walking from the cemetery to the seminary, some of us rested under the shade while waiting for Evening Prayer @ Abbey church.



After Evening Prayer, more then 30 of us ate dinner at a Japanese restaurant in Abbotsford.

It was a joyful and prayerful day for us.  

Summer Time

Summer time @ Precious Blood is much more quiet. There was Vacation Bible School on the week of July 15.
