Our KofC Council 9846 participated at the Annual Our Lady of Lourdes Pilgrimage in Mission last August 19, 2017 (Saturday) both as part of the working team and as pilgrims. We attended the Holy Eucharist Celebration with Bishop Emeritus of Kamloops David Monroe as celebrant. After Mass, we joined the procession to the Grotto where the Rosary was offered followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
It was great to see Fr. Joseph Nguyen, former pastor of St. Joseph (Port Moody), now pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Mission. We helped out in this Pilgrimage from set up to take down as well as directing traffic at the parking lot (this was a fantastic job putting vehicles into order), and transporting hundreds of water bottles to and from the pilgrimage.
