Archdiocese of Vancouver welcomes Olympic visitors

Our doors are open, and the visitors are dropping in. The Archdiocese of Vancouver has opened its doors at 150 Robson St. (corner of Cambie, and right across from B.C. Place) and is greeting Catholics and non-Catholics from around the world, as well as right next door. Stop in at our Welcome Centre to say hi, sign your name on our wall-sized map of the world, pick up a copy of The B.C. Catholic's special Olympic issue, have a warm beverage, check your e-mail, and, of course, visit the chapel and say a prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Doors are open noon till 10 p.m. every day. The Welcome Centre opened Saturday and was blessed by Archbishop J. Michael Miller. You can view video of the blessing here (you'll have to indulge Office of Youth Ministry Director Clayton Imoo who provides a couple of minutes of Youth Ministry hi-jinx first.)
