Local parish serves up the Lord

Maple Ridge 'Discovering Christ' over dinner
Special to The B.C. Catholic Participants suggested discussion time be prolonged in future sessions, but they didn't say no to the meals prepared by parish volunteers.
In a Special to The B.C. Catholic, Pat Byrne Casey tells of Maple Ridge's evangelistic efforts:

St. Luke's Parish in Maple Ridge recently invited 8,200 people - give or take a few thousand - to dinner, and then planned to do the same again starting Jan. 16.

That number, says a media release from their office, represents the one-fifth of the local population who are lapsed Catholics.

"Those of us who live our faith take great comfort in it," said Vernon Robertson, a parishioner and the organizer of the event, a "full meal deal" entitled "Discovering Christ."
