The Grey Cup runneth over

Holy Grail comes to Fraser Valley Parish

Members of St. Ann's Parish in Abbotsford got a chance to touch a holy grail of sorts in early January. It was not a religious chalice, but rather the holy grail of Canadian football: the Grey Cup.

Parishioner Dan Dorazio, the offensive line coach of the 2011 champion B.C. Lions, took the Grey Cup to the parish centre for two hours. A steady stream of fans came to see the gleaming trophy and enjoy a light lunch.

"Everyone on the winning team gets to have a turn with the Grey Cup," explained Dorazio, who was born and grew up in Pennsylvania. "I've been a parishioner here all nine years we've been in B.C. so I wanted to share it with the community of St. Ann's."
