Near the close of this Year of Faith, 800 Catholics opened wide the doors to charity and fellowship during the second annual Archbishop's Dinner. Funds raised at this year's social event will support the Door is Open, a drop-in centre in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.

That thought came to Bormes, author of the new book The Catechism of Hockey, about five years ago while lying in bed awaiting the first of four shoulder surgeries. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
