Archdiocesan employees gathered in the rain Aug. 29 to watch the archbishop break the ground of the construction site for the new pastoral centre.

The centre will include offices, a chapel, meeting rooms, and housing for retired priests.

Russ Hallam, the construction company's project superintendent, is enthusiastic about the project. "I've never worked with the Catholic Church before. I am excited to meet the people who will be using the building," he told The B.C. Catholic.
