Diocesan and Community news and events:


Shredding for a Cure on April 22, 10am - 12pm at St. Clement’s

We are thrilled to invite you to our Keep on Swimming fundraiser this year. Ashley died on April 22nd and each year we try to do something to remember her. This year it is a Saturday and it felt right to do some fundraising for her cause. It is a shredding event donated by our amazing friends Tino and Shelby Fluckiger (1-800-Shredding)

Time to save up those things you have been meaning to clean out and bring them to St Clement's Church parking lot 3400 Institute in North Vancouver where Tino's amazing shredding truck will shred them in only a few minutes. The church is located on the street behind Lynn Valley school and on the other side of Lynn Valley Park. 

Please tell your friends about this.  It is a chance to clean out your paper and contribute to cancer research  for  Ovarian cancer or to Callanish ( with your donation to the cause.

Email us at or phone 604 980 3177 if you have questions or ideas of how to promote this event.
