WCCCLC 09

WCCCLC 2009 has come to an end, and it was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who participated, and those who couldn't make it but helped out and prayed for us. To continue on with the WCCCLC spirit, we will be having a post-camp meeting on Sunday, September 20 from 1:30-3:30pm at Canadian Martyrs Catholic Church (5771 Granville Ave., Richmond). We are planning to re-live some of the moments of the camp, and give everyone a chance to meet back together. We will also give you some detail about discerning to God in helping out with next year's camp, so make sure you don't miss it. For those who could not attend this year's camp, you are welcome to come to the post-camp as well to meet our campers and learn about the things we did at camp!

Updates

A couple of months ago, the helpers of WCCCLC 2009 have raised about $1300 through YOUR help and support with 加Fun日(Ga Fun Day). Thank you to all who participated! Our fun fair was a huge success! All proceeds would go towards WCCCLC fundraising, which is needed to make this spiritual annual living camp more affordable for our campers, to cover the transportation and accommodation for our Father speaker, to maintain our website and to cover many other administrative expenses.

We would like to specially thanks Fr. Chu, Photon Distributions, WCCCLC 2009 Support Team and all the nice aunties who have helped us cooking and sewing!

If you have missed the fun that day, you still have a chance! Register for WCCCLC 2009 and feel our spirit! For more information, please visit our registration booths at Canadian Martyrs Church, Saint Francis Xavier and Corpus Christ. You may also register on our website at www.wccclc.net.

WCCCLC Fundraiser

To commemorate the twelve previous years of WCCCLC, we have created a special full-colour calendar booklet, which contains daily readings and photos from the past years. If you're a camper from one of our previous twelve camps, you might be able to find a picture of you inside the calendar. Each calendar costs just $10, and only 100 were printed, so get your copy while they last!

In addition, to meet the incredible demands, we will be continuing our sales of the self-made Chinese New Year ornaments at the three parishes this weekend. The calendars will be sold alongside the ornaments.

Thank you for your continued support of WCCCLC.

  • Corpus Christi Church

WCCCLC Fundraiser

The Western Canada Chinese Catholic Living Camp (WCCCLC) is holding a fundraising event after each Cantonese mass for the following two weeks in order to raise funds for this year’s camp fee. To celebrate the Chinese New Year, we are selling self-made ornaments, another way to wish everyone a prosperous Year of the Ox. In addition, to commemorate the twelve previous years of WCCCLC, we have created a special calendar booklet, which contains daily readings and photos from the past years. We hope to gather support from the parish. If you are interested or have inquiries about our camp, please visit one of our representatives stationed at a booth in the church lobby.
