Greetings Chapel Friends,
This Fall has been exciting at the Chapel, with YVR Airport Authority hosting a very enjoyable Open House to introduce airport employees to our services. Over 150 employees from various organizations dropped by and some of our Richmond supporters came as well. Much thanks to Drew Pankrath and his team for organizing and promoting that event!
Now we are geared up for our Annual December Drop-In, where all YVR employees are invited to come and enjoy hot apple cider and goodies. Those dates are Dec. 11-22, and this year our theme is 'Pause... for Peace' as our world is in great need of seeking peace. Guests will be invited to write a short wish or prayer for peace and place it on a world map, so that we together can express our YVR Community desire for peace in our hearts and in this world.
As for our Chapel Team, we are appreciating half a dozen new volunteers joining our regular group of dedicated hosts and chaplains. We also welcomed Fr. Mark Bautista and Deacon Wilfred Victoria to the Sunday Roman Catholic leadership. YVR Airport Authority has increased their support for our services this Fall and we are finalizing a new 5 Year Partnership/funding Agreement that will begin on Jan. 1, 2024. More on that great news later.
OK, that's the current story at the YVR Chapel. We appreciate your prayers and support!
May God bless you all in this beautiful Christmas and Hanukkah season,
