Annual Western Liturgical Conference

The Diocese of Nelson is hosting the Annual Western Liturgical Conference at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in West Kelowna. This is an incredible opportunity for our priests and parish representatives to receive further training in liturgy. The actual workshop begins on Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. on October 25th and finishes around 4:30 p.m. the next day (followed by the 5 p.m. Mass). The Pilgrimage of Faith will cover one third of the cost (application for this reimbursement should be made by the parish, with applicable receipts attached). Please be advised that the Holiday Inn in West Kelowna will hold a block of rooms until September 24th. Registration form can be found at the
Parish Office.
