Spirit Day is designed to celebrate the Grade Seven students of our Archdiocese and has grown tremendously since the inaugural event in February 2005. This event will get participants excited about receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, and awaken the Holy Spirit in young and old alike. The day will include sessions, testimonies, games, music, skits, prayer, food, and Mass. Spirit Day will once again be offered on two separate days. Thus, school and parish groups will have the option of attending either Saturday, November 4 from 1:00pm – 9:00pm OR Sunday, November 5 from 10:00am – 6:00pm at Chandos Pattison Auditorium at Pacific Academy in Surrey.
HUMBLED BY GREATNESS – God is the great “I Am”; at Spirit Day we will discover that we are all called to greatness.
APeX is two Catholic men (Brad Farmer and Gene Monterastelli) who have made it their lives’ work since 1996 to criss-cross North America sharing the Truth and Joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They have crafted a unique style (they call it “Christian Vaudeville”) that engages an audience and creates rapport through death-defying juggling, sketch comedy, and personal testimony. In other words, they are evangelists, they throw things at each other, and they are funny.
