Mission Ablaze



Mission statement: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing.” – Luke 12:49.  Mission Ablaze is not just another prayer meeting. It meets every Tuesday evening from 7:30-9:30pm in the Church basement to praise and worship the Lord, to listen to teachings from the priests and core group, to share the Scriptures through the various sanctifying and charismatic gifts of the Holy Spirit, and to receive healing prayer ministry.  But Mission Ablaze is also and more significantly an action prayer group, a pastoral group that prays for evangelization in our parish and archdiocese and seek direction and motivation from the Lord.  Mission Ablaze core group or the leaders group – is mandated by the pastors and with the pastors to initiate and organize evangelization activities, faith education workshops and conferences, community building events and fundraising for the needy.  These initiatives provide avenues for participants to discover their gifts and use them to accomplish God’s will and build up God’s Kingdom.  All Catholics and God’s seekers from the Archdiocese of Vancouver are welcome.
