22.DecSto. Nino Novena Nights & Fiesta Reminder

Dear Members:
Wishing you all belated blessed Christmastime & an early Happy New Year!
On behalf of the BOD, please be guided, that our annual Sto. Nino Novena devotion this year of 2009, will be starting early & will be @ a different venue then what has been our Gimilami “home” for many, many, many years.
Our Novena starts this coming New Year’s DAY in the evening time @ 7pm sharp. Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Burnaby/New Westminster, has graciously offered their Church for our nightly devotion to our Sto. Nino.

7455 – 10th Avenue
Burnaby, BC

We will be here everynight from Thu. Jan 1-9th.

The Fiesta will be on Sat. Jan 10th @ Scottish Cultural Centre, in Vancouver, as usual.
