Are you new here?Newcomer's LuncheonBack to Worship Main Page

The Newcomer’s Luncheon is a project initiated by the former rector The Rev. Jessica Schaap to get to know the new people in the parish in an informal setting.

You will enjoy a simple relaxing meal with our rector, The Rev. Philip Cochrane, our wardens in a parishioner’s place. Our way of saying

“Welcome to St. Paul’s”.

 The first luncheon was held on May 22, 2016 at 1pm.

The next newcomer’s lunch : 23 June 2019.

If you are new to St. Paul’s and want to join our simple lunch, please contact our rector, The Rev. Philip Cochrane or Maria Hizon of the church office at 604.685.6832 ext 10 or email at office(AT) , any of our wardens – Drina Read and/or James Roberts or Dorothy Barnes.

Here are some photo highlights during our past newcomer’s luncheon.
