Feb.4, 2023 Webinar Recording:
In a short period of time, the province of BC has been impacted by wildfires, flooding, snowstorms, and the destruction of homes, businesses, and key infrastructure as well as the loss of human life.
We want to help provide the tools and resources for parishes throughout the Ecclesiastical Province of BC and Yukon to prepare their churches for an emergency and to have a plan in place to be a practical resource (in addition to spiritual) for their surrounding community when a disaster strikes.
