Bad Joke Telling with Archbishop J. Michael Miller

While Archbishop Michael has a lot of serious responsibilities, I’m blessed to see his lighter side in working with him on a regular basis.

Thus, I was thrilled when he agreed to face off with me in a Bad Joke Telling contest.

See who prevails in this ultimate showdown.

Clay’s Corner Episode #14: It’s a Wedding, Not a Funeral

This past Saturday, my sister-in-law Julie Ann married Patrick in a beautiful wedding Mass at St. Paul’s Parish in Richmond, BC.

It’s just too bad I told everyone it was a funeral Mass.

In this anniversary edition of Clay’s Corner, I walk through what I was thinking – and what I wasn’t thinking – as I made the silly mistake.

Kids Bowl Free all Summer at Lucky 9 Lanes in Richmond

Our family loves bowling.

That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one given how often the boys and I are at the bowling alley.   Sean has been working at Richmond’s Lucky 9 Lanes (formerly The Zone) for the past 6 months, so he’s there two or three times a week.

I’ve been blessed to speak to 4 different audiences in the past week: an elementary school leadership day, a Confirmation retreat, a grade 11 retreat, and a Reverence 4 Life mini-conference. While it has made for a couple of late nights (both in preparation and catching up on work), it has certainly been worth it. Continue reading Trust

Try out Find and Seek’s Brand New Room

They say that good things come to those who wait.

In the case of Find and Seek – Vancouver’s critically acclaimed puzzle adventure escape room experience – the 18-month wait for their new second room was well worth it.

So with eager anticipation, I took my all-star crew of sleuths to try to solve The Curse of Madame Zita’s Curiosities.  And we were not disappointed.
