Clay’s Corner Episode #12: Back to School

How are you feeling heading into this school year? Excited? Nervous? Happy? Hopeful?

The return to school means something different for everyone, whether you’re a student, a teacher, or a parent (or some combo of all 3). This is a big year for our family, as Gail will be teaching Kayla in grade 4 and Jake is starting high school with his big brother Sean there to show him the ropes.

Clay’s Corner Episode #11: The Pat Down

Would you ever choose a human pat down over an automated scan?

I did just that on my way home from Calgary…and the male screener wasn’t very impressed.

After a somewhat stressful travel experience trying to make my way back to Calgary from New Jersey (in which the airlines lost my luggage), it was nice to have a more light-hearted moment on my way home to Vancouver.

Clay’s Corner Episode #9: How World Youth Day Changed My Life

Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims are gathering in Krakow, Poland for the World Youth Day celebrations starting this Tuesday.

In my new Clay’s Corner, I look back at my 2 World Youth Day experiences (Denver in 1993 and Toronto in 2002) and how they changed my life – especially with respect to my calling to youth and young adult ministry.

Let us pray for all the pilgrims of World Youth Day 2016!

Archdiocese of Vancouver #WYDChallenge (JP II Pastoral Staff)

The staff of the Archdiocese of Vancouver at the John Paul II Pastoral Centre got together to celebrate the pilgrims traveling to Krakow for World Youth Day.

Thanks to our friends at Salt + Light for the challenge. In turn, we challenge all Canadian pilgrims (and especially diocesan offices) to put together their own #WYDChallenge video!

More importantly, we pray for all pilgrims traveling to Poland for World Youth Day.
