St. Andrew's Cathedral is offering a 12-week course (Alpha) in which we will be exploring questions about life and faith.  The purpose of Alpha is to help those in attendance (through food, fellowship and formation) have an encounter with Jesus Christ in a community of friendship.  This is a great  course for those who have never really gone more deeply into their faith or also a great course to invite a friend to who has expressed interest in these questions.  To find out more information about our next session, please contact the parish office at 250-388-5571 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

For Young Adults

Are you between the ages of 24 - 36?  Then you're perfect for our Young Adults Group.  Following the 5 pm Sunday Mass, we will meet each week in the parish centre for food, discussion and fellowship.  Our topics will be many and varied, but our primary purpose is to create a space for young adults of the Cathedral parish to make lasting friendships with other Catholics.
