Catholic After Hours presents ‘The Tonight Show with Fr. James’


Vancouver is a large, diverse city. What tensions exist between balancing faith, career, and social endeavours for young Catholics these days? What issues are important to young adults these days and how does it all come together for them?  Find out on Monday, Feb. 29, from 6:15pm to 8:30pm at the Art Gallery Cafe, downtown Vancouver (entrance on Robson Street). Fr. James, pastor at St. Patrick’s Parish, puts the spotlight on four interesting young Catholic professionals:

  • Makani Marquis who lived as a hermit for several years but later felt a calling to marriage, to Lisa.
  • Lisa Marquis who races in triathlons, teaches PREP in her spare time and works at the Archdiocese of Vancouver.
  • Jeremy Keong coordinates Campus Ministry at a Catholic high school on the North Shore and keeps an active blog on his favourite issues.
  • Erin McDougall is a recent convert to Catholicism and is a special education assistant at an elementary school on the North Shore and is discerning her vocation.
