Our Pie Sale and Loonie Auction were a great success, due once again to our community's generosity! Our famous turkey pies sold out in under 15 minutes and the rest of the baking was almost completely sold out within half an hour.
Thank you to everyone that donated their time to assist with making the turkey pies, their baking skills for the pies they donated, and for all of the wonderful items that we had available for the loonie auction.
Also, thank you to the citizens of Prince Rupert, for coming out and showing your support to our Church by purchasing pies, baking, and Loonie Auction tickets. Congratulations to everyone that won an item!
We greatly appreciate the support you are continuously able to offer us!

If you would like to donate pies for the sale, or have items you would like to donate towards the Loonie Auction, please let us know!
