Bishop William McGratten and Bishop Emeritus Henry and many clergies from Diocese of Calgary were the honorable guests with totally over 450 parishioners crowded together celebrating the new year of PIG at the OLPH Church-Chinese New Year Banquet on Sunday, February 10, 2019.

This annual dinner started with the traditional lion dance (by Jing Wo Cultural Association); followed the National Anthem led by Scouts 300.  Bishop William said the grace; all of us enjoyed the 10-course of food, fruit and desserts.  Of course, the table prize, lucky draws and the entertainments highlighted the celebration of the Chinese New Year.
