Faith in Action – C#5423 – Burnaby – June 1, 2019

On Saturday June 1, the Knights of Columbus of Holy Cross Parish will march or ride in Burnaby’s Superheroes-themed Hats Off Day Parade 2019 with “The Triumph of the Cross Over Sin and Death”, a float of their own
design and construction.

At last year’s event, themed “Pirates and Sailors”, this same group’s “Santa Maria” entry won the “Best in Parade” trophy out of 50 participants. Since 2005, Hats Off Day has been consistently voted Burnaby’s most popular festival, filling the Burnaby Heights stretch of Hastings Street with merrymakers from near and far.

Knights of Holy Cross Council 5423 and Msgr Carey Assembly 2726, and all other Councils and Assemblies, both in Colour Guard or informal dress, are invited to gather by 9:20 am at Parade Position #15 on Hastings at Gamma near Willingdon; the parade will start soon after, and finish at Boundary Road. Seniors and others may ride in chairs on the spacious flatbed trailer-float, accessible by ramp; Knights families may also join. Props and garb illustrating various Knights projects and activities will be provided, or bring your own. Parking will be available on surrounding residential streets as first-come first-served (please obey all street signs). Participation or viewing are free.

The Knights of Columbus is an international organization of Catholic men in service to church and community; Council 5423 is based at Holy Cross Parish in northwest Burnaby: http://holycross.rcav.org/parish-groups/knights-of-columbus/. We also thank Kia West and the staff and students of Holy Cross Elementary School for helping to make this project possible.
