IPC Canada Photo Services will be taking professional photographs of all our parishioners beginning in September.

We invite all of you to participate in having your photos taken as you are part of our Church community and family!

Father Miguel already had his photos taken and he would appreciate the gift to see all of you in the Souvenir Book.

IPC Photo Services books a 30-minute photoshoot session per family.

They will be in the church basement.

During the session, you can have many photos taken: individual, couples, or family

For photoshoot Dates and Times in October, please contact the parish office.

 

Right after the session you will be able to choose:

  • The free printed 8”x10” photo you would like

  • Have the opportunity to order more photos at a reduced cost

  • You will receive a free 75th Anniversary Booklet when it is printed!

How do you book your photoshoot session?

  • After the Masses, there will be volunteers who can assist you to book your session.

How can you help?

We will need volunteers to help greet families when they arrive for the photoshoots and assist where needed.  Please call the office if you would like to help out during the actual photoshoot period.  Please see the dates and time below.
