For much of 2018, diocesan communications have been promoting the Topic 50th Anniversary commemorative publication planned to go to print in the fall of 2019, hopefully in plenty of time for the actual Topic 50th Anniversary, February 2020.

In order to assist with the costs connected to publication and distribution, a fund has been established and we invite you to consider making a gift to help with the project. Financial gifts can be made online using credit cards via the diocesan website by clicking on one of the “GIVE” buttons found in the header and footer of each page of the site, and selecting Topic 50th Anniversary, or by clicking this link to the diocesan website's GIVE page.

You may also send a cheque by mail or drop one off made out to the Diocese of New Westminster with the words “Topic 50th Anniversary” in the memo line.
