  • Month of Holy Rosary

    The Marian Month of May
    During the month of May, let us honor Mary:  may our devotion to her lead us to love and serve God joyfully.  We can let go of grudging, reluctant duty; remembering instead our loving God and Mary our Mother.  Then, may there be springtime in our souls and Mary’s own Maytime in our hearts.

  • Vocations

    From the Vocations Director
    What could convince someone to turn to God?  The story that God became human?  The story that Jesus cured the sick?  The story that Jesus forgave sin?  The story that Jesus rose from the dead?  Or, perhaps the story of the witness of your own life!  If you have the continuing inclination that God is calling you to be a priest, religious or deacon, call Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocations Director, Archdiocese of Toronto 416 968 0997 or email vocations@archtoronto.org .
