    • On Sunday, October 19th we resume our Liturgy of the Word for Children held at the 9:00 am Mass. At the beginning of the Mass, the celebrant will call all the children to the front of the church. Our wonderful volunteer catechists headed by Anita Jakovcic will bring them to the Church Hall. They will be presenting to the children the Gospel of the Sunday in a manner suited to their age group. As the homily in the main church finishes, they also wind up their discussions and bring the children back to rejoin their parents. We welcome all children presently in Kindergarten up to Grade 5 to participate in this very interesting program especially prepared for their age group!

    • He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying; and they stayed with Him that day, for it was about the tenth hour”(John 1:39) Many Catholic men at least consider the possibility of becoming a priest but leave it there because of so many questions and the mystery surrounding this vocation. If this is the case for you, the Come and See Weekend might be the answer. This weekend retreat is an invitation for all men who feel the need to cultivate a deeper prayer life and relationship with Jesus Christ; which also leads to a better discernment of God’s call for their lives. Date: October 31 – Nov 2, 2014 Where: St. Augustine’s Seminary Contact: Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocation Director Archdiocese of Toronto 416 968 0997 vocations@archtoronto.org
  • Month of Holy Rosary

    Pope Benedict wrote:
    “…Together we confirm that the Holy rosary is not a pious practice banished to the past, like prayers of other times thought of with nostalgia.  Instead, the Rosary is experiencing a new Springtime.  Without a doubt, this is one of the most eloquent signs of love that the young generation nourish for Jesus and His mother, Mary.  In the current world, so dispersive, this prayer helps to put Christ at the centre, as the Virgin did, who meditated within all that was said about her Son, and also, what He did and said.  When reciting the Rosary, the important and meaningful moments of salvation history are relived.  The various steps of Christ’s mission are traced.  With Mary, the heart is oriented toward the mystery of Jesus.  Christ is put at the centre of our life, of our time, of our city, through the contemplation and meditation of His holy mysteries of joy, light, sorrow and glory….”

  • Bereavement Ministry


    What is Grief?

    Grief – is the thoughts and feelings that are experienced within oneself upon the death of a loved one.  Grief is the internal meaning given to the experience of bereavement.

    Mourning – is taking the internal feelings and thoughts of grief and expressing it outside of oneself.

    We all grieve at the loss of our loved one.  But it is only when we mourn our loss that we move forward in healing and wholeness.

    Bereavement group sessions are available.  If you have experienced the loss of a loved one recently or in the past years and would like some information, please contact Linda Wisz 416 620 7662
