Christmas Giving Tree - Volunteers Needed

Come out and help us organize and wrap the gifts we collect for the Christmas Giving Tree. We need help on the following days Dec 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18. The exact time will be determined once we have a group of volunteers. If you would like to help us- please contact the church office and leave your name and number or call Diana at 416 633 0088. Thank you for supporting us.

Pray for Vocations

Could God be calling you to be a priest, deacon, brother or sister in order to help our world of today to truly "prepare the way of the Lord"?

If you think God is calling you to be a priest, religious or deacon, contact Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocation Director, Archdiocese of Toronto 416-968-0997, email,


Parishioners are welcome to help us decorate the altar during the Christmas season by bringing in RED OR WHITE POINSETTIAS or you can offer money to buy them.

Thank you for your generosity!


Se vuoi aiutare nelle decorazioni della Chiesa per Natale, puoi farlo portando poinsettias di colore rosso o bianco o offrendo soldi per poinsettias. Grazie


The Knights of Columbus have commenced their annual sale of Pannettone. Sales will be held in the Parish Hall after all Masses.

The cost is $6 per cake; or $65 for a case of twelve.

Get them while supplies last.

Welcome to our Parish

"By this everyone will know you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." - John 13.33
Our vision of faith is one of growing love and harmony combined with invitation to others. Guided by the Holy Spirit, this Parish wishes to appreciate our unique heritage and our multicultural base, using both to live and express Catholic values, and to promote loving unity while respecting diversity. Our goal is to accomplish these things in such a way that our life here proclaims the Lord Jesus for all to see.
