3rd Sunday of Easter

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.

    The 2015 ShareLife Campaign

    Working wonders for the Family of Faith campaign...

    Our Pope has described charity as "the true force that changes the world." This statement is definitely true when we talk about ShareLife, the primary charitable appeal of our Archdiocese. Through our active involvement in ShareLife, we reach out to some of the most vulnerable, marginalized and needy people in our midst. We also help our neighbours, friends and fellow parishioners as they work through difficult times. In our region, we have the chance to exercise Catholic charity in a true meaningful way. Please consider supporting ShareLife, the annual fundraising appeal of our Archdiocese, during this Lenten season.

    Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto
    This year, Catholics across our archdiocese are being asked to support the Family of Faith campaign.

    This campaign will provide for the pastoral and temporal needs of the archdiocese, such as campus and youth ministry, communication initiatives that will strengthen our family of faith, and support to help new parishes to celebrate Mass in a new church.

    The ShareLife campaign provides for the needs of our social service agencies, helps our brothers and sisters in Christ across the world, and supports the education of our clergy. There is no duplication – ShareLife agencies do not receive funding from the Family of Faith campaign. Thus it is important that we continue to support the ShareLife appeal, to provide for the needs of the marginalized both here in our communities and around the world.

    Next Sunday – May 3, 2015 - is ShareLife Sunday

    Please give generously.

    You can work WONDERS!
