Share Your Memories of St. Norbert's Parish Life

Bring to the office before 11th of March

Dear Parishioners,

in preparation for our photo directory and our Jubilee Gala on June 6, we would like to put together a "history of our parish in pictures". We would like to ask you to share any pictures you may have taken from 1968 and to this day, including past pastors (weddings, baptisms, communions, etc.), papal visit during World Youth Day, processions, church events held in the hall, retreats, photos of the exterior/interior of the church in the early years. We will carefully store your pictures and return them to you once we have scanned them.

Submit the pictures in an envelope with your name and phone number written on the front by 11th of March. Bring them to the office or drop them off in the box marked PHOTOS at the entrance of the Church prior to weekend Masses. You can also submit pictures by email, sending them to


The Call for Conscience 2018 Campaign

Sign-Up Sundays! February 24/25 & March 3/4. We Need Your Help!

The Call for Conscience 2018 Campaign is underway. Cardinal Collins and bishops across Ontario are asking for an email address from every Catholic family in their community, with a goal of 100,000 email addresses collected by the end of February 2018. This information will be used locally by Cardinal Collins and trusted faith partners to communicate periodically (approximately 6-8 times each year) on issues of particular importance for the Catholic community.

The first campaign of 2018 is the Call for Conscience, inviting our elected Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP's) and those seeking office this June to increase funding/access to palliative care, to protect health care workers wishing to abstain from any involvement in euthanasia/assisted suicide and to protect faith based facilities from participation in euthanasia/assisted suicide. The work builds on a similar campaign in 2017.

Please take a moment to provide your contact information at the back of the church on the weekends of February 24/25 and March 3/4.

Thank you for living a faith that acts!

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.
