If we really believe in something, it does not seem to be a sacrifice to give up everything else to pursue that new dream. Jesus asks the same as any great dedication; but He promises rewards no one else can promise. "You will have treasure in Heaven, then come, follow Me." Come, follow the call of Christ as a priest, sister, brother or deacon.

If you think God is calling you to one of these, call Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocation Director, Archdiocese of Toronto 416-968-0997, email,

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.

From the Pastor's Desk
Cari parrocchiani/ Dear Parishioners,

St. Norbert's Parish Pastoral Council for 2015-16 was installed during the Holy Mass on September 30, 2015, 7.00 PM and convened its first meeting thereafter. A Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body which works with the Pastor regarding all matters pertaining to the pastoral life of the parish. The PPC involves priests and people in common study and resolution of the pastoral needs of the parish in order to facilitate pastoral planning for the parish, in accord with the universal and particular law of the Church.

II Consiglio Pastorale Parrocchiale è un organo di comunione che, come immagine della Chiesa, esprime e realizza la corresponsabilità dei fedeli (presbiteri, diaconi, consacrati e laici) alla missione della Chiesa, a livello di comunità cristiana parrocchiale. È il luogo dove i fedeli, soprattutto i laici, possono esercitare il diritto dovere loro proprio, di esprimere il proprio pensiero ai pastori e comunicarlo anche agli altri fedeli, circa il bene della comunità cristiana parrocchiale : in tal modo esercitano nella Chiesa la missione regale di Cristo di cui sono stati fatti partecipi con i sacramenti del Battesimo e della Confermazione. La funzione principale del CPP sta pertanto nel ricercare, studiare e proporre conclusioni pratiche in ordine alle iniziative pastorali che riguardano la parrocchia.

All best wishes and prayers.
Fr. Gigi Philip

Humanitarian Relief – Project Hope
In response to the global refugee crisis, Cardinal Thomas Collins has launched "Project Hope", a special emergency appeal.

This 100-day campaign aims to raise $3 million in order to settle 100 refugee families in the Archdiocese of Toronto as soon as possible. The effort will also require 100 volunteer committees to assist with settlement services.

To make a donation to support the appeal, visit: or call (416) 934-3411.

You can also donate through our parish with a cheque made payable to ST. NORBERT PARISH – PROJECT HOPE – REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP.

We continue to pray for all those suffering, mindful of our call to welcome the stranger in our midst. Those interested in assisting with volunteer committees should contact the Office for Refugees at (647) 780-0827
