If you know anyone who might be interested in joining us as a member of the Catholic Church, NOW is a very good time to invite them to make inquiries through the R.C.I.A. process. There is no obligation on their part, only a warm welcome, and answers to their questions.

This program is for those who are not baptized and feel the call to become members of our Catholic family, for those who are baptized but would like to join the Catholic Church and for those who were baptized in the Catholic Church but have not participated in Eucharist and/or Confirmation.

Please phone the parish office.

Pilgrimage from St. Norbert's Church To all 9 Holy Doors in the Archdiocese of Toronto

Our pilgrimage program to the Holy Doors located in the Archdiocese of Toronto is now ready.

Please take a look at our poster for more details:

We ask all parishioners who have picked up a registration form to fill it out and to return it as soon as possible.

Those who have not yet had a chance to pick up a form, please do it this weekend after all Masses.

Based on the feedback from some parishioners, we are happy to organize buses to avoid carpooling. We will be travelling together, as a group, on all 5 days. We will be using school buses, with the cost of $300 each, on four pilgrimages in GTA and to Midland in the buses organized by the Archdiocese.

There will not be a set cost for the trips, instead a donation will be accepted on the day of the pilgrimage.

If you would like to sponsor the cost of the bus full/partial please contact Paul Natale or Eugene after Sunday Masses or call to the office.

Pellegrinaggio alle Porte Sante dell'Arcidiocesi di Toronto

I parrocchiani che hanno gia ritirato il modulo di partecipazione al pellegrinaggio sono pregati di riempirlo e di restituirlo quanto prima alla chiesa.

Coloro i quali non avessero ancora il modulo possono ritirarlo questo fine-settimana subito dopo la messa.

Per rispondere infine alle richieste pervenute da alcuni parrocchiani, precisiamo che non è necessario che mettiate a disposizione la vostra auto per viaggiare in gruppi di 4 o 5 persone, in quanto viaggeremo tutti insieme in autobus durante i 5 giorni del pellegrinaggio.

Non vi è una tariffa fissa per coprire i costi dell'autobus, sara invece accettata una donazione il giorno del pellegrinaggio.

Se volete contribuire a coprire le spese di trasporto, potete farlo con una sponsorizzazione contattando Paul Natale dopo la messa.

21st week in Ordinary Time

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.

    Hands Together provides hope to the poor living in Haiti. Founded by Fr. Tom Hagen, O.S.F.D., and inspired by the Catholic teaching that recognizes the fundamental option for the poor and vulnerable, Hands Together focuses on people living in squalor and misery.

    In the worst slum in Haiti, Hands Together provides education; health services; nutrition; and emergency assistance to the poorest people in the Western Hemisphere.

    I am Fred Symour. I am looking forward to meeting the good people of St. Norbert's and telling them about Hands Together and this critical Catholic mission in Haiti.
