VOCATION SEEDS

The confused and fear filled apostles were totally changed by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as they became powerful and dynamic proclaimers of their faith in Jesus Christ. In today's Church God calls priests, religious and deacons to serve Him and to serve others especially by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

If you feel God may be calling you to this ministry, call Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocation Director, Archdiocese of Toronto 416-968-0997, email vocations@archtoronto.org, www.vocationstoronto.ca.

8th 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.

Nepal Earthquake
Nepal has been struck by an earthquake on April 25. It is the most powerful disaster to hit Nepal in the last 80 years. It is believed that nearly 6000 people were killed.

The earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 19 and making it the deadliest day on the mountain in history.

The Archdiocese of Toronto is accepting financial contributions for humanitarian relief following the catastrophic effects of this earthquake.

Those wishing to help may do so in the following ways:

  • Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website: www.archtoronto.org;

  • By phone through the Development Office - 416-934-3411;

  • Through the parish, making cheques payable to: St. Norbert's Parish - Nepal Earthquake - Humanitarian Relief

    The 2015 ShareLife Campaign

    Working wonders for our new arrivals in Canada...

    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
    Within one year of arriving in Canada, large numbers of immigrants who had no prior mental health problems experience mental health challenges that often impede their ability to settle in Canada.

    In addition, there are few culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health services.

    Last year, ShareLife agencies helped to meet this challenge by providing advocacy programs for more than 40,000 immigrants and refugees in the GTA.

    Thank you for your generosity.

    Together we can work wonders!
