22nd 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.

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

St. Mary's Syro-Malankara Catholic Mission, an Oriental Catholic Church mission in the Archdiocese of Toronto under the pastoral care of Fr. Gigi Philip, has been part of the St. Margaret of Scotland Parish from 1997 and was using the facility of St. Eugene's Chapel up until now. This community is going to be part of the faith life of St. Norbert's Parish from September 2015.

We welcome the Syro-Malankara Catholic Community, to St. Norbert's.
