New to the Parish?
SHARELIFE: ARCHBISHOP LEO INVITES YOU TO JOIN SHARELIFE’S FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER.
NEW: Your gift will double in value! From November 1 until year end, your contribution to our parish’s ShareLife campaign will be matched by an anonymous donor up to a total of $500,000.
“It is heart-wrenching and unacceptable that anyone today lacks access to food which is a most basic human right,” shares Archbishop Francis Leo. “Our parishioners are taking action in response to the Lord’s call to feed the hungry. Since the earliest days of the Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Toronto, the faithful have cared for those in need, on the margins of society and we continue this life-giving legacy.”
Please support the fight against hunger at sharelife.org/donate or by giving at our parish using a ShareLife envelope.
Thank you for reaching out with the hands of Christ to feed the hungry.

EDGE will meet on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month, starting from Oct 13th, 2023.
COME DISCOVER HOW THE WORD CREATES!
We grow in our relationship with God & one another through various activities: obstacle courses, escape room puzzles, team crafting & more.
Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.
They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.
Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
Please visit FORMED at (https://formed.org) where you can gain access to thousands of the best Catholic movies, programs, audio and books instantly. This incredible resource is available to our parishioners for free! Please call the Parish Office for the Parish Access code and/or more information.
