A Message from the Spiritual Advisor – Fr. Oliver Iwuchukwu

We are already in Lent, another Lent. We have been given another opportunity to dust ourselves clean as we listen more attentively to the one who is forever calling us to fullness of life. Of course we have been through this penitential season before. Not once but many times. In our life‘s journey, we have sailed through many Lenten seasons— fasting and abstaining and responding, in our different ways, to the season‘s invitation to repentance, change and renewal. Yes, we have been through this season before. For those of us who have the time, it may useful to attempt honest answers to such questions as: What have these many Lenten seasons done for me? What have they done to me? Have I become a better person? More loving, more caring, more generous with my time and talents?

What makes Lent beautiful is that it is a preparation for the glorious new life we celebrate at Easter. May our journey through this penitential season make us become more like Him whose resurrection from the dead we are preparing to celebrate.

A Message from the President – Lucia Vacca

Love and Joy are fruits of the Holy Spirit. Are we inspired by the Holy Spirit in what we say? Are we witnesses of Christ‘s presence for others by what we do? Let us be the sign of love and joy to those we meet with a genuine willing heart to imitate God‘s unconditional love in our relationship with others. As we continue with our journey of 64 years as a St. Joseph‘s CWL Council, let us inspire others and be the witnesses of His love and love one another.

Your joyful participation and support of the initiatives of the League is what will encourage all of us to move forward to show our bond, commitment and strength in sisterhood built on our faith as Catholic Women. Let‘s use our hands in joyful service and hearts to love.

Wishing all of you a Happy Easter and may our Risen Lord, give us the spirit to respond to God‘s call with our actions. “Inspired by the Spirit, Women Respond to God’s Call”.

A Message from Spiritual Development – Mai Tran

Spiritual Growth

We, as CWL members, all have been called and inspired by the Spirit to share our faith in actions by involving in the faith activities with the community. Our prayer is the most important and cannot be neglected. However, as children of God, to fulfil our duties for the Love of God and of one another, we truly need the guidance of the Holy Spirit for our directions.

“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for whatever you please and you will get it. 8 It is to the glory of my Father that you should bear much fruit and be my disciples”. [John 15:7-8]

When we pray with the Gospel, God is speaking directly to us, and we truly are “rooted in Gospel value”. Praying with the Gospel, we also dearly listen to God‘s voice that dialogue with us. How do we do that in our daily busiest time? If we have a desire to spend a little time with God each day in this busy ‗life style‘, surely God will be with us and provide helps for our need. To have a good connection and good relationship with God is the wisdom of the children of God. First, we need to realize and experience God‘s love for us, and then we are able to share that love with one another. We cannot share or give to others what we do not have.

A brief sharing of cultivating individual spiritual growth

As we all know, everything that we do well requires a good practice, which will help to get us into good daily habits. The church has prepared for us the Daily Missal – Living with Christ – which I myself find very helpful for daily prayer with God beside the Liturgy of the Hour. To start the day before getting ready for work, I spend about 20 minutes to read the Living with Christ from the Entrance Antiphon to the end of all the readings and prayers of that day. Then I spent sometimes for a reflection. Everyday then becomes enlightened and refreshed with God‘s word. Some days, when things turn sour unexpectedly, I find myself still protected with God‘s peace. At the end of the day in the family, we pray together, and we share our struggles of the day from work places and anywhere else. We offer praises and thanks to the grace of God that helps us to end the day with peace and joy. I myself also need to have some time for a brief self-examination each day, in order to experience whether God is present in all of my actions. Then I pray to God for helping me do better in the next day.

A Message from Education & Health – Hyacinth Fernandes

Hello! my name is Hyacinth Fernandes and I am a teacher with the Toronto Catholic district school board. I teach French and have a great love of languages and share this love with my students as much as I can. I have been a parishioner of St Josephs for more than 10 years and have served on many ministries such as Sunday school, children’s liturgy at the 11.00 am mass, confirmation classes and lector. I believe that church is much more than attending mass on a Sunday.

To me church is community and I try to help in this community as best as I can. I am honoured to be on the executive this year and look forward to working with my peers to make the coming 2 years the best ever!

Happy New Year 2017!

Treasurer – Marla Tanuan

A blessed New Year to you all. I am once again pleased to serve our council as your Treasurer for the next 2 years. Having been a part of St. Joseph’s since 2000, my family and I have grown to love this community and every person who forms it. Our family has been very involved in our parish community and with various ministries ever since. As a Treasurer, I am once again able to put to use my God-given talent as an Accountant. I look forward to serving the League to the best of my abilities.

Fall Bazaar

Our Fall Bazaar, which was held on November 19, 2016, was once again a huge success – thanks to Our Lord for the wonderful weather; to all the untiring Sisters in the League and to the dedicated volunteers who shared their time, talents and treasures. Our heartfelt thanks go as well for the assistance of our Brothers at the Knights of Columbus who never fail to lend us a helping hand at our events. May God reward you all richly. This Bazaar enabled us to raise a whopping $8,595.05 in gross revenues. A summary of the revenues from each area are as follows:

Revenue Summary
Apple Pie Sales $3,294.00
Bake Table $1,251.20

A Message from Resolutions & Legislation – Christine Lorenz

Greetings CWL Sisters of St. Joseph’s!

My name is Christine Lorenz and I have the pleasure to introduce myself as your newly elected Legislation and Resolutions Chair for the next two years. I was very honoured to have been asked to join the Executive team even though I have not been a visible member of the CWL.

I have been a parishioner of St. Joseph’s since 1997, and a silent member of the CWL since 2011. It was only this past summer at the Heritage Festival that I volunteered for the first time. I also joined the St. Joe’s lector group in September. I have so much to learn about all of the exciting events and activities that our CWL offers.

I am looking forward to serving on the CWL Executive, but most importantly to share with our sisters what legislation and resolutions our CWL women from across Canada, our province and our neighbouring parishes are working towards to make a difference in the lives of all Canadians.

I have been married to my husband Peter for the past 20 years. We have a son, Eric who is 19 and a daughter, Emma who is 17. Both of my children were baptized at St. Joe’s, and attended Sunday School where they received their Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. I am an elementary school teacher with the Toronto Catholic District School Board where I have been employed for the past 12 years. Previous to working as a teacher I was employed by the City of Toronto Parks and Recreation and Public Health Departments. I hold an Honours Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Education and a Master’s of Education degree. My interests include gardening, knitting, singing, and a lot of Pinterest pinning on a variety of subjects.

A Message from Secretary – Ju-Ann Miranda

My name is Ju-Ann Miranda and have been a parishioner with St. Joseph for 7 years. I studied at St. Joseph’s Convent school in Mumbai and am happy to be associated with my patron saint again. I have been a CWL member for 5 years. My husband is in the Knights of Columbus and my daughter Seanne is an Altar server. I like this parish as we support many activities, and our CWL sisters are also very active in our parish as we do a lot of charitable work for our community which inspired me to join CWL.

A Message from Communications – Tania Mascarenhas

Hi, my name is Tania Mascarenhas; my family & I have been parishioners at St. Joseph’s since 2009 when we first immigrated from India to Canada. Both my husband and I have tried to be actively involved in the Parish, and St. Joseph’s in turn has given us the much needed love, support and friends that anyone new to Canada is always happy to have!! We have just celebrated our 25 years of marriage and are blessed with a son who is 24 and a daughter who is 19.

I have served as Chair for Spiritual Development in 2014, and it was an amazing learning experience for me. I am excited to be serving again as Chair for Communications and from past experience I know that we will always have the support of the previous CWL executives if needed.

A Message from Past President/Historian – Ingrid Hart

Two years ago when I accepted the President’s position I was the NKTB (New Kid on The Block) as I had no prior executive experience. The past two years have been a learning and enriching time in my life, but also humbling, gratifying and rewarding as I look back at what our council has achieved. It has been a great privilege and honour to be the president of this council. We have clothed the naked, fed the hungry and gave hope to people who thought no one cared. With greeting cards that were mailed to the Indigenous people living on a reservation in northern Alberta filled with words of hope and encouragement. In several places in the bible Jesus said to us, ‘to love and serve one another’ and our council has surely demonstrated that.

I thank you for your generous and unwavering support especially on our projects. You were ready and willing when asked. St. Joseph’s Highland Creek Council, we have made a difference in peoples’ lives I am so proud to be a member of this council. I look forward to serving you and our new executive team as your Past President.

Thank you once again and may God bless you and your families abundantly for caring, for your kindness and your generosity. May you and your families have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Good Shepherd Provide-a-Meal Program

The Good Shepherd Provide-a-Meal program has been active in our parish for over 20 years and is supported by many other parishes in Toronto, each providing their own casserole meals to the Good Shepherd Refuge on Queen Street in downtown Toronto. Our CWL Sister Annie Alkins and her husband Peter have been organizing St. Joseph’s efforts in this meal program for many, many years, out of a desire to be of service and to also offer fellow parishioners an easy way to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. You are being invited to “feed the hungry” by your support of this rewarding program.

The Good Shepherd is a safe space for the marginalized in the downtown Toronto community. It is a drop in centre where a hot meal is always available to anyone in need. The centre serves over 1300 meals a day, making it the largest meal program in the city of Toronto. It also provides a range of other services, including access to pastoral care, counseling, gently used clothing and just over 90 fully booked beds for men’s overnight stay.

How the program works…….

  • They provide you the casserole container and recipe; (beef and macaroni casseroles)
  • You prepare the same beef and macaroni casserole once per month;
  • Keep some for your family – it’s delicious!
  • Freeze the casserole
  • Drop off the frozen casserole on dates specified between 9:30 and 10:00 after the Saturday morning mass at the west parking lot. Drop off dates: Feb 4, March 4, April 1, May 6, June 3, July 8, Sept 9, Oct 7, Nov 4, Dec 2.
  • Pick up an empty container when you do the drop off.
  • You’re done!
