Letting Go

Letting Go by Michael Pirri “…unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and it dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. […] Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour.” […]

ShareLife Sunday

Our suggested Parish goal is $83,000. “It is important that we continue to support the ShareLife appeal, to provide for the needs of the marginalized both here in our communities and around the world. Sometimes the results are obvious and sometimes they’re invisible, but always they make a tangible difference in the lives of the people we are helping. Please prayerfully consider how you can be supportive today on ShareLife Sunday” —Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto Today is ShareLife Sunday. Thank you for your generosity.

Stations of the Cross

Join us on Fridays during Lent for the Stations of the Cross. Each week we will join in prayer beginning with Vespers, at 5:10PM followed by the Stations of the Cross. Each week during Lent, we will use a different variation of the Stations of the Cross. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Michael at (416) 926-1300 x.3210 or
