Message for Parishioners for Support of Parish Offertories
We would like to update you of our financial situation as a parish faith community. Since the closure of our church in March followed by our re-opening in June we have provided a safe space for worship due to the hard work of our volunteers and pastoral team. Due to the limited number of parishioners attending our Masses, our financial health has been impacted negatively. We ask now, if you are financially able, to please consider your financial support of the parish using the following options.
- Drop off or mail your regular weekly offertory contribution to the parish office.
- Visit our Donate Now page by clicking here and select the region for our parish from the map. You will be taken to a page that allows you to choose your parish, amount of your gift – one-time or recurring and payment method – credit card or chequing account.
- You can contribute to the offertory via on-line banking – similar to how you may be paying your utility bills. To do this, we need to send you your unique account number. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body of the email provide us with your name, address, parish name and municipality. We will email you your account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to your parish. You can make a one-time or recurring gift to your offertory. This is the most cost effective way to donate electronically
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the parish office at 416-439-1545 for assistance. Thank you so much for your loyalty, ongoing support and generosity.

R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
R.C.I.A. is a process whereby individuals explore their relationship with God and enter into a faith journey which takes them to a study and reflection on the Bible, the Trinity, the sacraments and the liturgy. We invite those who are interested to call the parish for information.
Keep a Bible close to you for daily inspiration
“Let us make room in our lives for the word of God. Each day, let us read a verse or two of the Bible. Let us begin with the Gospel: let us keep it open on our table, carry it in our pocket, read it on our cell phones, and allow it to inspire us daily,”
– Pope Francis
