Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops – Delegation to the Holy See- Healing and Reconciliation – December 17, 2021

Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops announced that the delegation to the Holy See to foster meaningful dialogue and healing with Indigenous Peoples and the Holy Father will take place December 17 – 20, 2021. An excerpt of the statement reads as follows:

“Pope Francis is deeply committed to hearing directly from Indigenous Peoples, expressing his heartfelt closeness, addressing the impact of colonization and the role of the Church in the residential school system, in the hopes of responding to the suffering of Indigenous Peoples and the ongoing effects of intergenerational trauma. The Bishops of Canada are deeply appreciative of the Holy Father’s spirit of openness in generously extending an invitation for personal encounters with each of the three distinct groups of delegates – First Nations, Métis and Inuit – as well as a final audience with all delegates together on 20 December 2021.”

Message for Parishioners for Support of Parish Offertories

Dear parishioners,
We would like to update you of our financial situation as a parish faith community. Since our church is open with limited attendance we have provided a safe space for worship due to the hard work of our volunteers and pastoral team.  Due to this lower attendance, 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 campaign@archtoronto.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.

Keep a Bible close to you for daily inspiration

Picture of open bible

“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
