Marriage Sunday – February 12/13, 2022


Marriage Sunday highlights the importance of the sacrament of matrimony, affirms couples who strengthen our faith community through their witness, and complements World Marriage Sunday celebrations that take place across North America. It also honours those who nurture marriage ministries – marriage preparation, enrichment, etc. First celebrated in the Archdiocese of Toronto in 2011, His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins designated the weekend prior to the Family Day long weekend in Ontario as “Marriage Sunday”. In 2022, Marriage Sunday weekend will be celebrated on February 12/13, 2022.

We cannot emphasize enough on the importance of Praying the Rosary. The Rosary is a way of life; a life of obedience to God’s will. It allows you to see and experience the journey of our Lord Jesus Christ, right here on earth, through it’s Decades and Mysteries. When we pray the Rosary, we approach Christ through Mary.

We hardly need elaborate on the multitude of crises that fill the globe, particularly the Coronavirus Pandemic. Sadly, many are being swept away by an enormous flood of the dreaded virus and people are succumbing to an overwhelming sense of anxiety and discouragement. In these dark days, we must not be afraid but step out in faith and once again turn to the rosary, calling on the Immaculate Virgin to come to our assistance and put our enemies to flight. We must pray and fast with a living faith and a firm confidence—and there is no better way to do this than by praying the Holy Rosary.


Our Holy Father Pope Francis invites us during these challenging times to “heal the World through Prayer”. He has called for a Global Prayer Marathon for the entire month of May, praying for an end to the Pandemic. It commences on Saturday, 1st of May until Monday, 31st of May 2021. Let us come together and unite ourselves in unceasing and intercessory Prayers as there is much power in united Prayers. Let us keep our immediate families in our Prayers, while also praying for our Parish Family, our City, our Province, our entire Nation and the World at large.
