Death of Deacon Greg De Marchi

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Deacon Greg De Marchi who died suddenly on Thursday, April 12.
Deacon Greg was assigned to our parish after his ordination as a deacon in June 2012 and faithfully exercised this ministry with us until he moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake in July 2017.
His funeral mass was celebrated on Thursday, April 19 at St. Andrew’s Church, Oakville.
Please pray for his eternal rest, as well as for his wife Mariann, his five children and their spouses.

Eternal Rest Grant Unto him, O Lord, and Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon him.

ShareLife 2018: Today is 2nd ShareLife Sunday!

Thank you for your support of last weekend’s ShareLife Youth Bake Sale - both in your donations of baked goods and your support in buying them after each mass. We are happy that $1300 has been raised for this year’s ShareLife campaign.

Living the Gospel by providing for those in need…

“One of the core components of our Pastoral Plan is Catholic Outreach in Justice and Love. As a Catholic community, we are called to be the hands and face of Jesus in our communities. ShareLife is a tangible way we can put the Gospel value to ‘love one another as I have loved you’ into action. I invite all parishioners to support the mission work of the church by making a sacrificial gift to ShareLife.” —Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto.

Thank you for your contributions to this year’s campaign! We have collected $96,250 toward our parish goal of $227,000. Today is ShareLife Sunday. Thank you for your generosity.
