World Day of Prayer for Vocations…

This weekend, the fourth Sunday of Easter, we focus on the image of Jesus the Good Shepherd who know his sheep: he calls them and he guides them. This weekend is also World Day of Prayer for Vocations, as we pray in a special way that the Lord will choose from among our people men and women to shepherd and guide us in the faith.

On Friday, May 1st at our neighbouring parish of Merciful Redeemer, the Office of Vocations will be hosting a 7:00 p.m. Mass and Holy Hour, during which a reflection will be shared by one of the Toronto seminarians. Please join us in praying for vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

ShareLife 2015: Together We are Continuing to Work Wonders…

This year, Catholics across our archdiocese are being asked to support the Family of Faith Campaign. This campaign will provide for the pastoral and temporal needs of the archdiocese, such as campus and youth ministry, communication initiatives that will strengthen our family of faith, and support to help new parishes to celebrate Mass in a new church. The ShareLife campaign provides for the needs of our social service agencies, helps our brothers and sisters in Christ across the world, and supports the education of our clergy. There is no duplication – ShareLife agencies do not receive funding from the Family of Faith campaign. Thus 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.

So far this year, $118,975.00 has been contributed to date towards our parish goal of $229,000! Your ongoing support will help many in our community and around the world. We thank you for participating in our ShareLife Youth Ministry Bake Sale this weekend after each mass, and look forward to your support for the ShareLife Choir Concert on Saturday, June 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the church. Tickets ($10 per person, children 12 and under free) will be available from the parish office beginning on the weekend of May 9/10.
