From the Desk of Fr. Tim …

O God, who on this day, through your Only Begotten Son,
have conquered death and unlocked for us the path to eternity,
grant, we pray, that we who keep the solemnity of the Lord's Resurrection may,
through the renewal brought by your Spirit, rise up in the light of life.
-Collect Prayer, Easter Sunday Mass

On behalf of our parish staff, I wish to thank you for joining us for Easter Sunday mass as we rejoice in the light of Christ’s resurrection, and seek to be a light to others whom we will encounter today and throughout the Easter Season!

For our Ministers of the Word… organized by Carol Dewar and the Ministers of the Eucharist organized by Mario and Loretta Rodriguez…. and Stephen and Alison Gawronski who coordinated the Altar Servers.

ShareLife Campaign 2019: Living the Gospel by Immediate Mental Health Services…

Mental health problems can escalate if not addressed quickly. That’s why the five Catholic Family Services agencies in the Archdiocese of Toronto now offer walk-in counselling. This initiative can often meet clients’ needs without requiring longer term counselling. Clients report a clinically significant increase in confidence that they can tackle their problems. For some agencies, ShareLife is the sole funder of this important program. By supporting ShareLife, you’re helping restore hope to those in crisis.

Thank you for your support so far this year! We have raised a total of $75,634 toward our parish goal of $215,000. If you have given in past years, I thank you and invite your support again this year. If ShareLife has not been part of your charitable giving in the past, I ask you to consider how your donation will spread Easter joy to the many recipients in each of the 40 agencies supported by ShareLife this year. Thank you for prayerfully considering a donation to support our ShareLife parish campaign this year.

May 5 is ShareLife Sunday. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

ShareLife Bake Sale, Next Weekend April 27/28…

In advance of our parish ShareLife Bake Sale next weekend, we thank our parishioners for their donation of home-made baked goods for this fundraising event.
