Upcoming Parish Staff Changes

Our Associate Pastor Fr. Mauricio Sanjines has been appointed by Cardinal Collins as Associate Pastor of St. Francis Xavier Parish, Mississauga effective Wednesday June 30, 2021. I wish to thank Fr. Mauricio for his two years of service here at St. Ignatius Loyola Parish, and wish him well in his new assignment! We hope to be able to gather in person to thank Fr. Mauricio before he heads off for vacation for the last three weeks of June.

Our new associate pastor will be Fr. John Sutka, currently associate pastor at St. Michael's Cathedral Basilica, who also lived with us at the rectory from March to August 2020 during the first wave of the pandemic. We look forward to welcoming Fr. John back to St. Ignatius Loyola Parish!

Elise Jaklic, one of our weekend secretaries, has accepted a one-year internship at General Motors in St. Catharines, ON and will be moving there effective May 1, 2021. We thank Elise for her dependable service in the parish office and wish her well in this exciting job opportunity which complements her engineering studies.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Last week was Volunteer Appreciation week in the Province of Ontario, and at this time of year we would usually host an Appreciation Gathering for all involved in our parish ministries. Since we cannot gather in person this year to do so I want to thank all of you who are in any way involved in our over 35 parish ministries for your ministry… especially over the past year during this pandemic! Your ministry is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to resuming many of our ministries here at the parish as soon as it is safe to do so

At communion time we invite you to join in the following prayer:

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

ShareLife 2021: Your gift to ShareLife is helping!

“ShareLife-funded agencies have been helping thousands of people since the pandemic began. They quickly adapted their programs in light of safety and the changing needs of the people they serve. We can help alleviate the suffering of those whose lives have been upended by the pandemic. Let us say yes to Jesus' call to live the Gospel by providing for those in need.” – Cardinal Thomas Collins

In the gospel for the 6th Sunday of Easter (May 9) Jesus says to his disciples: "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friend." In the course of our own mortal lives, we may not be asked to lay down our life for a friend. However, we are asked, whenever we can, to help our brothers and sisters. That’s what ShareLife is all about. Its more than 40 agencies put your generous donations to work, in service of the Lord, to help those who are in need and less fortunate.

This year we are encouraging you to give at sharelife.org, where you can make a one-time or monthly gift by credit card and designate it to our parish’s campaign. Monthly giving is a convenient way to spread your ShareLife contribution over the course of a year.

Using a green ShareLife envelope, found at the doors of the church or available from the parish office, simply fill out the form on the envelope and include a void cheque. Submit it to the parish office or drop it in the offertory basket at any time. Contact ShareLife at slife@archtoronto.org or 416-934-3411 if you have any questions about pre-authorized giving.

Thank you for supporting ShareLife!

Your Financial Support is Appreciated

Thank you once again for your generosity and support of our parish community as we return to church and during Holy Week, especially by placing your envelope in the offertory basket before mass or mailing in your donations, or donating via Pre-Authorized Giving or by credit card, or single or monthly donations through the “Donate now” button at www.archtoronto.org

Please join us at the end of each mass in praying the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel:

Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
