ST. VINCENT DE PAUL

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul would like to thank you, the parishioners, and the families of students at St. Gabriel’s School for their generosity throughout the year but particularly during the Christmas period. This has enabled us to help many of our neighbors in need, in and around the parish, all of whom are very grateful for your practical thoughtfulness.

VOCATIONS

Jesus’ identity is revealed as “The Son of God” through His baptism in the Jordan. Our identity as “children of God” is revealed through our baptism. Our lives then, must constantly witness Jesus as Lord.

If you think God is calling you to a Church vocation, call Fr. Liborio at 416-968-0997.
