As we approach the most sacred time of the year, adapted ceremonies of Holy Week and Easter proceed in accordance to the restrictions required at this time. Due to the current pandemic, the liturgical celebration of the paschal mysteries of Holy Week, the Triduum and Easter will be celebrated without the physical participation of the faithful.

You may follow this link to the Archdiocese of Toronto for livestream options of liturgical celebrations of the Holy Week, the Triduum and Easter.



Living the Gospel locally and around the world

“Last year, your generosity to ShareLife made a difference in the lives of over 140,000 people locally and countless more around the world. Thank you for helping so many people experience God’s love and compassion.” – Cardinal Thomas Collins

Parishioners can still contribute by credit card through the ShareLife website, or by mailing or dropping off or mailing their contribution to the parish office


Each month food we collect is sent to Rosalie Hall and the Good Shepherd Centre. Unfortunately, with the current COVID-19 situation, we cannot accept any food donations at this time.

While we await for updates from these outreach ministries, let us always be mindful of what they do.

Rosalie Hall assists young parents and their children to realize their potential through the provision of a wide range of child development, community, residential and educational services.

Good Shepherd provides hot meals and shelter for the homeless in our city as well as a chance to start again through the Resettlement or DARE Programs.


At a time like this it can be uncomfortable to talk about giving. Our primary concern is the health and well-being of our parishioners. However, these difficult circumstances show just how important the offertory is to the life of our parishes.

The reality is that our parishes rely on the support of their parishioners to operate – parish salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.) are funded through the generosity of its parishioners. It will be a challenge for the parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection. Although our Churches are closed, our outreach programs and pastoral presence remain active.

Because there will be no masses, there will no offertory collections taken up. You may, however, drop off your envelope at the parish office or mail it to the parish.

Monthly contributions to the Parish by monthly Pre-Authorized Giving or by credit card through “Donate Now” continue automatically.

Please consider changing your offertory giving, at this time, to monthly Pre-Authorized Giving. Forms are available at the Parish office or on-line at the Parish website in the “Weekly Giving” section under the Finances tab.
