“The most beautiful thing that God made, was the family. All of the love that God has in Himself, all of the beauty that God has in Himself, all of the truth that God has in Himself, He gives to the family.”
Pope Francis

Heavenly Father, you have given us the model of life
in the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Help us, O Loving Father, to make our family another Nazareth
where love, peace and joy reign.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Seraphim & Cherubim Chorus! Have you missed us as much as we’ve missed you? We’ve been hard at work on some big things this Christmas season. Our new project “River” includes a new album, three incredible music videos and a Virtual Concert. Head over to seraphimandcherubim.ca to see what we’ve been up to and learn how you can support us in our continuing mission to connect and move our community through music.


Pope Francis has launched the Synod on Synodality: a two-year global process of listening to the faithful that will help the Church reflect on how we can do God’s will in the world today. The comments of the faithful will ultimately be discussed at a meeting of the bishops in the Vatican in 2023.

The 2022 Offertory envelopes are now available. When you attend Mass, please remember to pick up your box of envelopes from Nikki, maintaining the required physical distancing.

If there is no box with your name on it and you want a box, please let the parish office know in person, by phone or by email. If you are donating via Pre-Authorized Giving or Donate Now at the Archdiocese, you normally would not have an envelope box assigned to you.

If you still have envelopes in your possession from any prior year, including 2021, please do no use them for 2022. Also, write your name and complete address on the first few 2022 envelopes you use so that the office can ensure we have your correct information for sending out tax receipts.
