The Archdiocese of Toronto will hold a special collection THIS weekend, October 1/2, 2022, to support the Indigenous Healing & Reconciliation Fund. The fund will support both local and national programs proposed by Indigenous communities to nurture the ongoing reconciliation journey.  You can donate through the parish this weekend or online anytime at: www.archtoronto.org/healingandreconciliation.


The annual event of Season of Creation began on September 1, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology. Each year an ecumenical steering committee selects a theme.  This year, inspiration is taken from Psalm 19:1-4 that proclaims, “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” A short video to introduce this season may be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyjUTvGmliI

 If you've been serving in parish ministry and are looking for an opportunity to connect with others serving in ministry to pray together, learn together and to be re-energised, you won't want to miss this upcoming Archdiocesan conference.

The conference will feature keynote speaker Julianne Stanz (joining us live from Green Bay, WI) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. In four engaging and interactive sessions, she will help us to set forth a vision for moving into the deep waters of missionary discipleship with joy, humour and practical insights. On Saturday, we will begin with Mass with Cardinal Thomas Collins as principal celebrant and homilist. The Auxiliary Bishops of Toronto will join us for a live discussion on missionary discipleship in our parishes. Come see our sponsors and pastoral exhibitors and enjoy fellowship with one another over a continental breakfast and buffet lunch.
