FINAL PARISH MASS LIVESTREAM
Sunday, June 19th at 11 a.m. was the last Mass live streamed from our parish.
Parishioners who are unable to celebrate Mass in person are invited to join the live stream from St. Michael's Cathedral Basilica, Sunday at Noon or to visit the website of the Archdiocese for other options.
As previously reported, the Archdiocese of Toronto split the parish Hall renovation into 2 phases due to increased costs/budget concerns. The first phase of the Hall renovation is nearing completion. This includes a significant amount of infrastructure for work that was moved to phase 2 by the Archdiocese. The 2nd phase is to include completion of the universal washroom, installation of room dividers, elevator installation, millwork for kitchen, stage, landscaping, a/c , a new stairwell etc.
Details for the 2nd phase will be shared when they are available. On-going fundraising is required for phase 2 of the Hall, as well as for a new sound system for the sanctuary. Phase 3, which will include the sanctuary and additional landscaping, will require additional fundraising.
We look forward to celebrating the completion of the first phase and to opening the Hall for use in July!
Thank you for your support.

Pre-Authorised giving A set donation figure of your choosing is withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month. Please contact the parish office to set this up.
If you have any questions regarding methods of donating, please email or phone the parish office.
Thank you for your many and varied contributions to our parish community!
I hope and pray that you are staying healthy – both physically and spiritually. Please let me know if the parish can help you during these difficult times.
No doubt you are aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – parish salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.) – are funded through the generosity of our parish community. It will be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection.
In response to many queries that I have received from parishioners, I offer below some of the ways that you may continue to support our parish if you are in a position to do so. I recognise that many of you, like the parish, are experiencing financial strain at this time and I pray that those stresses are soon eased for you.
For those in a position to continue to give to our parish, the easiest on-line options would be through the Archdiocese Donate Now link. Through this link you can give to the parish by credit card. These donations are handled by the Archdiocese. The donation is directed to the parish of your choice. The parish receives a monthly report of all donations made to the parish via this method and tax receipts are issued to donors at year end by the Archdiocese (one-time gifts are receipted at time of giving).
Pre-Authorised giving is also an option. A set donation figure of your choosing is withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month. We have a number of parishioners who give by this method. Please contact the office if you wish to set this up.
Weekly envelopes may still be used - mailed to the parish or dropped off.
Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I miss seeing all of you at the Mass and I pray daily that we will be able to gather together again soon.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor, St. Cecilia
