    Quick Info Sheet

    Welcome to Precious Blood Parish

    Our Jesuit Pear Tree

    Was a pleasure to meet Robert Holland today and be informed of a special tree, the Jesuit Pear Tree which is over 300 years old which is right next to our church. It’s a sign that French missionaries travelled here centuries ago.

    Pray for the Sick

    Your love is as wide as the oceans, as deep as the sea, and as tall as the heavens. May your spirit rise like a mightly wave and come and restore those who are ill:

    Norma Da Costa, Eileen Da Silva, Al Gallant, Tristen Baxter, Brenda McGuire

    Pray for the Deceased

    Fr. Garnet Sauvé, Paul Olubick

    Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen

    From the Pastor's Desk

    Dear Parishioners,

    In the back of the church in the vestibule, we have two "in remembrance" plaques which you can put your names of loved ones who have passed into the loving arms of Christ.

    Each name you put on the name plate will cost $300 per name. Each plate can only take a maximum of two names.

    These donations will go to our maintenance fund which will help us to purchase new kneelers for the church and improve our air conditioning system.

    You can take a blue maintenance envelope from your box of envelopes or at any church entrance and place the name you want on the name plate with your donation and envelope number if applicable.

    God bless you as we begin this endeavour!

    Fr. Xavier

    RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

    We will be starting an RCIA program in the fall.

    The R.C.I.A. is the process that welcomes and introduces inquirers who have felt the call of God to join our Catholic Faith. The initiation process is primarily for those who are not baptized, or baptized in another Christian tradition, or for those who may have been baptized in the Catholic tradition but have never been catechized and/or fully initiated (have not received Eucharist and Confirmation).

    If you are interested or someone you know who might be interested please call Ann Mullan at 416-449-9788.


    Our parish bulletin will end regular issues for the summer on June 24th.

    There will be a bulletin on July 15th and August 19th.

    Regular weekly bulletins will resume on September 9th. Items for the bulletin should be submitted to the parish office one week before date of publication.

    Thank you for your cooperation
