    Welcome to Precious Blood Parish


    NEWS
    Pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Jordan

    September 16-27 2019

    Our trip is sold out and due to the success, we decided to get a few more seats because we were still getting calls from people interested in joining.

    If interested, please contact the office!

     
    From the Pastor's Desk

    Dear parishioners,

    We have been carefully assessing the needs of Precious Blood Parish's youth ministry program and have determined that we can no longer financially sustain the position of youth minister.

    As a result, we regret to inform you that Chico will be leaving this ministry at the end of this month on June 27.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chico for his work and commitment to the youth of our parish over these years. Chico, we hope that you will be able to share your many talents in your future endeavours.

    Please come and celebrate with us Chico's ministry at our parish after the 12 PM Mass on Sunday June 23rd in our Church hall.

    God Bless,
    Father Xavier

     
    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:

    Sharelife

    Living the Gospel by helping homeless youth

    On any given night, 6000 people across Canada between 16 and 24 have nowhere to call home. This represents 20% of the total homeless population. The ShareLife-supported Rights of Passage program at Covenant House is making a positive difference in the lives of homeless youth on the streets of Toronto. The program matches adolescents with mentors who help them build life skills. By supporting ShareLife, you’re helping at-risk youth prepare for life on their own.

    We have raised $61,000 towards our $69,000 goal for ShareLife. God Bless!

    Please make a sacrificial gift to ShareLife through the parish or www.sharelife.org

    Thank you for your generosity.

     
    D-Day 75th Anniversary

    Precious Blood Church celebrates the Feast of Corpus Christi
    Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 5pm Mass followed by a procession.

    The Eucharistic procession is also known as a Corpus Christi procession because of its association with the Feast of Corpus Christi. The full name of this feast is Corpus et Sanguis Christi, or the Body and Blood of Christ. The Feast of the Body and Blood of the Lord and the procession with the Blessed Sacrament, celebrating the sacrament and signifying God’s presence in our world and in our lives and reminding us of our common pilgrimage to Heaven, is a prayerful and edifying act of the entire Church.

    After the Solemn mass, our pastor Fr. Xavier De Pinto and invited guest priests will lead the procession of the Blessed Sacrament joined by our parishioners, friends and neighbours. Our Eucharistic procession route will be from the Church to Lawrence Avenue to Pharmacy Avenue then Janet Blvd to Victoria Park and back to the Church on Lawrence Avenue.

    After the procession, ALL are welcome for free barbecue reception hosted by St. Vincent De Paul and the Knights of Columbus on the Church lawn (or in the Parish Hall if weather is not favourable).
