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 requests that I have received from parishioners, here are the ways that you can continue to support our parish at this time:
- Drop off or mail your regular weekly offertory contribution to the parish office.
- Contribute to our parish offertory by credit card. Please click here. You will then be able to select our parish in the drop-down menu. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to our parish offertory or other special funds.
- Contribute through pre-authorized giving. Click here for more information on pre-authorized giving. You can obtain a form from the parish office or you can click here to download an enrollment form which can be printed and completed. Return the completed form and a voided cheque to your parish office. Or e-mail the form and a scanned copy or photo of a voided cheque to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.
- You can contribute to the offertory via online banking. To do this, the archdiocese will need to send you a unique account number. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com. In the body of the email provide:
* Your name
* Parish name
You will be emailed account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to our parish. You can make a one time or recurring gift to our offertory.
If you have any questions please contact the Development Office at the Archdiocese of Toronto, 416-934-3400, ext. 540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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,

Advent Wreath Lighting
During this upcoming Advent season some families have volunteered to light each candle of the Advent wreath, on the four Sundays. They will be coming at 8:45am, say a short prayer listed below. You may join them from home in the prayer. Then the family will return to their homes. This is a symbolic gesture that the church community is present here as we approach the light of Christ being born into our world.
I will then begin my 9 am mass online in the church. May God continue to Bless you and keep you safe.
