From the Pastor's Desk
Dear parishioners,

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 development@archtoronto.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 Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.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 campaign@archtoronto.org. In the body of the email provide:

   * Your name
   * Address
   * Parish name
   * Municipality

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 development@archtoronto.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,
Fr. Xavier de Pinto

    News and Announcements

    The Best Ash Wednesday Ever

    This year I kept Ash Wednesday better than ever before. This, on the year of the pandemic when most of our religious celebrations have been locked-down.

    On Ash Wednesday our new and struggling-to-survive ministry to single moms sent two of its members to deliver the monthly grocery support to a sister in need. What a joyful experience sending the first ministers out, to witness the ministry start to take root in the heart of the parish. I praised God and, as St Paul is so fond of writing, I also praised the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He taught us of the importance of caring for each other, and not hiding from the need of a sister or brother.

    On my way home I felt so grateful. My thoughts went to the one-and-only family our ministry reached before the emergency. I was so grateful for their openness and humility. (It is not easy to voice need, and harder still to accept handouts.)

    God bless the member who said: “Father, we need to do something”. That was last year, while we were bracing for the second wave. God bless the benefactor who provides us with food vouchers every month. God bless our parish and its pastor in their zeal for the Gospel. And God bless our little outreach... I call it Mother-and-Child.

    J. Villegas, OFM Cap
