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 Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.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

    Reflections

    for Sunday, May 14, 2017

    "You have faith in God; have faith also in me." "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." These two quotes from today's Gospel from Saint John try to express God's words to us about how to live with the Lord Jesus. All of us, including these earlier followers of Jesus, can be with Jesus and still not know Him. We relate to Him and we strive to follow Him and yet there are enormous areas of our lives in which we simply do not know Him.

    The first reading today, from the Acts of the Apostles, begins to show us that even in the earliest Christian communities, there were problems and conflicts. These early followers tried to solve problems by dialog and taking counsel - and most of the time it seems to have worked, but not always. We humans find conflict almost more natural than living in harmony!

    Every Christian community will have conflicts and differences and challenges. There is no easy way to deal with them. Yet we must deal with them or we break apart as a community. One of the great gifts in our Catholic Church is that we believe that there is an authority structure in the Church and that individuals and individual congregations or individual Churches cannot solve problems alone. We must work together.

    The second reading is from the First Letter of Saint Peter. Today's passage reminds us that we shall inevitable stumble if we do not base our lives on the Word of God. Today so many of us want to base our lives simply on our own personal insights and ways of thinking and our own personal experiences. Surely our insights, ways of thinking and personal experiences are important - but they must always be judged by the Word of God and looked in in the light of that Word. We humans are mysteries in progress, not simply realities that can no longer change. Life is about living this mystery of God's love for us and responding to His Word. That Word will change us and transform us. If we do not heed the Word, we stumble and fall.

    This brings us back to the Gospel and to the knowledge that Jesus truly gives Himself to us and invites us to live in that personal self-giving. Once we acknowledge Jesus as Lord, our lives begin to change. We may fail over and over and over - but always we get up and keep on going because the Lord is with us and invites us to keep walking with Him.

    My sisters and brothers, Christ is risen and is alive. Christ is risen and invites us to walk as He walked and to live as He lived. May this Easter Sunday help us give ourselves more completely to Him.
