100th Anniversary Photo Directory

 We Need Everyone!

And  Everyone is welcome !

Here is your chance to get that professional portrait and it will all take place right here in our church!  IPC Photo Canada works at hundred of churches across Canada every year!  Every family will get a copy of this photo directory free just for having their portrait taken!  At no cost to our church either!  IPC offers this service free.

Sign up today after Mass to have your portrait

taken Monday, September 23rd & Wednesday, September 25th for our new photo directory.

The photo directory committee thanks you in advance for your participation and support in this very significant project!!!


Taste of the Danforth


Takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (August 9th, 10th & 11th).  We are planning to open the church to the public for visitation during the afternoons of Saturday and Sunday like we did last year.  In order for this to take place in an orderly fashion and with the proper respect we will need volunteers from the parish to act as tour guides and ushers.  Tour guides to answer questions about the church and ushers to maintain control over what is appropriate in the church and what is left outside.  Times would most likely be limited to 1 pm – 4 pm on Saturday and 2 pm – 4 pm on Sunday.  There will be a meeting of interested persons to discuss what will be expected of you.  We have a “self guided tour brochure” to make this open house a more meaningful experience.  Over one million people attend  the Taste of the Danforth and this would be a good opportunity for our church and our faith community to stand front and centre and open and welcoming.  If you are interested in participating in this open house, please contact the parish office or sign up at the entrance of the church on the clipboard.
