From the Top


     Pastoral ministry is not obsessed with the disjointed transmission of a multitude of doctrines to be insistently imposed.


     All revealed truths derive from the same divine source and are to be believed with the same faith, yet some of them are more important.

 . . . .  This holds true as much for the dogmas of faith as for the whole corpus of the Church’s teaching, including her moral teaching.


. . . .   Works of love directed to one’s neighbor are the most perfect external manifestation of the interior grace of the Spirit.


. . . .   It needs to be said that in preaching the Gospel a fitting sense of proportion has to be maintained.  This would be seen in the frequency with which certain themes are brought up and in the emphasis given to them in preaching.  For example, if in the course of the liturgical year a parish priest speaks about temperance ten times but only mentions charity or justice two or three times, an imbalance results, and precisely those virtues which ought to be most present in preaching and catechesis are overlooked.  The same thing happens when we speak more about law than about grace, more about the Church than about Christ, more about the Pope than about God’s word.

Should you wish to take advantage of this opportunity please contact the parish office for more details.




Working wonders in our community . . .

Of the more than 1 million foreign-born people who arrived in Canada between 2001 and 2006, more than 40% live in the Greater Toronto Area.  As a result, nearly 11% of our school system consists of recently arrived residents and over half of the total student population speak a non-official language most often at home.  Last year, ShareLife agencies provided settlement, advocacy and education programs for more than 40,000 immigrants and refugees in the GTA.

Next ShareLife Sunday – May 4, 2014

Please give generously.  You can work wonders!
