    Participate in this year’s Share Lent Campaign

    In this traditional time of fasting, prayer and almsgiving, we call on your generosity, so Development and Peace can sustain transformative work in the Global South. This year’s campaign theme is Create Hope: Reaping our Rights.

    Everywhere on Earth, and especially in the Global South, impoverished populations are facing growing challenges due to climate change, land grabbing, resource theft, soil contamination and armed conflict. Rural populations are particularly affected by these upheavals, and Development and Peace — Caritas Canada supports them in defending their rights to life, land, water, biodiversity, justice, health, participation, decent livelihoods, a healthy environment and more.

    Religious articles OPEN Sundays from 10-11am

    You can request for Mass intentions (Mass Cards) at the welcome desk/religious articles on Sunday Mornings between the 9am and 11am Masses! Just as we may offer personal prayers for the needs of others, the Church is able to offer prayers for particular intentions through the celebration of the Mass, where Jesus, the “source and summit of the Christian life”, is present in the Eucharist. Requesting a Mass intention is a great way to invite the whole parish to pray for your intentions.
