Celebrating First Communion

Communion creates community. Christ, living in them, brought them together in a new way. The spirit of the risen Christ, which entered them through the eating of the bread and drinking of the cup, not only made them recognize Christ himself, but also each other as members of a new community of faith. Communion makes us look at each other and speak to each other, not about the latest news but about him who walked with us. We discover each other as people who belong together because each of us now belongs to him.

~Henri Nouwen, With Burning Hearts: A meditation on the Eucharistic Life, Orbis Books, 1994.


Congratulations to the twenty-eight children who celebrate receiving Holy Communion for the first time this weekend. May you always experience the Presence of the Risen Lord throughout your lives and grow closer to Him in every way.

St. Vincent said, “God demands first the heart, then the work”. It is only with our heart that we can bring compassion, respect and devotion to members of our community who are vulnerable and marginalized.


By visiting people in need in their homes and walking alongside to guide them to resources to break the cycle of poverty, we give them hope for the future.

Your generous donations to our poor boxes and through Canada Helps do help us make a difference. Thank you!

Donating Securities to the Parish Through the Archdiocese of Toronto


A donation of securities is one of the easiest and smartest ways to donate in Canada. When you donate to the Archdiocese of Toronto, you put stock in knowing that you are creating the greatest impact on the church and those we serve. Consider making a gift of securities to your parish or any one of our Archdiocesan charities.


With a gift of securities, you can receive an immediate donation receipt for the fair market value of the security. In addition, there is no capital gains tax applied to any benefit received from the sale of these securities. Listed securities include, stocks, bonds and mutual funds.


To donate listed securities, you can obtain our form, the Letter of Direction by visiting this link:
