We may pray this Act of Spiritual Communion when we are not able

to be physically present at Mass:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself.

If wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul 

The virtue of charity is giving back to God.

When you get right with God, it creates a thankful heart for all He’s done. And a thankful heart is a generous heart — you want to spread God’s love to others.

Spreading God’s love to those in need is what the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is all about. We’re blessing God’s children in very tangible ways, such as supplying gift cards for food to single persons and families throughout these pandemic days—made possible by the generosity of you, our parishioners.  Thank you!

Our Society endeavours to help the less fortunate in our area with grocery gift cards and a listening ear when they call for help:

416-447-5571 Ext. 570. But our ability to respond also depends upon your continuing generosity and concern. Please take a moment to review the ways in which you can donate.  May God bless you for your kindness.

Please continue to give as you can, when you can, and if you are aware of someone in our area in need of our help, please refer them to us at:
416-447-5571 Ext. 570. Thank you!

Please consider making a donation securely online through CanadaHelps live link

Or by cheque made payable to Society of St. Vincent de Paul and mail to: Society of St. Vincent de Paul
