From “Hosanna” on Palm Sunday, through “Crucify Him” on Good Friday to “He is Risen” on Easter, we’ve entered once more into the story of Jesus. We’ve recognized our story in His and His story in ours. In this strange time, through ups and downs, joys and sorrows, frustrations and hopes, Jesus has been with us. I, Fr. Peter, the Friars and Staff of St. Bonaventure offer you our prayers for Easter. May your faith be rekindled, your hope be renewed and your love be deepened through the re-telling and re-living of His story. It’s message is ever-ancient, ever-new: Jesus Christ Risen is God with us- always. Happy Easter.
Fr. Dennis

A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR

Praised be Jesus Christ. Now and forever. Amen.

Praised be Jesus Christ. Now and forever. Amen.Mary, Virgin Most Prudent, Pray for Us.
Thank You and God bless. We keep one another in prayer.
With love and a prayer
Fr. Dennis

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

YES LORD!

ShareLife: Supporting mental health in our community
ShareLife Sunday is April 18th.


In this time of Lent, please reflect on the great needs of our brothers and sisters who are helped through your generous support of ShareLife. Last year, generous ShareLife supporters enabled 21,000 people to receive affordable mental health care through family service agencies across the Archdiocese of Toronto, including our community. Please give generously.  

 

 

Share Love, Share Lent:

Keeping Canadians Committed

 

Did you know that advocacy by Development and Peace members resulted in several schools, parishes and municipal offices across Canada giving up bottled water?

Join our Share Love, Share Lent campaign to celebrate the many ways in which Canadian Catholics show that they care for social, economic and environmental justice.

To help make a difference, get your MP to commit to building back better from the pandemic. Visit devp.org/lent to learn more.
