St. Bonaventure Feast Day, July 15

Prayer to St. Bonaventure

St. Bonaventure, your insights into the Mystery of God

move us to praise.

From you we learn of the Goodness of the Father

Who gives Himself to His Son.

We discover the Love of the Father and Son Who give

Themselves to the Holy Spirit.

You share with us the vision of God as a Community

of Three Persons united as One God.

You assure us that Father, Son and Spirit draw us

into Their life of Goodness and Love.

St. Bonaventure, pray for us, the members of the

parish that bears your name.

Grant us faith, hope and charity

To enjoy and share the Goodness and Love of our God.

Prayer for Summertime


Loving God, Creator of all times and places, we thank you for the gift of summertime, the days of light, warmth and leisure.

Thank you for the beauty that surrounds us everywhere we look: the multi-colored flowers, the deep blue of the sky, the tranquil surface of lakes, the laughter of children at play, people strolling in parks, families gathered around picnic tables and the more time to spend with family and friends.

As we open our eyes and ears to the landscape of nature and people, open our hearts to receive all as gift. Give us that insight to see you as the Divine Artist. Help us to realize and appreciate that you are laboring to keep all in existence. Warm our souls with the awareness of your presence.

Let all the gifts we enjoy this summer deepen our awareness of your love so that we may share this with others and enjoy a summertime of re-creation.


Prayer for the Ukraine

prepared by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

God of peace and justice,

We pray for the people of Ukraine today.

We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.

We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,

that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.

We pray for those with power over war or peace,

for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.

Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at-risk and in fear,

that you would hold and protect them.

We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.



A Prayer for the Synod

Lord Jesus Christ, Shed the light of Your Holy Spirit among us. We seek to do the will of Our Father. Jesus, grant us the grace to listen for Your voice as we listen to one another.

Guide us as we walk the road of the Gospel together.

We ask these graces of You, Jesus, Who live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul

When we give to the poor, God indeed pours his love, peace and joy into our hearts, into our lives and into the hearts of those who are poor.

A Member of Parliament recently remarked, “Inflation is theft of the poor.”  In other words, inflation hurts the least affluent among us the most:  for instance, those on low fixed incomes and those whose employment is casual and part time.  As we all cope with the inconvenience and even hardship of the rising cost of just about everything, please remember the less fortunate who struggle to pay their rent and utilities, as well as buy nutritious food for themselves and their families.

Thank you to our loyal benefactors who have continued their donations throughout the pandemic; to those parishioners who contributed clothing and footwear during our recent Bundle Weekend; and to all who remember our Poor Boxes.  Every donation allows Vincentians to assist our neighbours in need with grocery gift cards.

Our confidential helpline is: 416-447-5571 ext. 570 for those who need assistance. Thank you!
Online donations can be made securely through the following link:
