And Now a Word From Our Pastor

UPDATE- October 11, 2020

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



Transitus Service. Saturday, October 3rd.  Please join the Friars and Secular Franciscans as we celebrate the custom of recounting the life and death of St. Francis Assisi on October 3rd. This year because of the Covid pandemic it will be virtual Transitus Service. There will be a link on our Website starting anytime on October 3rd and for the rest of the following week.

 Also because of the pandemic we will not be hosting a blessing of the animals this year. Below is a blessing you may use for your pet. 

Franciscan Animal Blessings 

Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air, and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this pet.
By the power of your love,
enable [him or her] to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you
for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.



Linda's Walk is on Saturday, October 17, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Linda's Walk will be a little different this year. We will still be walking 5Km through Don Mills but we will feature staggered start times for walkers, as well as a virtual (walk-at-home) option. The staggered start times allow walkers to physically participate in the walk while also continuing to social distance. The physical walk begins and ends at St. Bonaventure Church, Parish Centre.

The virtual walk option allows participants to complete the walk at their own convenience and speed wherever they live. Where can you virtually walk? Anywhere! Trails, treadmills, or even your backyard. Just be sure to stay safe! To participate in either the physical walk or the virtual walk, participants can register by calling us at 416-690-0330.

Participants can also register on our website at

Registration Fees: $25/adults; $15/youth; Free/12 & under

A free face mask is included with your registration!



News From The Society of St. Vincent de Paul 

Since March12, through to September 30, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has been assisting those in need through the pandemic. During this period we have made 59 physically distanced visits with a total of $4,685 worth of grocery gift cards (and other necessities ) to 10 adult males, 22 adult women and 14 children under 18.

The SSVP is grateful for the continuing monetary support from our parishioners. Without your help we would be unable to assist our neighbours who are hungry, isolated and who need  to know that God loves them.

 If you have not returned to mass yet, please mail your donation in to the parish office. Cheques are made payable to Society of St. Vincent de Paul and tax receipts are available to those who identify themselves. Mail to:
Society of St. Vincent de Paul

1300 Leslie St.
Toronto, ON  M3C 2K9


The Friars will celebrate Mass privately every day for the intentions of the parishioners.

The church  and the office will be closed during the health emergency.
