COVID 19 UPDATE
As you know, the number of new COVID-19 cases in the Greater Toronto Area have increased significantly in recent days and, at present, Toronto and Peel Regions are in the "Lockdown Stage" as identified by the Province of Ontario. In addition, Premier Ford announced on November 20, 2020 special emergency measures that need to be taken in our area. For this reason, as of Monday, November 23rd, we must restrict attendance... Sadly, due to these measure, public Masses must be temporarily cancelled.
We will continue to celebrate and record the Mass daily. Our recordings will be available on YouTube. We will update you as the situation evolves. We pray that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. May God continue to bless you now and always!
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
And Now a Word From Our Pastor
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

Invisible Light takes us through the story of a man named Theophilus who shares with us his grief of losing his son and the struggle of living through a time of violence in Rome. He returns to the Gospel of Luke, which was dedicated to him, as a source of comfort and soon finds himself being transformed by the story of Christ's humble birth. What Theophilus soon discovers through Luke's Gospel is 'Emmanuel' come to life in some unexpected encounters leading him to see this "Invisible Light".
