And Now a Word From Our Pastor

UPDATE- November 22, 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

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 keep you updated 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

CWL - Good Shepherd Christmas Bags

In past years, our members have been incredibly generous with their donations and participation during our preparation and distribution of Christmas gift bags to those in need. This year, due to the pandemic and all the restrictions we face, the Good Shepherd Ministry will be preparing bags that will be distributed to 100 homeless men who have been residing in their shelters since the onset of the pandemic. Good Shepherd has provided us with a list of needed items.


This year, since dropping off the items yourselves is not an option, in lieu of supplying them, we encourage you if you so wish to make a donation and our executive council will purchase the items that will be included in the Christmas bags. We will deliver them to Good Shepherd staff who will in turn distribute them to those in need.


To make a donation, please make cheques payable to St. Bonaventure CWL  and mail cheques to:

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul 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.

Please consider making a donation by placing an envelope directed to SSVP in the collection box at the back of the Main Hall while at Mass or by mail. Cheques are made payable to Society of St. Vincent de Paul and tax receipts are available to those who identify themselves. Mail to:
