Welcome!

Have recourse trustfully to God's loving kindness and He will not forsake you … Though you may have had the misfortune to offend Him, He is always ready to receive you …”

- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque 

ANNUAL BIBLE SUNDAY

Join us SUNDAY, JANUARY 26, 2020, at 7:00 PM in the Hearth Room, for Annual Bible Sunday. Dr. Eldon Tunks, Emeritus Prof. Psychiatry, will present the Bible Study, “Wind, Water, and Fire.” He will demonstrate how these themes come alive in the Old Testament, and carry through the New Testament and Gospels. This will help us to deepen our understanding of the Scriptures, our experience of the Real Presence in the Eucharist, and our awareness of God in our lives.

ST MARGARET MARY PARISH - CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

We are grateful to all parishioners who have responded so generously to the campaign in carrying for our parish and helping others in our Diocese. 

We are closing in on our goal and we ask those who have been contemplating responding to this campaign to join the parish community and commit a gift at any level. Your gift and sacrifice will move the parish closer to our goal and support the important initiatives of the parish. Pledge envelops are available in the narthex of the church and for further information we would welcome your call to the parish office at 905 388 2200.

Born and raised in Poland, Fr. Pawel Jamroz graduated from Jagiellonian University in Krakow and worked as a teacher and journalist. Inspired by St. John Paul II, he discovered his vocation by meeting wonderful and dedicated priests. The most influential for him was his professor Rev. Joseph Tischner, a charismatic Polish priest and philosopher. 

Fr. Jamroz accomplished his theological studies at St. Peter’s Seminary, London, and was ordained to the presbyterate on May 6, 2017. He holds MA in literature, MPhil, MDiv, and MTS. He has served two years as an Associate Pastor at Blessed Sacrament Church in Kitchener. 

In his priestly ministry his desire is to assist people in their searching for hope and meaning. He doesn’t have favorite saints as he declares (with a smile) “I prefer sinners.” 

ARE YOU NEW TO THE PARISH?

We would enjoy the chance to get know you and share some of our enthusiasm for our mission as a church. Please consider contacting Father Pawel Jamroz via email or phone to set up a time to meet. Sharing a bit of your story and faith with Father will help to begin to build a relationship with our church. We want you here and value personal connections!

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR MISSION WORK IN HAITI

An important part of any parish is reaching out to make a difference in the world. One way that we have done this is through our mission work with St. Gabriel Parish in Beau Sejour, Haiti. Over the past 10 years we have raised more than $400,000 CDN to support various initiatives, including hurricane relief and a substantial commitment to education. Already our focus on education is begining to bear fruit for the Beau Sejour community. Stay tuned for upcoming stories of graduates sharing how they have benefited from our support and where they are giving back.
