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 PARISH - CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

Our Parish officially began the Capital Campaign on the weekend September 28th/29th.

 

Some facts about the campaign ... 

75% of funds raised by our Parish will stay in our Parish to be used for projects here

10% of funds raised here will be shared with parishes in need around the Diocese. 

15% of funds raised here will assist the Diocese in various shared ministries – university chaplaincy; spiritual care in hospitals & prisons; and care for migrant workers. 

Our goals and proposed projects are outlined in the mailing you’ll receive in the coming weeks. The amount requested is NOT a demand or an expectation. It is an invitation to participate in this project at whatever level that is sacrificial and meaningful to you and your family. We will be grateful for any support you offer. Donations can be made in the form of monthly debits from your bank account or credit card; post‐dated cheque; lump sum donations or transfer of stocks or shares.

GOSPEL OF MATTHEW - BIBLE STUDY

Ready to go deeper into Scripture? 

You are invited to join us this fall for Bible Study on Gospel of Matthew presented by Fr. Jamroz. We meet every second Friday at 7.00PM (check the online calendar). All are welcome at any time of the course, even if you do not have books. 

Each session includes an explanation and discussion of the questions from the study guide, and teaching video. The goal of this course (which consists of 9 sessions) is to give a deeper understanding of the Gospel of Matthew as we will read this Gospel at Masses during the coming Liturgical Year (Year A). 

For more information please contact Evelyn Suva at  benevelyn22@gmail.com or call the parish office 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 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.
