Church Picnic and Family Fun Day A Great Success

Our 9th Annual Church Picnic and Family Fun Day took place on Sunday September 13th at the magnificent grounds of the Ignatius Jesuit Centre.   The festivities began with an open air Mass at 1:00 pm, followed by games, music, food and fun for all ages. Despite the cool weather on Picnic Day, all 225+ attendees had a great time.  Each year we have many fun and exciting activities, including the annual Bocci and Euchre tournaments. The band “The Musicmakers” were back by popular demand, and played some lively, sing-a-long music all afternoon.


Report on the Mass of Thanksgiving and Altar Dedication

After many months of construction, the Church renovations are finally complete, and a Mass of Thanksgiving and Altar Dedication marking the completion  took place on the Feast of Our Lady Immaculate on Monday, December 8th, 2014.  

The Church was filled to capacity with parishioners as well as many dignified guests, including His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins, Most Reverend Bishops Douglas Crosby, Anthony Tonnos, and Matthew Ustrzycki.  Also attending were former Parish Pastor Reverend Ted Hughes, Sister Elaine Weinstein, as well as many other Priests and Deacons from the diocese, and members of the Knights of Columbus.
