Mission Preacher – August 18-19, 2018

Every year, each parish in the Archdiocese is invited to host a mission preacher. This year St. Peter’s will be hosting Father Paul Leon Varuvel from the diocese of Kuzhithurai in south India. This area was evangelized by St. Francis Xavier in the 16th Century. Kuzhithurai has only existed as a separate diocese since 2014. There is much need of our support in this newly established diocese. Please give generously to assist our Christian brothers and sisters in Kuzhithurai.

Scripture Writing Club

For the last four years a group has met regularly at 830 Bathurst street (The Parish Centre) to discuss our lives in the light of Scripture Readings. We wrote about aspects of our lives and shared our stories. This came to a culmination when a book containing some of these stories was published recently. Sr. Mary Rose has decided to retire from this ministry. Some of us would like to continue. If you would be interested in joining this group please contact the parish office at 416-534-4219.

Fall Fair 2018 Event Committee

We are having a meeting for anyone who would like to volunteer to help with this event. Past volunteers and new volunteers are encouraged to attend this meeting. The meeting will provide information about the tasks that will need to be completed and provide opportunity for the community to ask any questions and/or suggestions they may have regarding this year’s event and also vote on the appropriate date for this year’s fair. The meeting will be held on Thursday August 16, 2018 at 7pm in the St. Paul’s Classroom, in the centre. If you are unable to attend and would like to volunteer feel free to contact the church office via email or phone to be added to the list. We look forward to seeing as many people as possible to make this event a success.
