Have a safe and enjoyable summer holiday. While you are away, the parish will continue to celebrate daily and Sunday Masses. Sadly, the bills do not take a holiday and still need to be paid for your Parish Church. Please continue to support your Parish Church throughout the summer. Happy Holidays!!!
The Parish Office will be closed on Friday, July 1, Canada Day. Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 am in the Church. There will be no adoration on that day.
Please note that the office will also be closed on Tuesday, July 5, due to a planning day.
This past year, Father Thomas Lim lived in residence at St. Peter’s as he taught a full course load at St. Augustine’s Seminary. While he was in residence, he assisted many weekends and filled in when needed. As of June 30th, 2022, Fr. Thomas Lim has been appointed pastor of St. Lawrence the Martyr Parish in Scarborough and he will continue to teach part time at St. Augustine’s Seminary. Thank you Father Thomas for your presence and assistance !! You will be missed. We pray that you are blessed in your new ministry at St. Lawrence the Martyr Parish.
Cardinal Collins reminds us that, and I quote:
“Our faith community has always responded heroically to the needs around us, particularly through our enthusiastic support of ShareLife. We can help alleviate the suffering of those whose lives have been upended by the pandemic. Let us say yes to Jesus’ call to live the Gospel by providing for those in need.” End of quote.
To date our parish has raised $42000 toward our goal of $32,927.40. Thank you for supporting ShareLife!

ShareLife agencies need your support now, more than ever
One the agencies you support through ShareLife is Catholic Cross cultural Services.
The agency appreciates your help and recently wrote:
“The pandemic has affected the newcomer and refugee communities we serve greatly and brought on multiple challenges to their access to much needed culturally sensitive services. CCS was able to ensure uninterrupted access to services, information, and support for women, mental health and settlement services to those ineligible for any other services due to their immigration status.”
For some agencies, ShareLife is the sole funder of their programs. Thanks to your support, no one is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
Our goal this year is $42,000. To date we have achieved $31,265.10.
If you have not yet donated and wish to, you can do so online on the parish website or at Sharelife.org.
Please give generously.
