Advent Day Retreat

Event Date: 
Saturday, December 14, 2019 - 9:00am - 3:00pm

Don't miss this amazing opportunity for an advent retreat with Mother Olga of the Sacred Heart, Founder of the Daughters of Mary of Nazareth. The theme of this Advent retreat is Anticipating God's promises: God’s promises are like a treasure chest. Through our Baptism we gain a vast wealth of spiritual riches that are at our disposal throughout our life journey. The Bible is filled with God’s promises. But the most important thing to remember is not how many there are, but the fact that God keeps every single one for each one of us.

Advent Retreat

Event Date: 
Saturday, December 14, 2019 - 9:30am

Father Charles Anang will explore the profound depths of the Christian's identity and sublime destiny. Through baptism, he has become the temple of the indwelling Holy Spirit, so as to share in Christ's sonship of the Father. The new child of the Father is to become a new Christ: "We are no longer two people, Jesus and I; we are just one: Jesus alone" (Blessed Dina Bélanger). This reflection offers an opportunity to deepen our relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Holy Mass at St. Augustine's venerable chapel is included with registration. Feel free to invite friends and family to join us on this day.

COST: $50, includes lunch

Caroling--Jesuits

Event Date: 
Saturday, December 21, 2019 - 12:00pm - 4:00pm

An invitation to a fun outreach activity on the Saturday before Christmas. We will be traveling to the Jesuit Infirmary in Pickering with Fr John to sing Christmas carols to the retired and sick Jesuit priests.

It's a great way to spread a little holiday cheer and show that we still care. This is the second year we are doing this and last year was a lot of fun.

Maria and Romel will be leading the music! Transportation will be provided to and from the Church (Our Lady of Lourdes Church).

We are also looking for some help if anyone would like to assist in putting together some snacks/refreshments that we can share with the Fathers. Or if anyone has a car and could help drive.

PS - event is being led by Young Adults, but it's open to anyone - Aunties / Titas are more than welcome.

Hope to see you there!
