The Bonnie News
While we're at home, we want to share some parish news!

We commend to the Lord the members of our parish who have died since November 2019. 

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

And Now A Word From The Pastor ...
As you know, the number of new COVID-19 cases in the Greater Toronto Area have increased significantly in recent days and, at present, Toronto and Peel Regions are in the “Lockdown Stage” as identified by the Province of Ontario. In addition, Premier Ford announced on November 20, 2020 special emergency measures that need to be taken in our area. For this reason, as of Monday, November 23rd, we must restrict attendance...Sadly, due to these measures, public Masses must be temporarily cancelled. 

We will continue to celebrate and record the Mass daily. Our recordings will be available on YouTube. We will keep you updated as the situation evolves. We pray that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy.  May God continue to bless you now and always!

Advent Retreat

Jesuits are known for their distinctive spirituality. St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, developed a way of praying that helps people “find God in all things.” Ignatian spirituality is grounded in the conviction that God is active in our world. The spiritual path laid out by Ignatius is a way of discerning God’s presence in our everyday lives.

For more information and for the video recordings of the sessions, visit their website:

  • Nov. 17 – St. Ignatius of Loyola, with Scott Lewis, SJ
  • Nov. 24 – Ignatian Spirituality, with Bernard Carrière, SJ
  • Dec.1 – The Spiritual Exercises, with Joseph Schner, SJ
  • Dec.8 – Ignatian Values: Hope, Reconciliation & Justice, with Peter Bisson, SJ
