Did You Know

Catholic Schools

You should encourage everyone you know to register their children in Catholic schools. The children are taught to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and in others. This reverence for people permeates all aspects of their life.


Confession

One Precept (law) of the Church is that you shall confess your sins at least once per year.


Saint Bartholomew

Saint Bartholomew was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus. He was previously called Nathaniel. Little is known about him and his name almost always appears with Philip. He was named as one who witnessed the Ascension. Jesus immediately characterizes him as "Here is a man in whom there is no deception.". What a legacy for us to follow!!


Feast of St. Michael, the Archangel

Cardinal Collins has declared that on Sunday, September 29th 2013, the feast of St. Michael, the Archangel, is to be celebrated throughout the Archdiocese of Toronto. He had also issued a decree granting a plenary indulgence for those who, "on the feast day of St. Michael, the Archangel, participate in the Holy Mass or in the Liturgy of the Hours adding the Profession of Faith in any legitimate form, at any church."
