  •         Religious Education Program

    Nativity of Our Lord Parish
    offers the following religious education programs beginning September 2018:

    First Communion/First Reconciliation Program
    Sacramental preparation for First Communion & First Reconciliation is held for children of registered parishioners who are enrolled in Grade 2 and higher.

    Confirmation Program
    Sacramental preparation for Confirmation is held for children of registered parishioners enrolled in Grade 7 or older.

    Public School Religious Education Program
    Registered parishioners whose children are enrolled in the public schools are invited to register their children in this program.  This program will provide basic religion classes.

    Registration in this program is mandatory for students studying in public schools and wishing to be prepared for First Communion and students wishing to be
    prepared for Confirmation. 

    RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
    Would you or anyone you know be interested
      to be Baptized Catholic, or
      to be Received into the Catholic Church 
    (having been baptized in another faith),
      to receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist
    (First Communion) or Confirmation?

    The RCIA is the process offered in the Catholic Church for the above purposes.  It is also a process available to practicing Catholics seeking a deeper understanding of their faith.  RCIC is a similar program for children up to 16 years of age who would
    like to be baptized or received
    into the Catholic Church.
     For further information or registration
    in September, please call the Parish Office
    at 416 621 2732.
  •         Canada Summer Jobs Update

    Dear Parishioners:
      On Friday, June 1st, we received a letter from Service Canada informing us that our application for funding for 3 positions for students for the summer had been rejected. This came as no surprise, as we had been informed in advance by the Archdiocese that the federal government had refused to change their insistence that all applicants sign off on an attestation clause that both the nature of the positions and the organization’s core mandate were in full compliance with the government’s stance on abortion rights.
      In fact, 27 parishes or organizations within the Archdiocese of Toronto have also been rejected for the same reason. This will severely affect such projects as Summer Bible Camps and essential Social Outreach services that have been provided over the years.
      In recognition of our need to support our Parish Summer Bible Camp as well as to provide additional support for caretaking  projects around and within the church, we have proceeded to hire 2 students for this summer. The cost of these positions, which includes salaries and the associated mandatory benefits, is $19,000. The Archdiocese of Toronto is mandating all parishes who have been directly affected by the federal government’s position to hold a special 2nd collection. As well, unaffected parishes are strongly encouraged to hold a 2nd collection in solidarity and support of those affected parishes and organizations.
      This special collection will be held in our parish on the weekend of July 21/22, which is the weekend between the 1st and 2nd week of our Summer Bible Camp.
      Further details will be provided
    in the coming weeks.
      Thank you and bless you!
     Fr Michael Machacek

    ShareLife Update
     On behalf of the 37 Catholic agencies and organizations that are supported by ShareLife, a big thank you to the countless parishioners who donated to this year’s ShareLife campaign.

    Thank you for your generosity!  Fr. Michael.
