Start preparing for Confirmation

Before Jesus was put to death, He promised His followers that He would send His Spirit to comfort and strengthen them. The Sacrament of Confirmation is the final Sacrament of initiation, an excellent time for a young Catholic and their family to grow in faith and renew their Catholic commitment. At St. Joseph Church, those Catholics who are in grade seven or older are invited to begin the preparation process for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Put your empties to good use

Image description

Each year, the Knights of Columbus give thousands of dollars away to different charities and special needs. Much of what is given comes from an ongoing bottle collection program that everyone can participate in.


Knowing how this program helps many, the Knights of Columbus are grateful to all those who support this effort especially during the challenges of the past year when some traditional sources of revenue have been interrupted. A single bottle may not seem like a lot, but every bit of assistance helps sponsor worthy causes.


Empties can be put into the collection box found at the rear of our church beneath the red stairs any time. Vivat Jesus and God Bless.

The Institute aims to assist in the formation of the laity by offering a range of academic programs and spiritual formation events. In this mission, the Institute aligns with the appeal of the Archdiocese of Toronto’s Pastoral Plan to promote education, catechesis, and formation in faith and holiness for those in all areas of society; to form and train those engaged in the intellectual apostolate, and to support an effective social outreach of justice and love.
