Jesus prepares for Passover, for passing over into the design of his Father's plan. On a beast of burden he enters Jerusalem, carrying the burdens of his people. He is hailed as King, but he knows his kingdom is not of this world. The journey to Jerusalem will take him to Calvary. The weight of our sins which he graciously bears will be set down only at the cost of his life. Let us accompany our Lord Jesus with heavy hearts and in solidarity in this Holy Week of "compassion", which means "suffering with" our Saviour.

Family of Faith is an unprecedented effort that will strengthen, inspire and transform the Archdiocese of Toronto and its 225 parishes.
In a few short months, St. Patrick’s has raised over $2,517,570 from just 659 parish families. We have surpassed our goal by $1,000,000 which means the parish now retains 75% of every dollar pledged. St. Patrick’s is excited to use these funds for relocating the rectory to a residence within walking distance of the church and re-configuring our current rectory and office space in order to expand our meeting space. For anyone who has not had the chance to make a pledge, forms are available at the back of the Church and in the Parish Office. Thank you for your generosity.
