Parish Pastoral Council

The Parish Pastoral Council consists of a group of people who act as a consultative body serving the Pastor in the spirit of mutual appreciation, charity and dialogue. The Council does not manage the parish but brings an important voice to all pastoral activities. The responsibilities of the Council include collaborating to build the parish as a living, witnessing Christian Community by offering opinions and making suggestions for enhancing pastoral care of the parish. The activities of the Council should encourage the development of Christian life and the engagement of the parish in bringing spiritual and material assistance and the gospel message to everyone in its community. It is in this spirit that our Parish Council has served from the very beginning, especially during the early years of creating a community, building the church and the John Paul II Centre, and the era of the “Renew” program and the integration of a massive wave of immigration from Poland to Canada. The present composition of the Parish Pastoral Council reflects the current needs of our parish and its pastoral leadership team.

Finance Committee

In accordance with Canon Law and the recommendations of the apostolic exhortation „Christifideles laici” of John Paul II, lay Catholics serve the parish with their experience and professional knowledge in matters of finance, administration and asset management. The purpose of the Parish Finance Committee is to assist the Pastor in the administration of parish temporal matters. The Pastor is obliged to seek advice and consultation from the Finance Committee in matters such as hiring permanent and temporary staff, building, renovation or demolition of properties, material change to dedicated use of property, and parish finances. The Parish Finance Committee functions in accordance with norms issued by the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Church Committee – Ushers

The Church Committee is among the most important organizations in our parish community. It is comprised of men and women who have been called to serve in our church in a special way, following in the footsteps of Christ, who came not to be served, but to serve others. Members of the Church Committee are recognized and respected as the public face of our parish community, welcoming us as we enter the church, providing assistance to the elderly and those with special needs, collecting offerings during Holy Mass and keeping things running in an orderly fashion at all parish events. Members of the Church Committee collaborate with and support other parish groups, demonstrating their commitment and dedication.
