Parish Bulletin

Holy Mass Intentions

We invite you to order intentions for this year at Ms. Kasia’s office hours (Tel: 514 6372379) and on Sunday at Ms. Ewa’s sacristy.

Parish Restoration Project

Electrical work on the statue of St. Michael the Archangel and before the Sacristy have been completed, for which I offer a great God Bless for Kazimierz Kręglicki and to those who helped in the work: Adam Marcinkowski, the Grabkowski family.
The wall around the figure of St. Michael the Archangel.
Gentlemen Andrzej Rudziński and his son Szymon built another wardrobe in the sacristy for altar boys. God bless you.
We put a lot of effort into completing the repair of the entire church roof and the companies pledged to complete the two flat roofs above the sacristy this spring. The entire roof area, including the church tower, has new sheathing and company guarantees.
In this difficult time of the pandemic, we need special financial support, both for the maintenance of the church and the renovation of copper roofs, which must be repaired in the spring. As these expenses were not included in the budget for 2021,  I am asking you to support this special repair so that we can already plan the repainting of the Church this year.
I need your initiative to raise these funds, and I am counting on you very much.

Free Services & Support Groups

Development & Peace :

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us in many ways here in Canada. In the Global South, the impacts are devastating, as the pandemic is worsening poverty, hunger, conflict and gender inequality. Our Quebec Bishops have agreed for parishes in Montreal to support a special collection for Development and Peace. 

 More than ever, your solidarity and generosity are needed to support the work of Development and Peace so we are all recovering together.

The partners of Development and Peace are working for a just recovery in countries such as Peru, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Somalia and Haiti so that all can live in dignity. 

 Development and Peace – Caritas Canada needs your support! You can help in three ways:

  1. By donating to the collection at Saint John Paul II Parish.  
  2. By donating online at https://www.devp.org
  3. By becoming a monthly donor:  https://www.devp.org/en/donate/givemonthly
