Thank you!

Thank you to all Volunteers who helped with the renovation works of Church corridors, and renovated chapel.

We still need financial support to maintain the church and to refurbish the copper roofs.

These expenses are higher than anticipated in the budget for 2021, please support this repair.  Also we could repaint the church this year. We need a formal initiative to raise these funds and I am counting on your help.

PILGRIMAGE TO ST. JOSEPH’S ORATORY.

page1image45286528

The Polish community of Montreal and surrounding areas will make a pilgrimage to St. Joseph’s Oratory in on March 12, 2022 at 1 p.m. Mass will be celebrated with a special sermon. As in past years, we will gather at the altar of Brother Andre in the Upper Basilica. With St. Joseph, Patron Saint of the Church, Canada, and the city of Montreal, we will ask for peace in the world and especially in Ukraine.

In the evening, at 7 p.m. Mass in our Parish of St. John Paul II We will begin our Lenten Retreat in the parish.

This recording comes from the premiere of the concert “JESUS”, which was presented in 2018 by the amateur choir Cantate Deo from Montreal at the church of The Resurrection of Our Lord (now St.John Paul II Parish). The concert “JESUS”, based entirely on the Bible, tells the story of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who once lived among us, healed the sick, and, who through His death, showed how much God loves us.

Music Ministry

The choir of our parish has been operating for 25 years and has released an album and recording of the Mystery Art “JESUS”. This beautiful album and recording can be purchased for distribution at Saint John Paul II Church.

We are very grateful to Brother Rudolf and the Community of Heralds of the Gospel for their services.

Our Library

 The library in our parish hall invites you to browse the book selection. Supporting the library by borrowing and reading books is a useful activity for the mind and soul.

Time spent reading is never wasted.
Mrs. Leokadia Magdziarz is a volunteer librarian for the parish Saint John Paul II. Feel free to help yourselves to any of the selections.

Parish Restoration Project

Electrical work over the statue of St. Michael the Archangel and the Chapel corridor has been completed. 

Wardrobes have been built and installed in the Sacristy.  Repairs to the main Church roof have been completed.  The Church tower now has new shingles.

We are still in need of financial support, both for the maintenance of the Church and the renovation of our copper roofs, which must be repaired as soon as possible.

Should we consider a BLITZ?  These expenses were not included in the 2021 Budget.

It would be our greatest accomplishment if we could repaint the Church and replace the burnt lights in the Sanctuary.

Free Services & Support Groups

The Synodal Process 2021-2023

Pope Francis has asked us to be part of the Synodal process 2021-2023.

Here are the Two Fundamental Questions Posed by the Universal Synod:

1.  In our diocesan Church, what is the current state of our “journeying together”, and what steps is the Spirit inviting us to take in order to grow toward this objective? Which initiatives should be maintained, continued, or reinforced? What should we consider changing, modifying, or stopping? What new steps might we initiate or create?

2.  As we listen to the world around us, what calls of the Spirit will guide our missionary action? Which initiatives should be maintained, continued, or reinforced? What should we consider changing, modifying, or stopping. What new steps might we initiate or create?

Pastoral Home Care (SASMAD/PHC)

“For more than 20 years the Archdiocese of Montreal has offered a service of spiritual accompaniment of the sick and elderly persons in their own homes, under the name SASMAD, or as it is known in English, Pastoral Home Care.

This diocesan service is confidential and free, and is made available thanks to the visits of hundreds of volunteers who have received special training.”  

Please call the Rectory (514) 637-2379 and leave the names of any sick or shut-ins that you are aware of so that they can be visited (called) by a Pastoral Home Care volunteer once a week.

Widow(er)'s Support Group

COVID19 has left us feeling quite vulnerable especially since we cannot gather even in times of loss. There is a Widow(er)s’ Support Group that meet every 1st Monday of the month.

Please contact Anne Parsons at (514) 925-4300 X 354 or LostSpouseGroup@gmail.com

Spiritual Support Line

This is available to anyone who could benefit from a listening ear.

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
