Development and Peace Ministry

This ministry is looking for young adults (ages 16-30) who would be interested in joining them and/or helping out with some events. They promotes the protection of children from disaster, conflict and trafficking through fundraising, on-the-ground charity and knowledge/awareness. If you are interested in helping, please contact our parish office.


If you want to become a Catholic or are a Catholic who have not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation or just want to reconnect with your faith, please call or email our parish office to register for the RCIA Program.  If you know someone who might be interested, please reach out to them and invite them to join the course.  Although we started last Saturday (Sept 9th), you are still very welcome to join.  We will give you more details after registration.

PREP (Parish religious education program)

PREP is for children in Gr. 1 to Gr. 7 in the public school system or a non-Catholic school.  The Program will start next Tues Sept. 19 in the Holy Cross Church basement and the School building.
