Palliative Care and End-Of-Life Issues and Resources: A Catholic Perspective

Are you interested in learning about the most recent approaches to palliative and end of life care? We may be reluctant to assist our own family members or friends or deal with challenges in our own lives because we do not feel prepared to deal with these important end-of-life issues

With the approval of Cardinal Thomas Collins, St. Ignatius Loyola Parish Mississauga is proud to be one of the first of two parishes to partner with the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Toronto in an important pilot project this fall 2021.

Guided by new resources from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) 4 in- person evenings of education and discernment will be offered by our presentation team of Dr. Moira McQueen PhD, Director, Canadian Catholic Centre for Bioethics, and Shirley Christo, MHSc, MEd, Parish Nurse.

Limited to 50 participants, the dates for this series are Thursday, September 23, Thursday, September 30, Thursday October 7 and Thursday, October 14th, 2021 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in our parish hall.

Please register as soon as possible via Eventbrite!

If you are unable to attend the series after you have registered, please cancel your registration via Eventbrite so that others may attend in person. If the event is full, please join our waiting list on Eventbrite so that we can advise you in the event of cancellations or if we move to virtual on-line sessions

For more information, please see the attached information sheet.

Launch of New Parish Website/Updated Staff E-Mail Address

We are pleased to announce that we will be officially launching our new parish website https://stignatiusloyolami.archtoronto.org on Friday September 10!

It is also compliant with the new government regulations for websites according to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. While we will run both websites for a short period, the livestream of the Sunday 9 a.m. mass is even now streamed to our new parish website…so please now update your computer and devices for our new website.

At communion time we invite you to join in the following prayer:

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults Begins in September

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) for adults who would like to become Roman Catholic will begin again in September. If you or a loved one would like to consider becoming a Roman Catholic please have them speak to Fr. Tim or Fr. John after mass or contact us by e-mail or telephone to arrange for an interview.

UTM Catholic Chaplaincy Update

If you or someone you know is a university student then this announcement is for you! The UTM (University of Toronto Mississauga) Catholic Chaplaincy exists to provide a supportive community for students to learn, grow, and celebrate their Catholic faith. While many schools continue to offer online learning for this Fall Term, the increased isolation creates a deep need for authentic community. Whether you are at UTM student or a student studying remotely at another university or college, we invite you join our community. Our chaplaincy is working hard to plan safe in-person gatherings as well as virtual gatherings for those wishing to connect remotely. For more information visit our website www.utmcatholics.com... and feel free to share our website with any university-age students that may be interested in joining or learning more about our chaplaincy.

ShareLife 2021: Living the Gospel by supporting residents of long-term care

The Houses of Providence in Scarborough is a ShareLife-funded agency that provides longterm care for seniors.

“It’s been hard during COVID-19,” says Mary, one of its residents, “but we understand the precautions that staff are taking. Providence staff have been absolutely wonderful and are doing a good job. I thank them every time I see them for their hard work.”

Thank you for “living the Gospel” through our parish ShareLife campaign. Thus far we have raised just over $186,606 toward our goal of $234,600. Thank you to those who have contributed to our annual appeal. If you have not yet done so, you are invited to reflect on your ability to help those in need and make a sacrificial gift to help those who turn to our agencies for help.

Monthly Pre-Authorized Giving is a convenient way to spread your ShareLife contribution throughout the year. You can learn more about PAG through the Sharelife website. However you give, whatever you give, thank you for supporting ShareLife!

Your Financial Support is Appreciated

Thank you once again for your generosity and support of our parish community as we return to church and during Holy Week, especially by placing your envelope in the offertory basket before mass or mailing in your donations, or donating via Pre-Authorized Giving or by credit card, or single or monthly donations through the “Donate now” button at www.archtoronto.org

Please join us at the end of each mass in praying the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel:

Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
