Weekly gatherings for high school students
Putting our faith into action !
Special group gatherings for families and youth
KIDZONE – Babysitting
From September to June the parish employs trained and certified high school youth to run our KIDZONE during the 9 and 11 am Masses. This ministry helps young ones from infants to 3 years old enjoy games and toys in a safe environment while allowing parents to attend Mass and spend time in worship. Parents can register children at the weekend Masses.
Sunday Friends – Sundays 9 & 11 am Masses
This faith-centred program for children in junior kindergarten to grade 2 is offered at the 9:00 am. and 11:00 am Sunday Masses. The children learn about the liturgy of the day, pray, sing and make a simple craft related to the Gospel reading. Adult and high school leaders are needed and are scheduled regularly. Materials and training are provided for volunteers.
Family Movie Nights
Every month the parish hosts a “Family Movie Night.” This free event gathers families together for a great and recently released movie. The night includes popcorn, cookies and juice while enjoying the movie on a large screen. An amazing Friday night for all !!
Youth & Adult Altar Servers
All of our Sunday Masses are beautiful celebrations because of the amazing youth and adult altar servers we have. Open to children starting in grade 1 our altar servers are key ministers in making our Masses amazing celebrations of faith. In addition to training sessions, the youth altar servers gather for a number of different faith and social activities to grow as faithful and loving disciples.
Faith In Action Team (FIAT)
FIAT is a student lead faith leadership group inspired by Mary’s FIAT promoting faith building opportunities within the parish school and home. It is an amazing youth ministry program coordinated by the London District Catholic School Board in association with parishes. Students from grades 3 to 8 from our 3 Catholic elementary schools participate in various faith and family events.
Family & Youth Special Events
Throughout the year we have many special events for our families and young people. This includes our Advent LIGHT UP FOR CHRIST event, monthly parish breakfasts hosted by our Knights of Columbus, our annual parish festival called MEGAFEST that takes place at East Park each August and so much more. Stay connected with family and youth ministry events by signing up to the email list found at the bottom of your screen.
Summer Kids Camp
Each summer we host about 100 campers for a week of joy and delight at Summer Kids Camp. Registration usually opens each year after March break and it fills up quickly. We are always looking for volunteers so connect with us via the volunteer sign up form by clicking the link below.
Be a part of something amazing. This is a weekly gathering for high school students most Wednesdays throughout the school year. Each night we will come together for some fellowship and fun. Most evenings we will break off into small groups where we will be able to share our lives together and grow as disciples. Every six weeks or so we will have a big community night full of crazy, fun activities. Discipleship is not a program – it is an apprenticeship in the Christian life.

Steubenville Toronto is a youth conference where thousands of young Catholics gather together, discovering the richness of the Catholic Church and encountering the truth of Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament.
