We have successfully launched our One-Million-Dollar Capital Campaign! Most of you have received a beautiful brochure with the pledge form for your donation. As you will read in the brochure, the money raised will help to repair the bell tower, completely restore our 1928 Casavant organ and carry out required renovations to the church’s interior. We are counting on your generosity to help us achieve our objective. No donation is too small or too large!
Extra copies of the brochure and pledge form are available at the doors of the church.
Thanksgiving Food Drive
We invite you to continue the tradition of feeding the hungry through weekly donations of non-perishable food items by supporting our special Thanksgiving Food Collection throughout the month of October. Donations can be left in the bins located to the right of the main Altar or at the back of the church. They will be brought to St. Willibrord’s Food Bank to be distributed to the needy.
We appreciate your consideration and generosity.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food” (Matthew 25:35) We have a new tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a more continuous basis. Bring one non-perishable food item to Mass every weekend which will be sent to the foodbanks. Donations can be left at the back of the church and will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s parish food bank. A list of suggestions for nutritious non-perishable items is posted below.
Keep in mind that over 860,000 Canadians visit food banks every month, with over 36% of the donations feeding hungry children.
