Fr. Patrick Ezimora
Fr. Patrick Ezimora - Associate Pastor

My name is Rev. Fr. Patrick Chidiebere Ezimora CCE. I was born in Aba, a city in South-eastern Nigeria, on December 17, 1982. I belong to a growing priestly Religious Institute, the Congregation of Christ the Emmanuel, founded in my home country by Rev. Fr. John O. Egbulefu, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at the Pontifical Urbanian University in Rome. By God’s grace, I have, since my priestly ordination on 19 November 2011, ministered in over ten parishes across two continents, preaching, administering the sacraments and teaching. I must confess that I love being a priest and I am most grateful for this most awesome Gift. Selfless service is indeed a hidden shortcut to happiness. God is good all the time! Blessings, Fr. Patrick C. Ezimora CCE

Liz Rybka

I have been a part of the St Mary’s community since my family moved to Brampton when I was a child. I did all my sacraments at the parish and when my daughter was born, she also became a part of the community. She enjoyed coming to church and after Mass she and her friends would often play together outside. Climbing the big rock was great fun for them! Today, I am still part of St. Mary’s as the Lay Pastoral Assistant. I assist those who come to the office for administrative, sacramental, and liturgical requests and offer support to the Pastor in the many facets of Sacramental preparation. Please feel free to call or stop by the office if I can be of any assistance.

I am originally from Mexico, My family and I moved to Canada in 1991 for 2 years but we fell in love with the Country so we stayed. God blessed me with two young adults and I am very proud of them. I love many things but creating memories for my family, reading, painting and designing the E-Newsletter for St. Mary's Church are at the very top of my list. As the Office Administrator, my main job is to make sure we are here for you.
