This committee operates in an advisory capacity with the Pastor in matters concerning major repairs and renovations of the church and rectory facilities. A general knowledge of plumbing and carpentry is helpful.
This ministry consists of a group of parishioners who work together with the pastoral team on matters concerning the planning of church decorations for the various liturgical seasons, celebrations and parish events.
Members of this committee meet on an ad hoc basis in response to requests for assistance from the Archdiocese. They are asked to help refugee families fleeing from their country to relocate in Canada and specifically in Brampton. Members’ time and talents are needed to raise funds, to find living accommodations, and to ensure that “our new families” have access to the necessities of life.
As Christians we cherish the gift of life. St. Mary's Parish celebrates the gift of life every day in prayer, penance, adoration and the celebration of Mass. Our Respect for Life group meets bi-monthly to pray, reflect and discuss our Catholic faith. As a Christian community we participate in “Life Chain”, 40 Days for Life, and March for Life. We respect Our Father’s gift in all capacities as vessels of The Holy Spirit. St. Mary's Respect for Life group meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Please join us.

They arrange for guest speakers from various agencies to speak about the good work and many charities supported by Sharelife.
