OUR MISSION STATEMENT We, the Community of St. Paul the Apostle Parish, are a Maltese-Canadian personal parish, founded on September 8, 1930, and administered by the Missionary Society of St. Paul. We are a faith community reflecting the gospel values of Christ, according to the teaching and tradition of the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. We serve the Maltese Community, welcoming also people from other nations. Our mission is to follow Christ by sharing our gifts of time, talent and treasure; by imitating Jesus; and by giving witness to our faith through our daily lives.

RCIA The RCIA programme caters for the needs of adults who are interested in exploring the Catholic faith and who would like to receive the Sacraments of Initiation and be admitted into full communion within the Catholic Church. The programme is generally spread out over a period of twenty-two sessions on Fridays at 7:00 pm. Please contact the Pastor.

The parish is run by the Missionary Society of St. Paul. The Paulist Missionaries seek to live out their founding charism in a world of change. We are witnessing to God’s love through our missionary commitment: in parishes, in schools, in youth centres, in migrant centres, among the poor and the needy, and in far away lands.

SACRAMENTS Baptism: Please contact the priests. Baptisms are generally held on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. Pre-Baptismal Instruction for parents and godparents is given on the last Sunday of the month at 1:00 p.m. Sacrament of Reconciliation: 30 minutes before each weekend mass. Other times by appointment. The priests are always available. First Holy Communion: First Holy Communion will be on Sunday, May 13, during the 12:00 noon mass. The children must attend the preparation classes during the year. Confirmation: Candidates for confirmation will be confirmed on Friday, May 18 , at 7:00 p.m. The candidates must attend their preparation classes and also their pre-Confirmation Retreat. Marriage: Couples planning to marry should contact one of the priests a year ahead of their marriage. A marriage preparation course is mandatory. Once a year the parish organizes a marriage preparation course. Sacrament of the Sick: This is not a sacrament that should be received at the last possible moment. It is the sacrament of the sick and not just for the dying. Please contact the priests.
