St. Joan of Arc Parish has been serving the community since 1919 bringing the Welcome and Warmth of Christ to all who enter this house of prayer. You enter this church not as a stranger, but as a guest of God. He is your heavenly Father. Come, then, with joy in your heart and thanks on your lips into His presence, offering Him your love and service. Be grateful to the strong and loyal ones, who in the name of Jesus Christ, built this place of worship, and to all who have beautified it and hallowed it with their prayers and praise. This parish is served by the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, a religious community inspired by the Gospel to pray and work; That all may be one, that the world may believe Jn 17:21. Our parishioners recognize they are stewards of God's gifts for the good of others. Their service to the life and ministry of the parish is foundational to all that we are and do. May blessing of God rest on you, in the peace and joy of Christ.
Rev. Daniel P. Callahan, S.A., Pastor
We give thanks to you for the gifts you have given us, life family and friends, time talents and material possessions. All that we have comes from you. Help us to remember this and to rejoice in your goodness.
Walk with me my God. Help me on my spiritual journey, so that I may constantly renew my relations with you and all the good people in our parish and throughout Toronto.
Renew in us your Spirit. Give me the strength and courage to become a better follower of Jesus, to be a disciple. Help me hear the call to Come follow Me.
We give Glory to you God as we make Stewardship a way of life. Amen
