Visitors and New Parishioners

New parishioners are asked to contact the office at 416-261-5983
Greetings and peace to all. Since we cannot meet each other in the usual way that new parish priests introduce themselves to their new parishioners and parishes, as we have adapted in so many other ways during the coronavirus, we are adapting with this bulletin intro. My name is Fr. Peter Marr. I was born in Toronto and was baptised at St Clare’s Parish and raised in a family of eight children in Oakville. I am coming to St. Boniface Parish after eleven years serving on the formation faculty at St. Augustine’s Seminary. So, we have already been neighbours for a long time. My coming to St. Boniface Parish is a return to parish ministry, something that is close to the heart of every diocesan priest’s desire. Parish ministry reflects the gift of family life: loving, sharing, forgiving, accepting, and learning the beauty and wonder of every human person as we all make our own journey to God’s kingdom together. My most treasured gift in life has been the place where I learned the most about how to love – family life. Parish life is where I am most happy to continue to make that same journey with you, learning and sharing together God’s greatest gifts for us in the sacraments, in prayer and praise , and in parish and community life together. I am looking forward to getting to know you as we share the journey of faith together.
Greetings! My name is Fr. Neiman D’Souza and I am all types of excited to be the new associate pastor of St. Boniface Parish! Why? Bro, the East Side is like the best side and its good to be back in Scarborough! Although culturally I am East Indian, I was born in Kuwait before moving to Canada with my family in the late 80s. I grew up in Markham and Scarborough, north and south of Steeles Ave. I graduated from the York Catholic District School Board. Ordained for the Archdiocese of Toronto as part of the epic class of 2014, this is my third parish assignment. I served at St. Patrick’s Parish in Markham for almost two years and then at St. Joseph’s Parish in Streetsville for almost four years. I may seem serious at mass, but I am also serious about other things too, like WWE/AEW, Star Trek and punishing my body with Chicken Biryani and Mutton Rolls. I am excited to serve with zeal, for 2 Thess 3:1 is quite clear: “Anyone unwilling to work should not eat.” (NRSV) I am looking forward to meeting you, so be there, be aware, and be excited!
Volunteer Training for the pews that have been reinstalled
Greetings! This is Fr. Neiman, Associate Pastor here at St. Boniface Parish!
Thank you for your offer to volunteer with the sanitization of our parish after Sunday masses. Many of you are veterans, but there are some that are new to volunteering in this specific role. We are grateful for your service that will continue to allow our parishioners to worship in a safe and comfortable way. We need volunteers to arrive early to help escort parishioners to their seats prior to mass as well as how to sanitize the space after mass. We have created a short video to help get ourselves organized as to how we can efficiently sanitize the pews and worship space.
Thank you once again for your assistance with this.
Sincerely excited in Christ,
A Message from our Cardinal
