Building Bakhita as a Family of Faith

Rectory: 3600 Forest Bluff Crescent, Mississauga, ON L5N 7W2 Tel. (289) 997-2105 Fax (289) 997-2104

Our Model of hope and charity, St. Josephine Bakhita, reminds us that we are actively part of God’s plan. We must heed to God’s call to gather His people and show His Love to the world. As a parish family, let us come together as the Master desires and raise up the first church in Canada under the name of St. Josephine Bakhita.
Our Mission

The Mission of the Parish is to be a Catholic, multicultural community of faith, called to witness and proclaim, to celebrate and share the Hope and Charity we have in Jesus Christ as exemplified by St. Josephine Bakhita, our “Universal Sister” (John Paul II) and “Model of Hope” (Benedict XVI).

We are a people who weave together this neighbourhood as:

  • A community of faith, committed to live the Greatest Love of Jesus Christ Crucified, and Mary, Mother of Charity at the foot of the Cross.
  • A community of prayer, nourished by the Word of God, the Eucharist, and the traditions of the Church, reflected in the way we live and celebrate.
  • A community that welcomes every woman and man, child and youth, of all cultures, to equal discipleship in Jesus Christ.
  • A community that is missionary, open to the needs of the world, committed to the promotion of justice, peace, and the stewardship of creation.
  • A community that is not afraid to face its pain and yet deeply trust “in the hope that saves.”

We believe that each one [of us] is called to be the strand that God will use to weave a tapestry in this place; a tapestry that will be intricate and exquisite.
In St. Josephine Bakhita we find an outstanding witness to God’s fatherly love and a bright sign of the enduring value of the Beatitudes. In our time, when the race for power, money, and pleasure causes distrust, violence and loneliness, the Lord is giving us St. Josephine Bakhita as the universal sister, so that she may reveal to us the secret of the truest happiness: the Beatitudes.”
Pope John Paul II
