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.

Let us pray

Heavenly Father,
Author and Inspirer of all things holy.
We thank you for the gift of this church
filled with the power of your Word and Sacrament.
Send forth your Spirit.
Guide and protect those who are constructing our church.
As we gather in your name,
touch our hearts with generosity
so that we may raise up a house of God
for the proclamation of your Kingdom
Gracious God,
You call us to be your Church
Help us to become a true community that will witness and proclaim,
celebrate and share,
the hope and charity we have in Jesus Christ,
as exemplified by St. Josephine Bakhita,
our universal sister and model of hope.
Through her intercession,
and of Mary, our Mother of Charity at the foot of the Cross,
we ask this in Jesus' name.
