The Mission of St. Lawrence O'Toole Parish is to respond to God's call with sacramental worship, personal commitment, and community action.

While We're At It...

Dear Friends,

Well… it has begun. Our long awaited Centennial renovation of the Church.

Last Monday we closed the church for renovations and for the next few months, we’ll be holding weekend Masses in the Parish Hall, and daily Masses in the Parish Center Chapel. We’ll do our best to create an atmosphere of prayer and good worship in the Parish Hall, and hopefully we’ll be back in our newly beautified Church by Easter time.


Know someone who wants to become a Catholic? Are you a Catholic but never was confirmed?

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the program for people who, baptized or not, want to become Catholics. It is also for those who may have been baptized Catholic but never received their other sacraments.

We'll be starting a weekly program for people in these situations beginning in September and ending at Easter with full initiation into the Church.

Scripture Study News

St Lawrence O’Toole/ Sacred Heart Parishes

As we enjoy the summer months it is a good time to think about what we have done to develop a closer relationship with our Lord, Jesus. Our personal Faith is firstly based on the belief in the person of Jesus Christ and how we interact with Him. It follows then that we believe in the Church He founded with the Apostles. Our Scripture Study Programs are designed to help us know Christ by learning and understanding God’s WORD and applying it to our personal lives. We invite you to think about this and consider joining us in our weekly sessions as we study and pray together.

The Cardinal's Annual Appeal

The Apostolate of Prayer

The following are the intentions our Holy Father who wishes us to include in our prayer for the month of August:

Universal: That refugees, forced by violence to abandon their homes, may find a generous welcome and the protection of their rights.

For Evangelization: That Christians in Oceania may joyfully announce the faith to all the people of that region.
