Welcome to Christ the King Parish
/ Paroisse Christ-Roi
We are here to support you.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, the material, emotional, and spiritual health of our community remains our top priority. Offices are closed to the public, and all on-site Masses, events, and meetings have been cancelled until further notice. Our buildings are closed, but our Church family is not closed—this is our chance to be the Church! You can connect with our community online or by phone for support and growth.
Share Your Testimony
Just as Fr. Anthony requested in his message this weekend, if Jesus has done something in your life over the last 12 months, if you’ve become a disciple, please send us a message with your story so we can share on Pentecost weekend!

I believe that this is a moment for us to reflect on what it means to be a Christian and a member of a parish family. Is Church the building where we worship, or is it the people of God?Fr. Toochukwu Okafor, Pastor
We are one multicultural parish family, located at two Church sites:

New Giving Options Available — This week, we’re taking an online collection. Our parish relies on your financial support, even when we can’t gather in person. Thank you for your generosity!
Buildings are Closed (March 23) — All on-site events, meetings, gatherings for prayer, and Masses are cancelled. This includes the Daily Rosary, open Church hours, Adoration, etc. Both our buildings (St. Thomas More, 15 Caledonia Drive & St. Vincent de Paul, 320 Flying Cloud Drive) are closed to the public until further notice. Our Offices are closed to the public, so please contact our staff via phone or email.
Phishing Email Scam (March 22) — Please be aware of fake email accounts using names of some of priests in our Archdiocese (including Fr. Toochukwu) asking for a favour or gift cards. Please do not respond to the sender as our priests would never ask for money in this way.
Mass Intentions (March 21) — Although public Masses have been cancelled, priests will continue to say private Masses and will pray for your intentions.
Daily Rosary at St. Vincent de Paul Church (March 20) — As a result of closing the offices, there will be no Daily Recitation of the Holy Rosary except on days when the church is open. We ask that people continue to pray the Holy Rosary as part of your personal prayer.
This is a call to return to the origins of Christianity, to become once again like the early disciples of Christ who gathered in their homes to share the word of God, to sing and to pray. They loved and cared for one another such that no one was in need. It was that witness of faith that made people say, “See how much they love each other”. And more people joined their assembly and the Church grew in number and in faith.Fr. Toochukwu Okafor, Pastor
