A wonderful way to get your child involved in the Sunday liturgies is to encourage him/her to become an altar server. It is a good way of developing self confidence and giving them a sense of community. To become involved in this Ministry, your child should have received the Sacrament of the Eucharist and be a minimum of 9 years old (Grade 4). The time commitment would be no more than two Sundays per month depending on the number of registered servers for each mass. We are always in need of servers, particularly at our 5:00 p.m. Saturday mass and our 9:00 a.m. Sunday Mass. Please contact the parish office if your child is interested in becoming an altar server.
The Children’s Liturgy of the Word program takes place during both our 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Sunday Masses from September to June. The Children’s Liturgy does not run during the summer.
There are two sessions: 1 for Junior Kindergarten & Senior Kindergarten children and one for Grade 1 & 2 children. Each session is run by two volunteer leaders per session, either a parent volunteer or a high school student.
The objective of Children’s Liturgy of the Word is to provide children with the opportunity to experience the word of God in a way that makes sense to them. Through songs, readings, guided questions and activities, the children are encouraged to talk about the liturgy and how God’s message can apply to their everyday lives. The session also provides parents with the opportunity to listen and reflect on the Sunday’s readings and homily without interruption.
The children proceed to the meeting rooms at the beginning of mass and return during the presentation of the gifts. Parents are welcome to join their child if he/she is hesitant in attending. We are in need of both parent and high school volunteers to lead the sessions. We are also in need of Grade 7 & 8 students to act as helpers. Volunteers are required to commit to 4 to 5 sessions per year; training package is provided. The sessions qualify for high school volunteer hours. If you would like to volunteer in this Ministry, please contact the parish office.
Eucharistic Ministers assist the Priest in the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass. Eucharistic Ministers are appointed for a three year mandate and must be confirmed and practicing Catholics. Training is provided to New Eucharistic Ministers.
An integral part of our Catholic Christian mission is to bring Sunday Eucharist to the sick and elderly who are unable to attend Mass. Next door to our parish is the North Ridge Long Term Care Facility with a good population of Catholic residents. Following the 9 am mass on Sunday, a team of 4 Eucharistic Ministers will bring the Eucharist to these residents, each team serving once a month. Eucharistic Ministers also bring the Eucharist to residents at Post Inn Village. Eucharistic Ministers who bring the Eucharist to long-term care facilities or hospitals must provide a police reference check.
If you would like to become a Eucharistic Minister or would like further information, call the parish office or submit your name on the form in the “Volunteer” link of our website.
Schedules are e-mailed to Eucharistic Ministers. If you do not have e-mail, a schedule will be left for you in the Narthex.
Ministers of the Word proclaim the Word of God during our Sunday Liturgies. Lectors are required to serve a three year mandate and must be a practicing Catholic. If you are interested in becoming a Lector, please contact the parish office. Schedules are sent via e-mail to those who have provided their addresses and all others will be left in the Narthex for pick up.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
RCIA is the “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults”. It is a process of the conversion of people responding to God’s call to join the Catholic Church. This process will involve a journey of faith leading to the Sacraments of Initiation which are Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. These Sacraments will take place at the Easter Vigil. The RCIA process is for those who have never been baptized. We welcome you to explore this journey of Faith at Mary Mother of God Parish. If interested, please contact the parish office at 905-337-2184
Ushers are responsible for organizing the offertory collection, helping people in finding a seat, distributing the bulletin and providing other assistance as required. Part of this ministry is that of hospitality of welcoming people as they come in for our weekend masses. Men and women, 16 years of age or older, are most welcome and encouraged to join this active and essential ministry. If you would like to volunteer as an Usher, contact the parish office or submit your name on the form found in our website’s “Volunteer” link.
