We are excited to be able to celebrate our graduates together this year! We invite graduating students, their families & all UWindsor students to Mass for Graduating Students.

Vocations Retreat

Next Tuesday is a special day for me- its my second Anniversary of Ordination! As I complete my second year of Priesthood, I continue to be amazed by the ways in which the Lord has called me to serve and follow him. That call has certainly looked a lot different over the last year due to the pandemic, but it is still present!

Preparing for Christmas with the O Antiphons

Written by Fr. Steven

O Antiphons

“O Come, O Come Emmanuel”- many of us have no doubt heard or sung this song countless times during the Advent season. The lyrics of this song evoke a sense of longing and anticipation- a sense of waiting for the promised Messiah to come. These lyrics, based on the O Antiphons, are part of the Church’s tradition, used in the Church’s worship as Christmas draws near.

Music with Mary

As we approach the halfway mark of Advent, I find myself increasingly thinking of Mother Mary. As someone who was due to be born on Christmas Eve, not a year goes by where I don’t hear my Mom talk about how much she identified with Mary that Christmas as she waited for me to born.

This week marks both the feasts of the Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Guadalupe, with a lot of music inspired by Mary. You can find the full Spotify playlist here, but here are a few of my favourites:

Podcasts I'm Loving

Written by Jessica Lemmon

I never really understood the hype of podcasts until I found myself in this season of Covid. Sometimes my eyes would get tired from reading, and quite frankly, I’m not the biggest watcher of television shows.

Reclaim the Weekend

Written by Chrisandra Skipper

When I was in University, I would go to class Monday-Thursday and then head to work at Canadian Tire on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Then after work on Sunday, I’d go over to the Church for Mass and to help with our high school ministry. It was busy during the week and on the weekend, but I did have a distinct difference between my week and my weekend.

Advent Packages

It can be difficult to experience Advent as a University student. The end of the semester and finals take over and it can be hard to fit in any extra prayer or devotion or intentional preparation. So, we're coming at you again with CARE PACKAGES for Advent!

We had so much fun preparing September Care Packages and we hope we can bless you with some fun and spiritual support as you prepare for finals and experience the season of Advent.

There are 2 ways to receive your package this time:
