SJOC Parish Women's Group Ministry

Formed in October 2021, the Parish Women's Group is a homegrown ministry of the parish, meaning that it originated from St. John of the Cross Parish, started by the women of SJOC Parish, for the women of SJOC Parish, under the direction and guidance of the pastor. 

The Parish Women's Group has a three-point mission:

  1. To gather together the women in the parish
  2. To support each other
  3. To grow together in faith

We organize fun activities, both for parish families and for women only. There are activities for spiritual learning as well as service activities for the parish and the community. These include  Day Trips, Fall Family Picnics, serving in the parish Coffee Sundays, Bake Sales, Women's Retreats, Parish Pilgrimage, Pictures with Santa, etc. We regularly meet every month and sometimes more frequent during winter spiritual studies.

The Parish Women's Group Ministry has all women parishioners as members. To be added into this ministry's emailing list and receive notifications directly or if you have any questions, please contact Liane in the office, 905.821.1331 x 226.

We look forward to have you and celebrate our sisterhood together as women of St. John of the Cross Parish!

God's Peace,

Parish Women's Group Team
