Greetings from all three of us! For those who do not know us we are Fr. Toby Collins, CR, Fr. Joseph de Viveiros, CR, and Fr. Dan Lobsinger, CR. We are all Resurrectionist priests who have been assigned to St. Mary’s parish as of Sept. 1st. Fr. Toby is the pastor, Fr. Dan is the associate pastor, and Fr. Joseph is an assisting priest as he ministers as the Spiritual Animator in the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. We are all very excited to be here!
We believe in the transforming power of Christ’s love and look to live it out as a community that prays, eats, works and shares each other’s struggles while also having fun together. For us every Sunday is a special Easter moment because we get to celebrate Jesus’ rising from the dead and that in his Resurrection we can all find hope, healing, and a place where everyone feels that they belong. We look forward to getting to know you and everyone in our neighbourhood.
Together with you we hope to continue to build a community that is strong, hope-filled and spiritually vibrant. This means walking with you on a journey where we all experience God’s love for us and look to radiate that same love to everyone we encounter.
May God bless us all as we begin this new chapter in the life of St. Mary’s Parish!
Yours in Christ risen,
Fr. Toby Collins, CR – pastor
Fr. Daniel Lobsinger, CR – associate pastor
Fr. Joseph deViveiros, CR – assisting priest
