Proposed Church Design for St. Josephine Bakhita Parish
We are a people who weave together this neighbourhood as:
- a community of faith, committed to live the Greatest Love of Jesus Christ Crucified, and Mary, Mother of Charity at the foot of the Cross.
- a community of prayer, nourished by the Word of God, the Eucharist, and the traditions of the Church, reflected in the way we live and celebrate.
- a community that welcomes every woman and man, child and youth, of all cultures, to equal discipleship in Jesus Christ.
- a community that is missionary, open to the needs of the world, committed to the promotion of justice, peace, and the stewardship of creation.
- a community that is not afraid to face its pain and yet deeply trust “in the hope that saves.”
We believe that each one [of us] is called to be the strand that God will use to weave a tapestry in this place; a tapestry that will be intricate and exquisite.
The parish community gathers for Holy Mass at St. Joan of Arc Secondary School, 3801 Thomas Street, Mississauga, ON.
We also gather at St. Peter's Mission Church on Ninth Line, just north of Britannia Road. St. Peter's Mission Church is an old mission church, built in 1823 by Irish Catholics, who came to farm this area in the beginning of the 19th century. The area was called "The Catholic Swamp". The old church is a great testament to the sturdy faith of the first migrants. We take pride in inserting our story to theirs as we form the Parish of St. Josephine Bakhita.
Where is our Parish Office

Our Parish Community thank the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board for providing us with an alternative site for our Christmas Masses
when power went off during the Ice Storm.
May God reward them for their hospitality and generosity of spirit.
