Beautification of Cameron Hall
We have received many comments and congratulations for the work that was done in the hall. We thank L’Arche for the donation of window coverings and for those of you who have already purchased a table to replace our older ones. We are still looking to replace many of the damaged tables and to complete the work that has been started in the hall. Please see Tony Di Lallo for more details.

Have a Great Summer!
This is the last bulletin until September! Whether you will be staying in town or on the road we wish everyone a safe and happy summer vacation.

Saturday June 30th at 1 pm in the afternoon!
Held at Loyola High School
The Eric Maclean S.J.
Centre for the Performing Arts,
2477 West Broadway Ave., Montreal.

From 1972-1982, young people from parishes around Montreal gathered at Camp Kinkora for an unforgettable week. The Diocesan Folk Music Camp was a week filled with faith, fellowship, making friends and creating music. Now, 30 years later, it is time to come together again and remember those songs, those people and that fellowship! For more information about the Folk Music Camp reunion, go to our website at

It is with great pleasure that I let you know that Fr. Gregory Nunez, chaplain of the Mcgill Newman center, and who has been a resident here in the rectory with me at St Willibrord will be taking over as part-time pastor of St. Willibrord parish this September. I invite you to welcome him and work with him with willing hearts to continue to bring faith and life to all who come to our parish.

The next two months will be for me, a time for goodbyes before I leave for my studies in Rome. I want to live them as best and as full as possible with all of you. It has been a great blessing in my life to have served you all and you will remain in my heart and prayer. If any of you happen to find yourselves in Rome during the next two years do not hesitate to look me up at the Canadian College where I will be residing.
~Fr Stephen Otvos
