The Chapel is the center and heart of St. Mary’s High School. The Chapel was dedicated in 2004 by (then) Bishop Anthony Tonnos of the Diocese of Hamilton. The Chapel serves the needs of all staff and students. Students and staff may visit the chapel to pray, reflect and spend quiet time in the presence of Our Lord. Classes and groups may use the chapel for liturgies, reconciliation, Eucharist and religious events.

From your new Chaplain …

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”
– 1 Timothy 4:12

Helloooo  St. Mary’s!!!

My name is Deacon Ed MacIntosh (you can call me Deacon or Deacon Ed) and I am extremely blessed be the new Chaplain for St. Mary’s High School.

For the last 10 years I have been the Chaplain at St. David in Waterloo and for the 10 years before that I worked in the Elementary School panel doing retreats at Mt. Mary, Camp Brebeuf, and Paradise Lake (YMCA).

I am very excited to be coming to St. Mary’s and starting this new journey with you.

Please feel free to stop by my office (if I can find it) for a chat or just to say “hello!”

Fr. Toby Collins, CR is a graduate of St. Mary’s (2001). He has many fond memories of this great high school and enjoys coming back to visit the students in both a casual and formal setting. He supports our liturgies and our graduates as well as does classroom visits. Please check out his great website – vocation culture – where Fr. Toby invites people considering all vocations (consecrated, married, single, religious which is all of us!) to peruse the site and read up on him and what’s happening.

St. Mary’s Students Give Back!

The students and staff of St. Mary’s are generous in contributing to our Mission projects. Every week a loose change collection takes place after the mission initiative is announced. The focus is on everyone; our world, our country, our province, our region, our city and our very own St. Mary’s community all benefit from the generosity of our staff and students.

To learn more about the organizations that we support, contact the school chaplain

Please help us to help those in need.

THINK fast is a 24 hour education and fundraising fast that takes place every Lent in our chapel.

Learn more about global issues and help those in the Global South to build a better life. Senior students (gr 11 and 12) collect pledges to support the work of Development and Peace’s partners in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. TOGETHER we can make a difference!

For 24 hours our jammed packed chapel is filled with hungry students who participate in prayer, reflections and discussions about the plight of the poor and hungry. As well we play games throughout the school, socialize and some even sleep 🙂
while remembering all the things Jesus did for us and calls us to do today.
