55+ Social Club

55 Plus is a precious group that offers an opportunity for seniors to socialize over a game of cards. A core committee organizes the weekly gatherings and occasionally plans bus trips to various places of interest. Refreshments are provided for a nominal fee of $1/week. Wednesdays 1:00 pm-4:00 pm in parish hall (Sept-June). Contact: Ken Sutton


St. Benedict Bowling League has been around since Msgr. Breen founded the parish in 1957. A great way to relax, our recreational League attracts adult bowlers of all ages and calibres, who come from our parish and beyond. Good fun. Good exercise. Good value. Good night out. The season runs from the first week of September to the last week of April, on Thursday evenings. Prizes and good-spirited competition will bring you back season after season. We play at Bowlerama Rexdale

Social Committee

Social committee is a generous group that draws on the talents of the community to prepare for and joyfully celebrate various parish events. This includes selecting a theme for parish events, setting up and decorating the church hall for different social celebrations. They help build up our sense of family here at the parish, by facilitating the good times! If you're not necessarily the Martha Stewart type, there is still be a place for you on Social Committee. New ideas, fresh energy and even raw muscle are always appreciated to get an event together! Open to men and women. Contact: Janet Huitema
