One of my joys is attending Catholic men’s conferences across North America. I find them so inspiring and a way to help me grow in my faith and to meet other men with the same passion I have. As Iron sharpens Iron, men sharpen men.
I’m a sports enthusiast – I love watching and talking sports. I think this is the year for the Toronto Maple Leafs! I also enjoy gardening and cooking.

Hello, I’m Rob Panko and have been a member of the parish for about 30 years. For many years I would occasionally go to mass until a life changing event left me searching. Searching for a deeper meaning of life and death, a deeper relationship with God the Father, Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I was and still am looking for answers.
My quest started with prayer and eventually joining Be a Man. Although the membership was large, we worked and grew together in Small Groups. This was where I learned the true meaning of forgiveness. Partial forgiveness such as to forgive the person but not the act is unacceptable. Forgiveness must be absolute; the person and the act must be forgiven. How could you ask Jesus for forgiveness if you won’t forgive? It is a very hard pill to swallow. Yet doing so has proven to be truly uplifting and life changing.
It became the catalyst of my deeper love of Jesus’ word. I became more involved, joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Knights of Columbus, The Association of Immaculate Heart of Mary Mother of Christ, and have begun to serve in the parish Host and Digital Host ministries.
A desire was built in me to try and live the Gospel every day knowing that I’d fail along the way; yet still, persevering and seeking forgiveness, strength and comfort of the Lord. This started with joining a Small Group, sharing, and trusting in the Lord. It is my hope that our Small Group will provide you with the opportunity to experience such happiness and growth in faith.
