ABOUT THE PARISH

Founded in the spring of 1913 by Father Patrick McDonald. Saint Willibrord Parish began by serving the English-Catholic community of Verdun. Since then, our mission has always been to grow our understanding and love for Christ, to nurture diversities and to be at service to our brothers and sisters. Today, the parish welcomes Catholics from all around Montreal and elsewhere to celebrate the Lord.
