THE AUGUSTINIAN MONASTERY

 

THIS IS NOT THE MARYLAKE MONASTERY OFFCIAL WEBSITE!

My name if S.G. (John) Tantalo. I am the owner of www.marylakemonastery.com, this website.

I started the website in 2001 as a hobby. I love Marylake and have been comming to festivals here for over 50 years.

My personal responsibilities and obligations have kept me from working on it. In fact, I have done very little with the website for a number of years!

My intent is to keep this site in a brochure like format that only gives you general information about Marylake.

However, from time to time, I will post special events occuring at Marylake and I can only do this on a best efforts basis.

Please visit the offfical site at http://augustinians.ca/ "Augustinians at Marylake In Canada"

Thank You for visiting and I hope you enjoy the site. God Bless!

Welcome to this web site about the Marylake Shrine in King City, Ontario, Canada. Marylake is home to the Augustinian Monastery, (Order of St. Augustine, Province of St. Joseph).

The information you find here about Marylake has been reproduced from pamphlets that can be obtained at the monastery. I hope you find it informative and I appreciate your comments and suggestions that can make this site a better one.

Thank you so much,
Sebastiano G. (John) Tantalo - Webmaster

I've dedicated these Marylake web pages under the protection and intercession of St. Augustine who composed this beautiful prayer to the Holy Spirit.

PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,
That I my thoughts may all be holy.

Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
That my work, too, may be holy.

Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,
That I love but what is holy.

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,
To defend all that is holy.

Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
That I always may be holy.

Amen. (St. Augustine)

Originally the farm and summer home of Sir Henry Pellatt. During the depression in the thirties the Basilian Fathers established an agricultural school on the property. In 1942, James Cardinal McGuigan, the Archbishop of Toronto, invited the Augustinians to establish a shrine and to offer a program of weekend retreats for lay people. The title Our Lady of Grace comes from an Augustinian shrine in Lisbon, Portugal. The retreat program, initiated in 1943, so prospered that it was necessary to double the facilities for retreatants by adding to the red brick "farmer's house" in the early fifties. In order to house the steadily growing religious community of Augustinians and to provide pilgrims with a place of worship, a new monastery and shrine church were built in the sixties. In 1964, Cardinal McGuigan laid the cornerstone for the new shrine building and it was dedicated in 1978 by Cardinal Carter.
