當建堂小組獲得主教府之承諾後，立即展開千禧年千元運動，Karaoke 演唱會及義賣等籌款工作，並按時向堂區內教友報告籌款及建堂之進展。 另一方面，建堂小組與則師緊密聯繫，商討一切有關招標之工作。經過一番商討並最後獲得主教府的同意，第一期工程在千禧年八月二十四日正式動工。
In November 1998, at the request of the Archdiocese of Toronto, Fr. Dominic Kong was transferred from Hong Kong to succeed Fr. Ruggiero as the new Pastor. Upon arrival, Fr. Kong immediately continued the path of his predecessor. The church construction plan and fund raising campaign were injected with new energy and spirit.
In September 1999, the church construction plan was approved by the local authorities and the parish Church Building Committee was formed at the request of Fr. Kong. Professionals and experts such as architects, engineers, lawyers, chartered accounts, project consultants, and systems mangers were invited to volunteer to share their experience.
The church site was blessed by Bishop Robert Clune on July 31, 2000. The weather was not cooperative but it did not dampen the enthusiasms and hope of the 400+ attendees.
The actual construction contract consisted of two phases since funds for the whole project could not be raised in time when tenders were called. The first phase began on August 24,2000, which included the construction of the main church, activity hall, classrooms and the pastor quarter. The first phase was completed in August 2001. The second phase, which included the office, internal fixtures and decors, began in December 2001 and was completed in April of 2002.
