Welcome to Holy Name


Thank you for worshipping with us today.

Please visit our website www.holynametoronto.com for more detailed information on the parish and our faith.




Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The process to begin the instructions in the Catholic Faith for Adults is on its way.

If you are or if you know:

Someone who is interested in becoming a Christian, or

A Christian who would like to become a Roman Catholic, or

A Roman Catholic who has not received the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, or Confirmation; or who wishes to update his/her faith, then the R.C.I.A. is the right place to contact.

Pass along this information to everyone, as Jesus says, “Come and See”.

RCIA is looking for sponsors

In order to best serve the individual needs of inquirers, RCIA is in need of many women and men who would like to share their faith journey.

Each person will sponsor one of our inquirers.  Please call the rectory to have a member of the RCIA contact you to answer any questions.

This is a wonderful work of evangelization and is a very rewarding experience for all of us.  If you interested please call the parish office at 416-466-8281.


Parish Membership


Welcome new parishioners!

To be a registered member of our parish is to have a sense of belonging to a Community of Faith.  Please introduce yourself/family to the pastor and register as soon as possible.  All parishioners especially those who live outside our parish boundaries are expected to complete a Parish Registration from and use Sunday Offertory Envelopes.  This will greatly assist the Parish Team when parishioners request sacraments, funerals or letters of reference.  N.B.  Please notify the parish office if you change your address or family information.
