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.


University of Notre Dame Glee Club Concert

Tuesday, October 22nd the University of Notre Dame Glee Club will perform a concert of sacred music in our church as part of the 100 years festivities.  Admission is free but the proceeds will be directed towards the Church renovation fund.  They will do this for the parish with the understanding that the parish provides their supper before the concert as well as overnight billeting in homes of parishioners.  We are seeking volunteer families to host these students providing them with one night’s sleep and a simple morning breakfast (cold cereal and coffee or more if you wish).  Please contact the parish office if you wish to assist or for more information.

Each person will sponsor one of our inquirers.

Rehearsals are in the church.  Dates are to be determined. The choir sings on Sunday at the 10:00 am Mass.

If you enjoy singing and can carry a tune, we ask you to consider joining the Music Ministry.  Although reading music is an asset, it is not a requirement.
