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.


 From the Top

I feel tremendous gratitude to all those who are committed to working in and for the Church.  Here I do not wish to discuss at length the activities of the different pastoral workers, from bishops down to those who provide the most humble and hidden services.  Rather, I would like to reflect on the challenges that all of them must face in the context of our current globalized culture.  But in justice, I must say first that the contribution of the Church in today’s world is enormous.  The pain and the shame we feel at the sins of some members of the Church, and at our own, must never make us forget how many Christians are giving their lives in love.  They help so many people to be healed or to die in peace in makeshift hospitals.  They are present to those enslaved by different addictions in the poorest places on earth.  They devote themselves to the education of children and young people.  They take care of the elderly who have been forgotten by everyone else.  They look for ways to communicate values in hostile environments.  They are dedicated in many other ways to showing an immense love for humanity inspired by the God who became man.  I am grateful for the beautiful example given to me by so many Christians who joyfully sacrifice their lives and their time.  This witness comforts and sustains me in my own effort to overcome selfishness and to give more fully of myself.
