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

The Church acknowledges the indispensable contribution which women make to society through the sensitivity, intuition and other distinctive skill sets which they, more than men, tend to possess.  I think, for example, of the special concern which women show to others, which finds a particular, even if not exclusive, expression in motherhood.  I readily acknowledge that many women share pastoral responsibilities with priests, helping to guide people, families and groups and offering new contributions to theological reflection. 

But we need to create still broader opportunities for a more incisive female presence in the Church.  Because “the feminine genius is needed in all expressions in the life of society, the presence of women must also be guaranteed in the workplace” and in the various other settings where important decisions are made, both in the Church and is social structures.

.  . . . The reservation of the priesthood to males, as a sign of Christ the Spouse who gives himself in the Eucharist, it not a question open to discussion, but it can prove especially divisive of sacramental power is too closely identified with power in general.  It must be remembered that when we speak of sacramental power “we are in the realm of function, not that of dignity or holiness.”

. . . . Indeed, a woman, Mary, is more important than the bishops.

. . . .  This presents a great challenge for pastors and theologians, who are in a position to recognize more fully what this entails with regard to the possible role of women in decision-making in different areas of the Church’s life.

            Young people often fail to find responses to their concerns, needs, problems and hurts in the usual structures.
