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.





          The Church is called to evangelize, to grow disciples.  These days there are many books and programs detailing the how and why of evangelization.  Today’s Gospel, however, details the essential starting points of genuine evangelization.


            Evangelization begins with the encounter.  John and his disciples encounter Jesus as he walks in the countryside.  John shares with Andrew and the other disciple what he has come to believe, that Jesus is the Anointed One.  Andrew and his friend are open to knowing more about Jesus, so they begin to follow him.  Jesus makes himself available to them by asking them.  “What are you looking for?”  The disciples respond by asking a question of their own, which results in an invitation to “come and see,” to a deeper relationship.  We know that this encounter and invitation were the beginning of a life-long relationship that changed the course of history.


            Participation in the New Evangelization, which flows from our encounter and relationship with Jesus, begins with our very human care and concern for each other.  These simple actions can be the grounding through which others share with us what they seek and we in turn share the good news of Jesus’ saving action.
