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.





          I was fortunate in being able to travel to Galilee recently, visiting the locations that Jesus and his disciples must have walked along two thousand years ago.  Looking across the massive body of water that is the Sea of Galilee, I saw some fishermen, waiting with their lines in the water.  I could just imagine Simon, Andrew, James and John, nets in hand, fishing along these very shores.

Fishermen play a significant role in the ministry of Jesus.  Several are his disciples and he often uses fishing examples in his teachings, as he does in today’s Gospel.  What’s striking, though, is Jesus’ call to the fishermen.  It’s urgent enough for them to leave everything immediately – their livelihood and families – to follow Jesus.  What could inspire such change, such loyality to a stranger?

            Every day thousand of men and women hear a call to be priests, nuns, teachers, healers and more.  They have described that call as so urgent and strong that they drop the lives they are leading to follow it.  We may not all be called in this way, but each and every one of us is called by God.  We are called to believe, to trust and to live lives that are examples of that belief.  Through the disciples’ example, we’re reminded that having absolute faith in God, even to the point of leaving the life we know, will never be cause for regret.

“My Church is composed of people like me


. . . we make it what it is”.

. . . It will be friendly if I am.

. . . Its pews will be filled if I help fill them.

. . . It will do great work if I work.

. . . It will make generous gifts to many causes if I am a generous giver.

. . . It will bring other people into its fellowship if I bring them.

. . . It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a Church with noble spirit if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these things.


Therefore, with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all the things that I want my church to be!
