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.




 Lack of sight is not just a physical handicap.  It can be much deeper.  It is a reality that each of us can be blind to so much in life. Someone visits a doctor and learns that they have a terminal illness.  Suddenly they “see” life in a different way.  “I have never seen it that way”, we might exclaim when a friend opens our eyes. “I did not know him/her that well”, we might murmur when circumstances have shown us some beautiful facets of his/her personality, which we had overlooked during years of social contact.

The miracle narratives of the Gospel tell us about people who started a new life once they had met our Lord. Have you “met” our Lord to such an extent that you are convinced that doing things His way will brighten your life? Christ is calling us to see with a new vision…a new set of eyes.  How much do we need to learn that Christ is the light that illuminates the darkness of our lives in order that we might find our way to each other and to God?  Like Bartimeus we need to pray: “Lord, I want to see.”

Let us go to Serve!

Thank you!  The Church is missionary throughout the year and it is every day that we are missionaries.  Once again, we have proof that our people are generous.  The Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith thanks you for your great generosity. It commits itself to pay in full the donations collected on World Mission Sunday of October 18 to the sister churches from Africa, Asia, Oceania, South America and Eastern Europe.  Once again, your generosity is constant from one year to another.  Thank you!


 Remembering Our Loved Ones

            In the autumn of each year the hearts and minds of people all over the world turn to remembrance.  In our churches we too turn in a special way to remember all those with whom we remain united in prayer and in hope even beyond the grave.  We celebrate feasts to remember all the saints in glory and all the saints who have journeyed beyond our reach in death and in the sure hope of the resurrection.


            Holy Name Parish community has always welcomed this remembrance in a special way and we do so again this year.  It is the special privilege of Holy Name Parish community to remember deceased family members and friends in the Eucharist celebrations we enjoy throughout the month of November.


      We invite you to list in our Book of Remembrance the names of those whom you would like remembered in our parish liturgies during the coming weeks. The Book of Remembrance is placed on the altar and is commended to the prayer of all who join us for Mass. All Souls Day Envelopes will be available at the entrance of the church in which you can list the names that you would like to be remembered in our parish liturgies along with an offering for Masses.  You may drop this envelope into the collection basket during the Masses.
