LIVESTREAM: Sunday 9:00A.M. Mass

Church Re-Opening Effective Friday, June 11th, Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

As part of Stage 1 of the Province of Ontario Reopening Plan, I am delighted to announce that churches will be permitted 15% capacity for religious services including baptisms, weddings and funerals beginning on Friday June 11. The percentage includes anyone assisting with the service (priest, volunteers, etc.).

Here at St. Ignatius Loyola Parish in our earlier re-openings we had already been limited to 15% capacity due to Social Distancing requirements/ pew arrangement in our church and hall…and so we will simply return to this capacity.

On Friday June 11 (Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, World Day of Prayer for Priests) we will offer two masses: 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. (doors open 30 minutes before each mass), Holy Hour to follow 9 a.m. morning mass. The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus - and Cardinal Collins has recently released a new pastoral letter on the Sacred Heart of Jesus, "Heart Speaks to Heart." This is a significant reflection on one of the most sacred symbols in the Catholic faith and what it can teach us in these difficult times, and I encourage you to read it here.

On Saturday June 12 (Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary) mass will be at 9 a.m. followed by the praying of the Rosary (doors open at 8:30 a.m., church closed at 10 a.m.)

Confessions will continue to be offered each Saturday 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Weekend masses on June 12 and 13 (and each weekend thereafter) will be celebrated according to our regular weekend mass schedule once again: Saturday 5 p.m., Sunday 7:45 a.m., 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and Noon (Church open 30 minutes before each mass). We will not be using Evenbrite to book these masses…First Come First Serve Basis until we reach capacity in church and hall).

Weekday masses beginning Monday June 14: Monday to Friday 9 a.m, (and First Saturdays July 3 and August 7 August 9 a.m).… first come, first serve basis with doors open at 8:30 a.m.

While the Parish Offices remain closed, the church will remain open for private prayer Monday to Friday: 9:30 a.m. until Noon.

Livestream of Sunday 9 A.M. Mass

For those not comfortable or able to return to mass quite yet we continue to encourage you to view the livestream of our Sunday 9 a.m. Mass via the link at the top of this page.

At communion time we invite you to join in the following prayer:

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

Statement From Cardinal Collins Re: Discovery of Children's Remains at Former Kamploop's Residential School

As you are aware, there has been considerable media coverage and discussion in recent days following the discovery of children’s remains at the former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia. I ask that the following statement be read out at your livestream mass on Sunday June 13.

The Kamloops Residential School was operated for many years by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. To read the May 30, 2021 apology from the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, please follow this link.

To read more apologies and resources from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishop, please follow this link.

Finally for a PDF document of some FAQs re Catholic Organizations and Residential School can be found here.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us.

First Holy Communion Masses: Sunday, June 20 and 27, 2021 Confirmation Masses Postponed Until Fall 2021

We are happy to move forward with our First Holy Communion Masses on Sunday June 20 and Sunday June 27. We will be in touch with our First Communion families by Friday June 11 about rehearsal dates and the booking of a First Communion Mass through Eventbrite.

We have already postponed the celebration of Confirmation Masses to the fall of 2021. All registered Confirmation families received this news in a mid-May update email, and we will be in touch with them again in early September with a further update.

ShareLife 2021: Living the Gospel by providing for those in need

“Without you, ShareLife could not fulfill its mission to live the Gospel by providing for those in need. Together we are making a real difference! My prayer is that we may continue to respond to God's love by going forth from ourselves to seek the good of others.” — Cardinal Thomas Collins

Rose of Sharon is an agency you support through ShareLife. It provides support and educational services to almost 300 young mothers each year. Deanne Kukulewich is the Executive Director at Rose of Sharon. She says, “COVID-19 has forced many young single mothers into seclusion, not for themselves, but to protect their babies, or unborn infants. Through generous donors like you who support ShareLife, young mothers can receive weekly support. Your donations help the Rose of Sharon Services for Young Mothers to provide counselling services to help young women and their families cope through these uncertain times.”

When you give to ShareLife, you support more than 40 agencies doing vital work that is truly living the Gospel message.

Thank you very much for supporting our parish’s ShareLife campaign. Thus far we have raised $140,000 toward our goal of $234,600. Thank you to those who have contributed to our annual appeal. If you have not yet done so, you are invited to reflect on your ability to help those in need and make a sacrificial gift to help those who turn to our agencies for help.

Monthly Pre-Authorized Giving is a convenient way to spread your ShareLife contribution throughout the year. You can learn more about PAG through the Sharelife website. However you give, whatever you give, thank you for supporting ShareLife!

Your Financial Support is Appreciated

Thank you once again for your generosity and support of our parish community as we return to church and during Holy Week, especially by placing your envelope in the offertory basket before mass or mailing in your donations, or donating via Pre-Authorized Giving or by credit card, or single or monthly donations through the “Donate now” button at www.archtoronto.org

Please join us at the end of each mass in praying the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel:

Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
