Church Remains Open During Stay-At-Home Order

The Government of Ontario has launched a province-wide stay-at-home order starting on Thursday, April 8, 2021. Ontarians are asked to stay at home except for essential matters. Acknowledging that religious practice is essential in the lives of many Ontarians, the provincial government has not changed the current 15%capacity limit for places of worship, while maintaining two metres/six feet of physical distance between households.

Here at St. Ignatius Loyola, we will continue to celebrate our regular weekday and weekend mass schedules with the 15% seating capacity and social distancing remaining in place as it as been over the past several weeks. Our church will also remain open for private prayer Monday through Friday after the 9 a.m. mass until 12 Noon. Confession will be available each Saturday 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by appointment.

We thank you for using EVENTBRITE to book space for weekend masses over the last few weeks as we dealt with larger crowds for Holy Week. Beginning this weekend (April 10/11) we will no longer be accepting bookings via Eventbrite. Instead, we will go back to welcoming parishioners into the church on a first come first serve basis approximately 30 minutes before each of our Saturday 5 p.m. and Sunday 7:45 a.m., 9 a.m., 10:30 and Noon masses. Please note that we are not able to use the hall for overflow capacity during the stay-at-home order.

We sincerely thank the many volunteers who have assisted and continue to assist us during these challenging times as Ministers of the Eucharist, Ministers of Hospitality, Minsters of the Word and Pastoral Care. Thank you one and all!

This is a profoundly serious moment in the pandemic. The province is running out of hospital beds and that jeopardizes the lives of not just COVID-19 patients, but those who get into accidents or who are sick from other illnesses.

Churches in the Archdiocese of Toronto will continue to strictly enforce the protocols that have kept our parishioners safe while in Mass. We ask that parishioners not congregate in or around the church before or after Mass.

The Archdiocese of Toronto strongly encourages those who are at an increased risk of COVID-19 to stay at home. Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, continues his dispensation of the faithful’s Sunday obligation at this time.

Cardinal Collins has also released a video encouraging the faithful who are eligible to receive a vaccination to do so as soon as possible - it can be viewed here.

To learn more about the ethics of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, you can read the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops' statement here.

For those who cannot physically attend Mass, there are several virtual options available, including:

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.

Thank you for supporting ShareLife! The goal for the 2021 ShareLife Campaign is $13.8 million. Our parish goal for this year is $234,600, and we have raised $44,584 to date.

“Our goal can be met, but only with your help. I invite you to join today's generation of heroes by making a sacrificial gift to ShareLife. As you contemplate the blessings God has entrusted to you, please join me in giving to ShareLife to the best of your ability.” – Cardinal Thomas Collins

This year we are encouraging you to give at www.sharelife.org, where you can make a one-time or monthly gift by credit card and designate it to our parish’s campaign. Monthly giving is a convenient way to spread your ShareLife contribution over the course of a year.

Using a green ShareLife envelope, found at the doors of the church or available from the parish office, simply fill out the form on the envelope and include a void cheque. Submit it to the parish office or drop it in the offertory basket at any time. Contact ShareLife at slife@archtoronto.org or 416-934-3411 if you have any questions about pre-authorized giving.

Next weekend, April 18, is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.

First Holy Communion Celebrations Delayed

Due to the stay-at-home order in place for the next four weeks we have postponed our First Communion Celebrations planned for late April and early May. Our new tentative dates (which will be confirmed in early May) are Sunday May 30 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., and Sunday June 6 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., with rehearsals on either Tuesday May 25 at 7 p.m. or Wednesday May 26 at 7 p.m. An e-mail has been sent to all registered families advising them of this unfortunate delay. Please continue to pray for our First Communion candidates and their families!

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.
