Church open for private prayer (limit of 10 people at a time)

Monday-Friday: 10 a.m. - 12:00 Noon
Sunday: 10 a.m. - 12:00 Noon

LIVESTREAM OF 9AM SUNDAY MASS

Each week for those unable to join us at the Parish. (Cardinal Collins has continued the dispensation from Sunday mass for those of any age whose health is compromised, have a fever or who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19).

Please note that the use of masks or face coverings inside all public places (including our church) is mandatory. Social distancing requirements result in reduced capacity in our church. We are therefore also livestreaming each weekend mass into the parish hall (with communion provided). With both church and hall in use, we are not requiring our parishioners to register to attend mass, but simply arrive on a first come/first serve basis for each mass. Entrance for all masses will be through the front door of the church only.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT

If you are unable to join us for mass at this time please consider the options of either through our Pre-Authorized Giving Program , or an electronic donation by credit card through the “Donate Now” button at the top right corner of the Archdiocese of Toronto website.

MULTIPLE INTENTION MASSESS

This multiple intention mass will be offered every Friday at 9 a.m. and each First Saturday of the month at 9 a.m.

CONFESSIONS

Saturday 4 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. or by appointmen
(As the priests will use the meeting rooms adjacent to the sacristy please line up in the foyer of the church. Limit 0f 10 people at a time)

LIVESTREAM: Sunday 9:00A.M. Mass

Parish Open for Private Prayer Only

With the Peel Region in “Lockdown Stage” as identified by the Province of Ontario effective Monday, November 23rd and until Monday December 21st we must restrict attendance inside the church to 10 people, including priests hearing confessions or a staff member/volunteer to monitor capacity restrictions. Sadly, due to these measures, public Masses must be temporarily cancelled. Priests will continue to celebrate private Mass daily for the intentions of parishioners and for those suffering from Covid-19. Our church will remain open for private prayer on weekdays Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 12 Noon as well as each Sunday morning from 10 a.m. to Noon (limit of 10 people in the church at a time). The church will also be open each Saturday afternoon between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., during which the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available (again a limit of 10 people in the church at one time). Weddings, funerals and baptisms will now be restricted to 10 persons, including those who are involved in ministry (priest, cantor, etc.)

While I recognize it is not a substitute for attending Mass in person, I encourage you to view our livestream mass each Sunday morning at 9 a.m. via our parish website. Daily televised mass is also available through various channels with a full listing available at www.archtoronto.org. Cardinal Collins will continue the livestream of 7:30 a.m. daily mass from St. Michael’s Basilica each day via the Cathedral website.

It is necessary that the parish office be closed at this time. Please know, however, that we are always ready to assist you or a family member via telephone message or email. When working remotely, we monitor our messages daily.

We also thank you for your ongoing support of our parish, which has increased since our letter to you in early October. Donations (including those for the St. Vincent de Paul Annual Collection and Christmas Gift Cards) may be dropped off in person when the church is open for private prayer or sent through the mail. Alternately we ask you to consider switching your support of the parish to Pre-Authorized Giving or by credit card, or single or monthly donations through the “Donate now” button at www.archtoronto.org

We will continue to update you as the situation evolves through our parish website. We pray that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. May God continue to bless you now and always!

ADVENT 2020

As we began mass for this First Sunday of Advent we sang the ancient hymn of this season:

O Come, O Come Emmanuel,
And Ransom Captive Israel,
That mourns in lowly exile here
Until the Son of God Appear!
<\p>

This year in particular we ourselves feel captive, we feel exiled by the limitations of the COVID-19 virus…especially as we have moved into lockdown and cannot come to mass this weekend and for the remaining three Sundays of Advent.

But the captivity, the exile that is referred to in this beautiful hymn extends much deeper than the effects of the pandemic, it speaks of our need for Jesus, our need for a Saviour…not just when we ourselves are in exile or captivity as the Israelites were, but to guide and lead us throughout our lives.

This is what our Advent preparation is all about…to prepare not just for the short term…not just for the arrival of a vaccine to cure the pandemic…but to prepare in a spirit of repentance to “await with joyful hope the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ”.

In that spirit, I offer the following suggestions for celebrating Advent:

2021 Offertory Envelopes/Pre-Authorized Giving

Thank you for your continued support of our parish during these challenging times, especially through your use of offertory envelopes and/or Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG). Offertory envelopes for 2021 will be available through the parish office only once we the church has re-opened for worship.

I thank those who are currently using the option of Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG) here at the parish. To register for this option please fill out the PAG forms. Since we updated the parish at the beginning of October about the importance of PAG in these challenging times I am happy to note an increase in those who have enrolled! Parish Registration and PAG sign up brochures are also available in the church foyer …thank you for giving PAG your consideration and support!

I thank those who are currently using the option of Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG) here at the parish and remind them to pick up a set of 2021 envelopes for the special collection envelopes are not part of PAG.

Since we updated the parish at the beginning of October about the importance of PAG in these challenging times I am happy to note an increase in those who have enrolled!

PAG sign up brochures are available in the church and hall foyers …thank you for giving PAG your consideration and support!

Sacrament of Confirmation 2021

Earlier in November we circulated to the Grade 7 students of our three parish schools registration materials and information regarding the Sacrament of Confirmation 2021. If you have a Grade 7 student in your family who did not receive this package (perhaps attending another school or virtually attending this year) please visit our parish website home page under the Sacramental Preparation tab for more information.

Please note that Confirmation Registration will take place Tuesday December 8 or Wednesday December 9 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. with the Livestreaming of the Registration meeting both evenings at 7:30 p.m. (so that there is time to return home with the materials in hand to view the meeting remotely). You may wish to visit the parish office during the week or on Sunday to pay the materials fee and receive the catechetical books in advance of these registration evenings. Any older youth or adults wishing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in May 2021 are asked to contact Fr. Mauricio as soon as possible.

First Reconciliation and First Communion Registration for Grade 2 Parent/Guardian and Children

Thank you to all those families who registered and watched the Livestream of the Registration Meeting last week. We will be accepting late registrations until the end of November- please complete the registration form electronically (please visit Sacramental Preparation tab above on this home page) and send it electronically with a scanned copy of the baptismal certificate to the parish office at StIgnatiusLoyolaMI@archtoronto.org. by November 30, 2020. You will then be contacted to arrange to pick up the materials and to pay the registration fee. Once the family receives the preparation books we will be in touch with you for further instructions for the viewing of the Livestream Registration Meeting.
