Entrance for all masses will be through the front door of the church only.

LIVESTREAM: Sunday 9:00A.M. Mass

Eternal Rest Grant unto Them O Lord...

Beginning this weekend and throughout November, we will follow the Church’s tradition of praying for our deceased relatives and friends by the offering of all Saturday evening and Sunday Masses for them.

Please record the names of those you wish us to remember at Mass in November on the envelopes provided for that purpose and place your envelope in the basket near the altar. The Basket of Remembrance will remain in the sanctuary throughout November.

If you are not currently attending mass in person, please send the names of your loved ones to the parish office and our staff will ensure that these names are also placed in the Basket of Remembrance.

Please note that no offering is required - we are much more interested in recording the names of those you wish remembered at mass! However, any donations are received they will be used to support the next Refugee family that we sponsor through the Office of Refugees, Archdiocese of Toronto.

All Souls Day Masses, Monday, November 2

Please join us as we will celebrate All Souls Day on Monday, November 2 with masses at 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. which will be offered for our beloved deceased relatives and friends.

Both masses will be livestreamed into the parish hall (for extra on-site capacity) and the 9:00 a.m. mass will also be livestreamed to the parish website for all those joining us from home.

A special Mass of Remembrance will be offered on Saturday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m. for those who have died over the past year. Invitation letters have been mailed to the families whose loved ones have been buried from St. Ignatius Loyola Church over the past year.

St Vincent de Paul Drive-Thru BUNDLE SUNDAY

New Sunday Missals

The new 2020/2021 Sunday Missals are available in the parish office for $5.00 each. The Sunday Missal for Young Catholics is also available for $5.00.

Volunteer Thank You from Cardinal Collins

We extend a special thank you to all of our parishioners who volunteered (and continue to do so) in the various parish ministries that are required to keep our parish church clean and safe (cleaning and ushering ministry), the liturgies well organized (readers, eucharistic ministers and musicians) as well as those behind the scenes (counters, volunteer office assistance).

We have received special certificates from Cardinal Collins for each volunteer who participated since the re-opening in June through to September 30. We will be distributing them in the coming days.

In addition, we encourage all volunteers and parishioners to watch the livestream of the Mass for Volunteers that will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 4 at 7:30 a.m. by Cardinal Collins at St. Michael’s Cathedral at www.stmichaelscathedral.com

New Electronic Donation/Payment Option Now Available

We have moved into the electronic payment world! If you are attending mass at the church you are now able to use our new touchless debit/credit card machine for processing one-time donations to the parish, for paying for mass cards or registration fees for the sacraments, etc.

Please visit the parish office before/after the weekend masses or weekdays (Tuesday – Friday from 9:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m.) and our staff will be happy to assist you!

If you plan to join us via Livestream, we ask that you read the directions in my registration letter and complete the registration form electronically here: http://www.st-ignatius-loyola.com/forms/Communion_Reconciliation.pdf . You will need a computer or iPad to fill out the editable PDF document. Please email it back to the parish office with a scanned copy of the baptismal certificate, StIgnatiusLoyolaMI@archtoronto.org. before the registration meeting. You will also have to physically visit the parish office during the week (Tuesday – Friday, 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. or on a Sunday (8:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.) to pay the materials fee and receive the catechetical books.

My letter and registration forms have been emailed to all Grade 2’s in our parish schools (both in school and distance learners). If you have a child in Grade 2 not in our parish schools who would like to celebrate these sacraments with us this coming year, please pick up a copy of the letter and registration form from our parish office in person or visit: www.st-ignatius-loyola.com under ‘Sacramental Preparation’.

ShareLife: Supporting quality long-term care during the pandemic

The Providence Healthcare’s Houses of Providence is a ShareLife-funded long-term care residence for seniors in Scarborough.

“It’s been hard during Covid-19 since we’re not happy to be inside all the time, but we understand the precautions that staff are taking,” says Mary, a resident. “Providence staff have been absolutely wonderful and are doing a good job. I appreciate that all the staff are extremely careful with us, making sure we are safe. I thank them every time I see them for their hard work.”

We are grateful for your response thus far as we have received $ 215,114 towards our parish goal of $236,500. November 8 is the next ShareLife Sunday.

From now through November 8, you can double the impact of your donation. A generous donor is matching gifts up to $500,000. Please contribute by credit card through the ShareLife website www.sharelife.org/donate or by dropping your envelope in the collection basket or mailing your contribution to the parish.

Civic Engagement Leadership Council, Info and Awareness on Euthanasia

Merciful Redeemer Church is hosting (socially distanced) or online, via YouTube an important presentation on the medical and legal issues surrounding the current proposed changes to Canada’s euthanasia laws on Wednesday, November 4 at 7:00 p.m. (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=merciful+redeemer+mississauga).

Dr David D’Souza and lawyer Daniel Santoro will review the issues in the proposed revisions to Canada’s euthanasia law. The new legislation does away with most so-called safeguards, and now proposes the legal right for anyone, perhaps also even minors, and those who do not have physical suffering. This is a challenge for us: to help provide adequate and loving care for those who suffer, and to love them and help them to find hope in their illness.

Please join us and get the information and motivation needed to be involved, building a culture of life!

Livestream Update

We ask for your continued patience as we work to correct the ongoing technical issues with the newly installed camera. We will continue to livestream into the parish hall, as well as the stream the 9:00 a.m. Sunday mass directly through the parish website (not YouTube) where it should remain for a few days.
