Toronto Anglican Ordinariate Sodality

Today, Sunday  May 6, the Toronto Sodality of the Anglican Use will celebrate its first Holy Mass according to the Anglican Use. Congratulations to all those Anglicans in Toronto who have entered the Catholic Church and have the grace to have this wonderful liturgy. \

It is with great joy that the Toronto Sodality of the Anglican Use announces weekly Masses according to the Anglican Use starting Sunday, May 6th, 2012. Please spread the word!

Mass will be held every Sunday at 1:45pm at Sacré-Coeur (the Church of the Sacred Heart) at 381 Sherbourne St, at the corner of Sherbourne and Carlton, in downtown Toronto.  Anglican Use Masses fulfill Sunday obligation for all Catholics, regardless of whether or not they are of an Anglican background.  There is parking immediately north of the Church, a children’s program during the Liturgy of the Word, and coffee hour afterward.

The Toronto Anglican Use Sodality is a group of Catholics coming from the Anglican tradition who are in full communion with the Pope and who strive to preserve and celebrate our Anglican heritage as a Catholic parish church.

In the words of Anglicanorum Coetibus, we “celebrate the Holy Eucharist and the other Sacraments, the Liturgy of the Hours and other liturgical celebrations according to the liturgical books proper to the Anglican tradition, which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church, as a precious gift nourishing the faith of the members of the Ordinariate and as a treasure to be shared.”

Everyone is welcome to attend and we hope to see you there.

Laus Deo!

They put the anglican use congregation in Toronto's one and only French church?

That's the way it goes in the Catholic Church, brother in Christ Paul. If our enemies without would only leave us alone for a while, we'd rip ourselves to pieces from within for them. The more usual welcome of old Catholics to newer ones goes more like this: Welcome to the barque of Peter. Here's your bucket, start bailing.

(I hope one day to see an anglican use right in all its beauty, but shhh, don't tell anyone. I was also secretly hoping Smoky Tom's would be coming over, but, alas, no such joy. yet.)
