How to celebrate Advent in Toronto - Get thee to a Traditional Latin Mass!

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE TORONTO, is announcing a number of Masses for the Advent season some of which are regularly scheduled, and some which are specifically organised by the Society.

On every Sunday in the Archdiocese of Toronto, there are four Masses offered in the Traditional Rite at diocesan parishes. In addition, the Society of St. Pius X offers three Masses at its Toronto Chapel and one in Orillia.

St. Patrick's Schomberg
9:00 A.M. Sung Mass

Oratory Church of St.Vincent de Paul
9:30 A.M. Read (Low) Mass

Oratory Church of the Holy Family
11:00 A.M. Solemn Mass

St. Lawrence the Martyr, Scarbrough
1:00 P.M. Read Mass with music

Society of St. Pius X
Church of the Transfiguration Toronto
8:00 A.M. Read Mass
10:30 A.M. Sung Mass
5:00 P.M. Read Mass
Church of the Canadian Martyrs Orillia
10:00 A.M.

There are three particular outside of Sunday to which I wish to draw your attention.

This coming Thursday, December 8, is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. There will be varied traditional Mass locations in diocesan churches in Toronto plus the SSPX. 

Two more that you should note and attend.

Saturday, December 10 at 9:00 A.M. at St. Mary's Polish Roman Catholic Church on Davenport Road in Toronto; a Read Rorate Mass with Music. While the old "custom" was to start before daybreak, that is not a liturgical rubric. The pastor at the parish offers the traditional Mass every Saturday at 9:00 A.M. and will offer here, the Votive Mass for Our Lady in Advent.

The next Saturday, December 17, is the Ember. There will be a Sung Mass (with Vox chanting) at the Carmel in Mississauga. An incredible liturgy that is rarely, if every sung with its multiple Lessons and Graduals culminating in the sung Canticle of the Three Children from the fiery furnace in Babylon.

Leave the shopping. Leave the insanity of our secular and grotesque and hostile Toronto. Get thee to a Latin Mass and get back to God this Advent!

Deo Gratias
O` Holy Mary Ever Virgin and conceived without sin, pray for us that have recourse to thee.

Too bad there's more to it than just a trad latin mass: i.e. why not go to the Anglo Catholic Mass on 12/8 or 12/24 for all the singin & chantin and robin' and ceremonin'-- but will God be there?

Thursday, 8 December – Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
7.15 am Mass
10.00 am La Messa (Italian)
6.00 pm Procession & Solemn Mass
(celebrated according to the Old Western Rite)
- Prelude Healey Willan, Ave maris stella

- Motet Charles Wood, Hail! Blessed Virgin Mary
- Postlude Léonce de Saint-Martin, Alma Redemptoris mater
… followed by a pot-luck supper.

You are really blessed by the Latin mass on this era of apostasy but sadly in my country Bangladesh there are no Tridentine Mass only Novus Ordo churches everywhere .
