The Lector serves the liturgical assembly by proclaiming the Sacred Scripture during the Liturgy of the Word. The worthy exercise of this role enables the Church to hear the Word of God more clearly and receive it with more open hearts. Such regular public nourishment with the biblical Word helps to sustain the community and contributes to its ongoing conversion and mission.

Eucharistic Ministers serve the Eucharistic life of the parish community. They are appointed by the Bishop at the request of the pastor to assist with the sharing of the Eucharistic.

The altar server assists the members of the liturgical assembly by presenting or arranging vessels and other items used in the celebrations. Their reverent and efficient service enables other ministers to attend to their own roles while the liturgical actions unfold, with calm, order and appropriate decorum. As members of the assembly who are often visible to all, the altar servers also model good liturgical participation.

Choir – 5:00 pm:

The role of the parish choir is to encourage, support and enhance the singing of the Assembly gathered for worship. For over 20 years, the Saturday Evening Choir has served in the Music Ministry at Holy Rosary Parish. Throughout the years, our members have come from a variety of musical backgrounds, and all levels of experience. We share a common desire to help the congregation enter more fully into the Liturgy through song.

For more information or to join, please contact the Parish Office.

Choir – 10:00 am:

The role of the parish choir is to encourage, support and enhance the singing of the Assembly gathered for worship.

Junior Choir – 12:00 pm:

Our parish recognizes that the youth choir is an integral part of the church community. Your child will learn important skills in music making and discipline, while at the same time experience collaborating as a team, as well as the joyful atmosphere of singing as a group.

Greeters & Ushers serve the Liturgy by helping to establish a climate of welcome, helpfulness and order among those gathered. They assist the assembly with practical details so that the Liturgy and Sacred Rites can be celebrated with ease and grace.

The flower ministry is one of giving glory to God through beauty. We beautify our altar and church with flower arrangements and/or plants using our creative talents.

Dear Holy Rosary Church Parishioners,

Sincerest thanks to you for your ongoing support during this time of uncertainty. It has been wonderful to see so many of you at Mass since we re-opened in June.  We are especially grateful to the volunteers who have helped to ensure that our church is a safe place to gather! 

As you are aware, the number of new COVID-19 cases in the Greater Toronto Area has increased significantly in recent days and, at present, Toronto and Peel Regions have entered into the “Lockdown Stage” as identified by the Province of Ontario.

For this reason, as of  Monday, November 23rd 2020, we must restrict attendance inside the church to 10 people, including priests hearing confessions or a staff member/volunteer to monitor capacity restrictions. Unfortunately, owing 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 Monday to Saturday from 11:00 am-1:00 pm and for the faithful to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  On Sunday, the Church will remain open for private prayer from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. 

Weddings, funerals and baptisms will be restricted to 10 persons, including those who are involved in ministry (priest, cantor, etc.). First Holy Communions and Confirmations will be postponed at this time.

Until we are able to gather again to celebrate the Mass together in our church, I would encourage you to view our weekly Mass online here or any of the livestream/ televised Masses available at  www.archtoronto.org.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued prayers and support. During these unprecedented times we continue to rely upon your help to continue to carry out our mission and to support our community outreach.

The 2021 Sunday Collection Envelopes are available for pick up by appointment only, please contact Angeli directly to make arrangements.

Despite these new restrictions, we will make every effort to continue our outreach to you. We also ask that you find opportunities to assist those who are vulnerable or alone among us.

We will continue to update you as the situation evolves right here on our website.

We pray that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. May God continue to bless you now and always!

If you know a parishioner who does not use the internet, please share this update with them.

Pax Christi,

Msgr. Robert Nusca
Pastor
