North of Toronto? Traditional Mass is in Schomberg

Nestled on the north shoulder of the Oak Ridges Moraine, Schomberg is a small village located at the north end of King Township at the junction of The King's Highways #9 and #27. Here in this little farming village from the 19th century is a little village church built in a neo-Gothic style and appropriately named in honour of St. Patrick. It was to these villages and farming communities outside Toronto that the Irish were banished from the "Ulster of North America" following the waves of immigrants that survived the fever shed on the lakefront after their long journey to escape the famine in Ireland.


Here, you find the lilt of a travelling Irish priest celebrating the usus antiquior every Sunday at 9:00.
