Annual General Meeting 2011-- We Report
On Saturday, October 27, 2012 the Toronto Traditional Mass Society--Una Voce Toronto held its 8th Annual General Meeting following its founding in 2004. We present here, our summary.
As has become our custom, the day begins with the Holy Mass, this year, a Missa Cantata for Our Lady's Saturday after Pentecost followed by a wonderful brunch. Our Guest Speaker, Mr. Damian Goddard was our guest speaker and spoke from his heart about his love for Christ and His Church and his conviction to the truth. We provided our Treasurer's Report and President's Report. The Constitution of the Society was significantly amended. Those of the existing Board were re-elected and new Directors were added for a total of nine. All votes were unanimous; note, there was not one dissenting vote!
The fact that the votes were unanimous is a great blessing. The meeting was the largest attended ever since the founding of the Society and there were more paid-up members at the date of the AGM than at any other time in our history.
Our liturgical assets continue to grow and now include:
Acolyte Processional Candles
Solemn Mass and Requiem Mass Altar Cards
Catafalque Candlesticks and Candles
Solemn Set of White/Blue Marian Vestments
Our plans for the next year include a Solemn Mass on the each traditional Holy Day of Obligation and other First Class Feasts. We are planning a conference on the Usus Antiquior a major fundraising dinner and collaboration with those who are prepared to move forward in faith, harmony and fraternity.
