Return to celebration of Advent in Toronto - Get thee to a Traditional Latin Mass!

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE TORONTO, announces 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.

There are three particular outside of Sunday to which we 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 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!
