Annual General Meeting - President's Report

The Annual General Meeting of the Toronto Traditional Mass Society-UNA VOCE TORONTO was held on Saturday, November 29, 2014 at 9;30 A.M. following the Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at Holy Family Church, Toronto.

The Board has been elected for a two-year term.

The financial report was given and received.

A review of the year's work was given with the highlight being the Mass in the Presence of a Greater Prelate on the Vigil of Pentecost with Cardinal Collins presiding to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the ordination of Msgr. Vincent Foy.

Una Voce Toronto was approached by Msgr. Foy in December 2013 to assist. The Board immediately pledged its help in every way to the good Monsignor. This included securing the Master of Ceremonies and liaison with the Chancery including His Eminence. A fund-raising project was undertaken to offset the expenses. A complete promotion was launched, the printing of the Missalette designed by Una Voce Toronto and the securing of the Schola, Choir and Organist for the Mass.This was the first time in half a century that this liturgy was celebrated.

In 2013, the Society raised a significant sum for Seminarian Joseph Heppelle which was matched by an anonymous benefactor.

This benefactor has committed to do the same this year. We ask for your donation again this year.

We are perhaps most pleased that for the first time in 50 years a Triduum in the traditional Latin Rite was held which the Society organised. We are committed to again undertaking this important work at the Carmel of the Infant Jesus in Zephyr.

The Society continues to work to ensure that all First Class Feasts have a Sung or Solemn Mass. We continue to maintain and develop relationships with our faithful priests and are pleased that more and more are expressing quiet interest.

The goals for 2015 include a continuation of Masses, the creation of a professional logo through Matthew Alderman Studios and the development of a new web page. This will begin a major push to increase membership significantly in order to mount a Conference in 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Summorum Pontificum.
