We are all being encouraged to spend more time outdoors during this pandemic. So we hope this short video of St. Gabriel’s garden will entice you to do just that. If you are not able to visit the garden in person, then you can enjoy it virtually by clicking on the link provided. There are always plants in flower. Right now, Hairy Beardtongue is putting on quite a show in the south garden, with competition from Smooth Oxeye and Calendula and the Lily Walk in the north garden is at its peak. A stroll before or after mass is guaranteed to lift your spirits and calm your soul.

Welcome back to St. Gabriel’s Passionist Parish!

The church will be open for private prayer by appointment only starting on Sunday, June 14 and continuing on Monday and Tuesday, June 15 and 16. Please telephone the parish office at 416-221-8866 to reserve an appropriate time for you to visit.

As well, weekday masses at 9:00 am will restart on Wednesday, June 17.

Weekend masses will restart on Saturday, June 20 at 4:30 pm with Sunday masses at 8:30 am, 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.

In accordance with guidelines established by the Province of Ontario and the Archdiocese of Toronto, attendance at masses will be limited to 30% capacity of the church, while at the same time respecting the physically distance rules of 6 feet which will actually reduce the capacity even more. We will have more detailed instructions available for weekend mass attendance available on June 17.

Please be aware that wearing a mask is strongly recommended. You should not be attending at church if you are not feeling well or have any signs of sickness!

Unfortunately, the parish office is not currently open to the public.
