Christians in the Middle East Exhibit at Our Lady of Sorrows – Feb. 3/4, Parish Hall

A people, A face, A newness among the rubble

Marta Zaknoun, a free-lance journalist living in Toronto and parishioner of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, has been following the situation of persecuted Christians in the Middle East. She was profoundly moved by their witnesses of faith in Iraq and Syria and wanted to meet them and understand their stories. In October of 2015, she travelled to Jordan, where many Christian refugees found temporary asylum following the invasion of northern Iraq by the Islamic State militia in the summer of 2014.


Movie Time at OLS: War Room – Sunday, February 11 at 2:30pm, Parish Hall


In celebration of Marriage Sunday on Feb. 10/11 we are screening the movie “War Room”, a compelling drama with humour and heart that explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives. The movie is a vivid reminder that prayer is a powerful weapon. Hotdogs, popcorn and drinks will be available for a minimal cost. Proceeds will go to ShareLife. Mark your calendars and see you at the movies!

Pancake Tuesday – February 13, 5-7pm, Parish Hall


Enjoy pancakes & sausages, along with coffee, tea or juice. Don’t forget the maple syrup! All proceeds will go to the 2018 ShareLife Campaign. Mark your calendars! Volunteers Needed: cooks, servers and helpers are needed from 3-8pm. If you are able to help, please contact the parish office at 416 231 6016 and leave your name, phone number and email address.



Totus Tuus is a multi-tiered program for Catholic children & youth in the Archdiocese of Toronto. We invite children and youth parishioners of Our Lady of Sorrows to join us for Totus Tuus (Latin for Totally Yours) this summer from July 15 – 20, 2018. The program offers a one-week summer camp broken down into two distinct streams: Summer Day Camp which runs 8:45am-2:30pm designed for students in Grades 1-6 and Summer Evening Program designed for students in Grades 7-12 which runs from 6:45pm until 9:00pm. The program is facilitated by highly trained, Totus Tuus Missionaries, with support from the local parish coordinator. Interested? Email totustuus@sorrows.ca for more details.

Parking Lot Policy & Guidelines


In October 2016, the approved Parking Lot Policy and Guidelines of Our Lady of Sorrows were disseminated to parishioners and the community at large. We would like to inform everyone that we have now installed all the necessary signage and the Policy and Guidelines will be strictly enforced.


Phase II Renovation

The entire Cliveden south stairwell as well as the north exterior basement stairwell are closed during construction. Basement hall and washrooms can be accessed through the glassed-in stairwell on the west side of the church.

Hearing Assist Headsets


Parishioners who have trouble hearing at Mass are welcome to request a Hearing Assistance device from the ushers when they enter the church. They are available on a ‘first come – first served’ basis. These headsets pick up the feed directly from our sound system and can be used with or without hearing aids.

Liturgy of the Word with Children

This program for young parishioners (4-10 years of age) takes place on Sundays at the 9:30am Mass. Please note that access to the hall is through the west glassed-in stairwell.

A Beautiful Prayer to Start Your Day!

Morning Prayer

"In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I will begin this day. I thank you, Lord, for having preserved me during the night. I will do my best to make all I do today pleasing to You and in accordance with Your will. My dear mother Mary, watch over me this day. My Guardian Angel, take care of me. St. Joseph and all you saints of God, pray for me..."
