Even during difficult times, it is important to mark momentous occasions. St. Brigid’s Parish, located just off Danforth Ave. in Toronto, will be doing that on Sunday, October 25, 2020 when it commemorates its 100th anniversary.
The first Mass at St. Brigid’s was celebrated on Christmas Day, 1920 in what was then a humble wooden church surrounded by fields. Over the following generations, its parishioners have seen a number of hardships, including the Depression and World War Two. But the St. Brigid’s community endured and now has a grand church and a vibrant parish community.
Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, will celebrate a Mass for St. Brigid’s centenary on Sunday, October 25 at 11 a.m., which you can watch on the parish’s Facebook page.
