Welcome to St. Bart's
Welcome to St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church in the heart of the Regent Park / Cabbagetown area of Toronto, and welcome to our website. Since 1873 St. Bartholomew's has ministered to the spiritual and physical needs of all who have come to our doors. We are an Anglo-Catholic parish in an ethnically diverse community, and include people from many walks of life. Our Children's Centre, which has been a part of our local community since 1983, provides after-school care and nurturing for young children from ages 6 to 12. Our outreach programs provide vital assistance to many in need. If you are looking for a parish or would just like to visit, or make a contribution, be assured of a warm welcome.
Weekday Mass Times
Weekday masses are now offered on Wednesday evenings at 6pm and Friday mornings at 8.30am. These are quiet, contemplative services for those who wish to receive communion during the week.
On the last three Saturdays in Advent at 5pm there wil lbe celebrations of the 'First Vespers of Sundays.' These will be abbreviated evensongs sung to Greogrian chant. Please consider making one or all of these part of your Advent discipline, as we prepare to celebrate our Lord's first Advent at Christmas. Please see the Cathedral White Pages or contact Father Hannam for further information.
Christ's Church for Regent Park!
Are you looking for a quiet place to pray, read, or just to get away from the hectic busy-ness of the day? We have been asking ourselves the question: How can we be more fully present, as Christ's Church, to the the people of the new Regent Park? Father Hannam has suggested that, as a first step, we might aim to keep the church building open over the lunch hour, from 11.30 to 1.30, Monday to Friday. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! If you would like to sign up to 'populate' the church during some of that time, to help provide a contemplative space for the people in our wider community, please be in touch with Father Hannam. Your prayerful presence in our church will itself make a difference to the lives of our neighbours!
Interested in learning more about the Church's Faith?
Father Hannam is offering a course in Mystagogy (advanced catechesis) on Wednesdays at 6.30pm at St Bart's during Advent. The course begins on Wednesday, November 27 and continues for the following three Wednesdays (December 4, December 8 and December 11). This will be a wonderful opportunity to think about and discuss our common Faith with one another and perhaps with new friends from other local parishes! Please contact Father Hannam for more information.
