SSPX Toronto New Church

A new church for the SSPX in Toronto

From its humble beginnings in 1976, the Church of the Transfiguration started as a smaller congregation that spent its early years gathering in private homes and halls. The missionary and presence of the traditional Latin Mass continued to grow until 1991 when Fr. Jacques Emily formally purchased a church and since then, The Church of the Transfiguration has welcomed thousands of faithful.

Fast forward to today, and you’ll find a church bursting at the seams, struggling to keep up with demand. While the support of the community is positive, the demand means the church needs a bigger space. Before the pandemic, the church was consistently at full capacity while offering three masses every Sunday.

During the summer of 2020, in respect of community health and social distancing, the church expanded to five Sunday masses, including online YouTube live streaming. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, the volume of parishioners continues to grow, and demand has never been higher.

With the support of parishioners, friends, family and the community in the form of donations, Toronto’s Church of the Transfiguration will be able to move into a bigger home to better serve the community and its faithful for years to come. Every little bit helps and there is no donation too small.

As St Therese of Lisieux once said, “Since we see the way, let's run together.”

Now, let us run together to help grow The Church of the Transfiguration grow into a bigger home.
