When something organic and good in the life of the Church, that is being done to rejuvenate the living Tradition of the Church is happening, be it liturgical, spiritual, etc. I am more than happy to promote it and support it here at Servimus Unum Deum.
The pastor of St James Catholic Church, Rev. Ignacio Pinedo, has decided to contribute to such work via hosting Novus Ordo Latin Masses. Considering that this ended a couple years ago at the Oratory of St. Phillip Neri to fit in one more Latin Low Mass, it would be worth attending and supporting. Should this be successful, it could become a regular occurrence, and maybe spread to other parts of the archdiocese.
The details for this month`s Latin Novus Ordo is as follows:
Saturday March 7, 2015 (NOVUS ORDO) - Saturday Vigil, Liturgy for 3rd Sunday of Lent.
St. James Roman Catholic Church - LATIN NOVUS ORDO,

- Bulletin Advertisment/Online (Archdiocese of Toronto News and Events):
" Latin Mass Revisited - Rediscover the beauty of the solemn Latin Mass in this modern Eucharistic celebration. We will be celebrating the Mass using the original Latin text of the Third Typical Edition of the Roman Missal (note: this is not the Tridentine form of the Mass). Side-by-side Latin and English Missals will be provided for those attending. A truly uplifting experience that is both ancient and new, bridging past and present. For more information, contact St. James Church at email@example.com or call 416-767-6451."
TTC-wize, it is closest to Jane Station, and one can take a bus down Jane St. to get to the Church or close to it.
As an added bonus, I WILL be finally able to make one of these Masses and attend it in support of this Archdiocesan initiative. I hope you will attend to, in replacement (or in addition to,) your regular weekend Mass be it Latin Mass or Novus Ordo.
Hope to see you there. Pax Tibi Christi, Julian Barkin.
