Hamilton

UPDATE 25/08/18: The climate has changed significantly in this Archdiocese in terms of general public acknowledgement, so much that Bishop Crosby has assigned a chaplain to the administration of the Extraordinary Form in this diocese, starting Sept 1, 2018. As a result, one can now find Churches who offer the EF/TLM/Latin Mass at this website: https://hamiltondiocese.com/mass-extraordinary-form.php. Individual parishes/communities, however, may have their own social media/internet sites for themselves. The listings are as follows: 

1. St. Anne's Parish, Kitchener (268 East Avenue)

  • Website: https://stanneskitchener.ca/
  • Contact information 
    • Phone: 519 745 5302
    • Email: stannesfamily@gmail.com
  • Offerings
    • SUNDAY OBLIGATION - Every Sunday @ 3pm

2. St. Ann Parish, Hamilton (120 Sherman Avenue North)

  • Website: http://stannhamilton.church/
  • Contact information: 
    • Phone: 905-544-0488
    • Email: stannhamilton@hamiltondiocese.com
  • Offerings
    • SUNDAY OBLIGATION - 1st and 3rd Sundays of the Month @ 2:30pm

3. St. Mary's Parish, Owen Sound (554 15th Street East) aka Grey Bruce Latin Mass Community



However, due to a request from someone affiliated with Kitchener Latin Mass back in 2015, as well as being blocked by their Twitter account, there will not be postings of special offerings on the Christmas and Triduum holy days, as is done by other bloggers, unless listings are promoted by a parishes the EF are under, the official website of the Diocese of Hamilton, or by more friendly communities/parishes offering the EF that are not hostile to websites like mine.   

While this is unfortunate and sad, and contrary to the goals here at Servimus, I ask that out of respect for the parties involved as well as my personal character, that you, readers, abide by my requests (and blog rules) and do not inquire further. Such inquiries will lead to an immediate public ban on the blog, with possible public mention of the offending party.
