Rebuild St. Anne's Ministry: Donate Today

We are grateful for your continued support to our church community following the devastating loss of our historic church. Help us rebuild our ministry and create a church that reflects our faith through contemporary Canadian art. While insurance dollars might help to cover the building of new facilities, much of the cost will have to be raised by fundraising.

A charitable giving GoFundMe Campaign was launched on behalf of the church. We thank everyone for their care and generous donations. You will receive a tax receipt when donating to this campaign. 

Please share this widely. We are a church for all people and we will work together with the arts community to be a visible sign of who we are. 

Just Announced! August 24th, 3:00pm
Hannaford Street Silver Band Concert in support of St Anne's Anglican Church

 As professional musicians working in the city of Toronto, members of the Hannaford Street Silver Band were shocked and saddened by the fire that occurred at our historic location last month, saying a loss such as this is felt throughout the city and the musical community. 

HSSB have added a special concert in support of St. Anne's as a part of their current Summer Serenade series. The concert will be performed in our Parish Hall on Saturday, August 24th at 3:00pm. This 'donate-what-you-can' concert is open to the public with the aim of raising the most funds possible for rebuilding St. Anne's ministry.


Join Us for a Joint Celebration in Honour of the Feast of St. Anne: Wednesday, July 24, at 7 PM

As part of our growing ministry in West Toronto, we have begun a collaborative ministry with our friends at Holy Myrrhbearers Orthodox Mission to serve the people of our community. For example, members of their congregation have played a significant role in helping us with our community dinner. It has become an example of the growing and deepening relationship between Anglicans and Orthodox, since dialogue began well over a century ago.

While we are still early in our conversations about collaborative ministry, and we will be talking more as a parish about this joint effort, we've been invited to join our Orthodox siblings in a Liturgy of Sung Vespers (Evensong) on Wednesday, 24 July, at 7:00 PM. Our two choirs will sing the Liturgy which will be followed by a reception. We invite you to join us and to begin celebrating the feast of our patron, St. Anne. The celebration will take place in the chapel of Trinity College at 6 Hoskin Ave. All are welcome!

Save the Date! St. Anne's Day Parish Potluck: July 28 at 12:00 PM

You, your friends and family are invited to celebrate our patronal feast day on Sunday, July 28. We will begin the day’s celebrations with Eucharist at 10:30 followed by a parish potluck in the lower hall of the Parish Hall. 


We ask that everyone bring something to share for at least six people, if not more. To keep the potluck simple, we suggest people bring appetisers, salads, sandwiches, and deserts based upon their last name. Please bring the following based on your last name: A-F Appetisers, G-L Salads, M-R Sandwiches, and S-Z Deserts. You can sign-up by visiting this link. Drinks will be provided. 


To keep things simple, we ask that you bring your food to the downstairs kitchen to be placed into the fridge (if need be) just before Mass. We are also asking that people only bring foods that do not need to be heated. This is a simple, but enjoyable potluck. It’s time we enjoy some friendship with each other.


We are looking forward to celebrating the feast day with you. Thank you for being a part of the St. Anne’s Church story.

Introduction to the Gospel of Mark: Tuesday, July 30, 7:30 PM (Online)

Learn more about this fascinating gospel by participating in this interactive discussion which will be hosted online by our very own pastor, Fr. Don. To register and receive further details, visit this link. We look forward to sharing in this workshop with you.

News & Resources

Sunday Scripture Readings Online & In-Print

As we continue to work towards more ecologically sustainable practices in our parish, we will share the Sunday readings through a variety of formats. While they will not be included in the worship leaflet, we will have a handful of copies of the readings in the back of the church for you to collect if you wish to follow-along during service or to take home for personal prayer and reflection. You can also read the scripture lessons online by visiting the Anglican Church of Canada's online lectionary. Learn more about each week's readings by visiting Working Preacher, an online commentary provided by Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Pray Morning and Evening Prayer

One of the wonderful gifts of the Anglican Reformation was the introduction of morning and evening prayer for all Christians. Known as the Daily Office, the prayer is a simple time of praying the psalms and contemplating on a scripture reading or two. You can pray the Daily Office online or with your mobile device with apps such as Common Prayer Canada, which is the Book of Common Prayer for the Canadian Church, or the Daily Prayer app from the Church of England, which includes a contemporary version as well as the classic 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Join us Thursdays at 9:30 in the church or on YouTube as we pray morning prayer.
