Sunday, July 5th after all Masses

John Ford’s voice was legendary, but it was his generosity and faith that has made an impact on our parish. Each First Sunday you are invited to bring donations of food or cash which will be used to support the social justice ministries of the parish.

In the past, donations were sent to the Daily Bread Food Bank, but the ministries recognized the need to support or our outreach. For more information, please see the explanation under the NEWS section.

Parking at St. Basil’s

On Saturdays, parking is permitted for 2 hours at any time only on the NORTH side of St. Joseph St.

On Sundays, parking is permitted for 2 hours at any time on both the north and south sides of St. Joseph St. Parking is also permitted on Bay St. and is free up until 1:00 p.m.

Parking is not permitted at any other times and cars that are parked inappropriately may be ticketed.

There is a pay-parking lot behind Alumni Hall at the west end of St. Joseph Street just before Queen’s Park Crescent. Metered street parking is also available on St. Mary Street, immediately to the north of the church.

St. Basil’s is readily accessible by TTC: the closest subway stations are Museum, on the University-Spadina line, Wellesley, on the Yonge line, and Bay St., on the Bloor line. The Bay St. bus (route #6) also stops at the corner of Bay St. and St. Joseph St.

"But where will my umbrella go!?"
Despite the wind and rain, parishioners braved the storm and crowded the pews this weekend.
There was little space for wet umbrellas, so some of us had to get creative...
